As a human being, you probably know that life has a way of creating challenges for us that we may find difficult to face on our own. As a therapist, I firmly believe each of us possesses fundamental inner-strengths that not only can help us cope with these challenges, but help us thrive. My goal is to come alongside clients in a compassionate, nonjudgmental stance to help you identify what your strengths are and how to translate those into meaningful growth, both within yourself and in relationships with others. I value using a mind/body approach to therapy and am LGBTQIA+-affirming, sex-positive, kink and poly-friendly.

Do you avoid social events, experience worry or fear, or sometimes expect the worst even where there's no apparent reason? If you answered yes, you may be experiencing anxiety. Do you feel sad, hopeless, discouraged, or disinterested in life? If you have difficulties functioning in your daily life due to this, you may be experiencing depression. There are effective interventions for anxiety and depression, and you're not alone. My goal as a therapist is to walk with you through your journey and encourage you to gain a fuller understanding of yourself, and find hope and healing.

Have you experienced a life altering situation and finding it difficult to adjust to life as it is now? Perhaps talking to your friends or loved ones about it isn't quite working for you, or maybe you don't have a support system. This is where therapy can help. I understand that the sense of uncertainty can manifest as anxiety, depression, or even frustration and I am here to help you navigate through these experiences. As a cultural-relational therapist, I help clients both process their lives and experiences while also giving them tools to thrive in the future.

My aim for my clients is to gain an attitude of self-compassion and an empowered mindset. I believe that, generally, we are all doing the best we can with what we have. Unfortunately, sometimes what we have are old stories or traumas deeply embedded in our minds and bodies that make it difficult to find fulfillment in ourselves and in our relationships. Together, we can create distance from such burdensome threats to our current well-being. Using a relationship-focused, holistic therapeutic approach, I work to help my clients untether from fears and allow them to reach their full capacity to connect, to love, and to live.

Clients who most appreciate working with me are seeking an integrative mind-body therapy experience. Holding a safe, nonjudgmental, and inclusive space for you to "unpack" and rewire, my approach is considered holistic and collaborative. I work "bottom up" to increase body awareness and regulation in the nervous system, which can facilitate profound healing and change. For those seeking deeper regulation and more sustainable wellness, I offer nature-based healing interventions.

Life can give us experiences of fun and excitement. At the same time, there are periods where day-to-day life becomes overwhelming. When these waves of overwhelm arrive, we can experience difficulty identifying ways to deal with our feelings. We may struggle in naming what we are feeling and subsequently experience a sense of impossibility and helplessness. Through my work with individuals and couples, I developed a repertoire of interventions to guide my clients who are struggling with relational issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, and emotional dysregulation.

I approach therapy with the aim of fostering a healthy and strong therapeutic alliance to create a genuine and collaborative relationship to address life’s challenges together. I establish a non-judgmental and communicative space that allows us to explore challenging topics such as past trauma, stigma, emotional difficulties, and overwhelmed feelings. Together we will identify the impact of past experiences on current functioning, exploring the interplay of the physical, mental, and emotional.

What type of Chicago mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Chicago?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
