My work with individuals has focused on improving relationships, family of origin exploration, and managing stress and anxiety.
The therapy process is both challenging and transformative. I have worked with clients who seek to improve their relationship with themselves and others, navigate life transitions, and learn new ways of coping with the inevitable ups and downs of life. I have deep respect for my clients' courage and vulnerability, and it's a privilege to be a trusted part of the therapy process.

My work is informed by my experiences at a variety of college settings, including The Family Institute at Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Michigan.
I believe that emotional growth is best achieved within a non judgmental, compassionate and safe therapeutic relationship. I recognize that each person is the expert on his or her life and we work collaboratively to identify areas clients would like to address. The client and I work together to examine thoughts, feelings and behaviors; we identify patterns, develop tools, and find ways to respond differently. Understanding and strengthening relationships is also a crucial part of my work with clients. Ultimately, I focus on clients' strengths and work to empower them to promote positive change, growth, and healing in their lives.

For the past 15+ years, I have had the pleasure of helping individuals and couples find relief from life's stressors. I work with a wide range of concerns and am especially effective with life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship, LGBTQ, grief, and family stressors. I aim to provide a safe, supportive, confidential space to help you deepen your self-understanding, change problematic patterns, and enhance self-esteem. As a feminist and multicultural psychologist, I am also sensitive to the ways oppression and marginalization affect psychological wellbeing, and I welcome clients from diverse backgrounds and identities.

It is normal, on occasion, for everyone to experience some anxiety dealing with life. But lately those feelings have become overwhelming. Over time, it feels like you are anxious about everything, and nothing. The worry is starting to creep into every aspect of your life- work, family , relationships,... even going to get out of bed feels overwhelming some days! You are not going crazy, and you are not alone- anxiety is one of the most common reasons people reach out to for help. Therapy can help get things back to normal.

I work with individuals with a wide variety of concerns including relationship concerns, family -of-origin concerns, parent-child dynamics, identity development/exploration, trauma-related difficulties, low self-worth, life transitions/adjustments.
Welcome! I am so happy that you are taking this step towards healing and growth! It’s my personal belief that all humans have the power to grow and heal, but sometimes we get lost or stuck on this journey. It can feel overwhelming and disheartening when we find ourselves stuck back in familiar (perhaps uncomfortable) places we’ve already been. That’s okay! It’s a part of healing. Therapy is a powerful place where we create insight into these patterns and find relief to live a more fulfilling life. As a therapist, I value safety and collaboration within therapy, and empower clients to always prioritize their safety.

There's no cookie-cutter approach to our lives, no one size fits all, no magic formula that will suddenly make things different or better. I see therapy as a collaborative effort and unique relationship. We have to start somewhere, so why not here? I enjoy working with teens and adults who are seeking to develop and explore their identities, relationships, trauma, and life transitions. Whether you're flying solo, seeking support for your family or as a couple, I got you.

I received my bachelor's degree from Bradley University and my master's degree in marriage and family therapy from the Family Institute at Northwestern University.
I believe that relationships are an essential element to our overall wellness. I understand that there are times when we may feel stuck in negative patterns and disconnected from those close to us. Counseling can provide a way to help clients navigate these struggles and promote health and growth in their relationships. By utilizing compassion and self-acceptance, I believe that we all have the ability to create positive change in our relationships and our lives.
