As a therapist, my focus is schizophrenia/psychosis and personality disorders .
When you are in psychological distress and someone really hears you without passing judgement, without trying to take responsibility, without trying to mold you, the impact can be profound. I strive to be authentic, accepting, and empathetic in the therapeutic relationship to provide a safe space that allows for you to be truly heard. My ideal client is one who is open to doing the difficult work. Yes, if we do the work then life becomes an opportunity to love, and live.

I have many years of experience treating adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, personality disorders , suicidal ideations, self harm, and troubles with adjustments & life transitions.
It is inevitable that life is challenging and often times, we feel stuck and need reminders that we are not alone. As a psychotherapist, I understand that each client has a unique story of their own and that each client deserves tailored and individualized care. We will start by establishing what goals you would like to achieve in therapy and will then create a treatment plan collaboratively. I tend to pull from your strengths and values, and will work with you to unpack unhelpful thinking patterns and maladaptive behaviors and will explore alternative coping skills that will be more sustainable for you in the long run.

Due to many years of experience working in family court, I understand the emotional and parental consequences of high conflict divorce (including the impact of narcissistic abuse).
Are you stuck but trying to move forward after a break-up or divorce? Were you traumatized by deceit or even a double life and wondering if you can ever trust again? Or are you simply terrified seeing so many red flags and disingenuous individuals in the dating pool? No matter what your age or life stage, when a relationship ends whether by choice or by the actions of another, you may be caught off guard and thinking clearly can be difficult. You may experience self-doubt, insecurity, anxiety, and fear. It can be helpful to work together to regain confidence (in yourself and others).

Experience in working with many issues including PTSD, anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, OCD, personality disorders , substance abuse, separation issues, adoption and issues related to abuse and neglect.
Our experiences in life can present us with challenges, stress, depression, anxiety and emotional turmoil in the here and now. Everyone can benefit from emotional support to help navigate the difficulties of life, especially when our own coping and problem skills don't seem to manage what we are experiencing. Initiating therapy is the start of building our coping skills in navigating through the course of life and achieving our goals. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is critical in a non-judgmental and safe setting. I want to help you achieve your goals and reach your full potential.

My experience encompasses a wide range of problems from severe, personality disorders , and major depression, to common complaints that affect one's quality of life.
People inspire me... the way they meet the myriad challenges that life presents. Life can be difficult and most of the time we take it in stride and often retain our sense of humor in the midst of this difficulty. Sometimes, we are unable to do it alone. Taking the appropriate steps, you will persevere. Psychotherapy does work; further suffering is optional. Please call me for a free consultation: 708-271-2864.

I am highly specialized in treating people who demonstrate personality disorders , attachment, intimacy fears and addictions.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is the crucible within which clients are helped to heal their pain. I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen. The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are worked through so the client feels taken care of. The clients I treat often come into therapy in a survival mode. I help people in moving from survival to a life of thriving and self love. Dysfunctional behaviors creates people who feel inauthentic, even to themselves. I assist people in developing true authenticity and a real self.

My professional experience has focused on working with adults and families dealing with adversity and life transitions and an array of other challenges including anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, trauma, family conflict, relationship problems, mood disorders, personality disorders , self-esteem, chronic illness, and women's issues.
I strive to use interventions that meet the specific needs of my clients in a safe, comfortable, and nonjudgmental way. I often use a cognitive-behavioral approach (CBT) in psychotherapy as I help my clients adjust and overcome maladaptive thinking patterns and behaviors. I also utilize dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and other therapeutic modalities as a way of teaching clients important coping techniques to manage their stress and navigate their challenges. My goal is to help my clients learning healthy ways of living and a positive mindset to overcome challenges.

Do you feel trapped in your thoughts and emotions? For many people dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or trauma emotions and thoughts can feel like they are constantly overwhelming and painful. They can often feel trapping, keeping you from enjoying life the way you might want to. However, it doesn't have to stay this way. Together we can learn how to manage these seemingly uncontrollable painful experiences. Understanding our internal experience, and being equipped with tools to handle our reactions, is often the key to improving our lives.

In addition to seeing a wide range of clients, I have two areas of specialization: 1) Intensive psychotherapy of 'severe mental illness' and personality disorders (with or without medications) including schizophrenia, bi-polar, or borderline personality disorder.
Do you know what you need to do or think, but still can't do it? Do you understand how to move forward but find yourself stuck nonetheless? Maybe you have medically unexplained health problems, or doctors telling you it's in your head? These are some of the reasons people seek psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years in various settings including a university student counseling center and public mental health clinics for the seriously mentally ill and have effectively worked with clients struggling with conditions ranging from adjustment disorders (reactions to stress) to schizophrenia.

I currently have the privilege of being the Executive Clinical Director and co-founder of Skyway Behavioral Health, a Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient behavioral health center targeting complex trauma, PTSD, mood, anxiety, and eating disorders as well as co-occurring personality disorders .
Many people come to me saying that they don't recognize themselves anymore or that they are not living the life they want to be living. They might feel plagued with negative thoughts, fear, anxiety and overall feel stuck because the things they were using to cope in the past are not helping them now. If you have been feeling this way, you are not alone! I have spent my career working in clinical leadership and providing care for clients struggling with eating disorders, PTSD, complex trauma, anxiety, depression & body image concerns. I believe in providing empathy + evidenced-based treatments and the power of healing in community.
