I strongly believe that every human being has innate inner strength and I want to help you fully realize your own. I have the most experience treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem concerns, disordered eating, addictions and trauma. My approach is non-pathologizing and largely influenced by the Internal Family Systems model and values exploration. This healing framework is particularly useful for those who are interested in identifying harmful patterns of self-protection, reestablishing a sense of internal harmony and aligning their behavior with their values.

I am the owner and psychotherapist at Essential Therapy Chicago. I've had years of experience helping clients grow and find emotional healing in private practice settings. In my work, I aim to create an open, welcoming therapy environment where clients feel empowered to make positive changes in their personal lives and relationships. I work with clients to identify their strengths and to set goals of therapy that are exciting and motivating. I base my practice on an integrative approach which allows me to not only provide short-term symptom relief and mood stabilization, but also to foster longer-term growth and self-explorations.

I am a therapist who works with adults who are looking to make sense out of the mentally draining clutter and confusion building up in your thoughts and mind. My goal is to help you find balance in your thought-life through an increase of self-awareness and initiate practical steps towards the life you want to see. I believe therapy works best when there can be collaboration between the therapist and client to create an environment where you can be honest about your needs and desires, heal from your experiences, and explore your feelings without guilt or pressure to perform or be accepted.

We all deserve to be happy and fulfilled in our relationships. However, healthy and meaningful relationships do not come without work. Whether it is with your intimate partner, friends, family or coworkers, the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our mental health. I help individuals understand how their past experiences, sometimes traumatic, impact their present struggles related to anxiety, stress or depression, and often interfere with their ability to cultivate and maintain relationship satisfaction.

We aren’t meant to go through life alone. We need people around us to celebrate the highs, talk us through the lows, and above all else, we need people to listen and hear us. I truly believe that no problem is too small for therapy and that no one should have to navigate the tough parts of life on their own: I want to hear your story, and I’m here to support you through your journey. Therapy is a collaborative effort that requires us to work together to create goals that will best benefit you, while being mindful of where you’re in that moment.

My core belief that people are resilient and are capable of growth. The first step to making change in your life or to get “unstuck” can be difficult. With warmth, encouragement, acceptance and a little laughter, we will work together to find new ways of coping, identify patterns that no longer suit your needs, build and repair relationships, and create a positive therapeutic relationship while you explore your desires, goals, and motivations. My approach to therapy is trauma-informed, affirming, and client-centered. Through a social justice lens, I recognize the multiple systems that affect your experiences and relationships.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
