I have more than ten years of experience working with individuals on a range of problems including depression , anxiety, trauma, relationships, family of origin, life transition, and medically unexplained symptoms.
Having lived in different countries (China, England, and the U.S.) and lived the life of both a “majority” and a “minority”, I am able to connect with people in their diverse life experiences. I see therapy as a relationship between two people committed to face the deeper truths of our lives. I am here to understand your unique personal story, and support you in sorting out complex emotional and relational concerns. The goal is for you to set yourself free from limiting barriers, build emotional resilience, and develop more fulfilling relationships with others.

I focus on and have experience working with trauma related symptoms and disorders, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression , attachment disruptions, life transitions, personality disorders, identity development, and the LGBTQIA+ community.
My hope is to cultivate a therapeutic environment that is authentic, empathetic, non-judgmental and filled with compassionate curiosity. I view therapy as a collaborative process that encourages growth, resilience, self-compassion, and empowerment in the areas that are important to you. As an art therapist, I can incorporate the art making process as a restorative tool to increase insight using nonverbal forms of expression and expanding imaginative capabilities within oneself. My desire is to provide a safe space to explore past experiences and traumas while creatively working towards healing and growth.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in River North, Chicago. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
