Right now, my practice is full. Life can bring difficulties in many forms - daily stresses, significant transitions, major losses and conflicts in relationships. Especially in this time of the coronavirus pandemic, anxiety and grief feels overwhelming. We work together in a collaborative relationship where the goals are defined by your problem areas and desires for improvement. I use an interpersonal approach to therapy but also include cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapy. It's a privilege to be a part of this process with my clients. I look forward to working together.

My Treatment approach is tailored to each individual with a wholistic approach that draws from a diverse array of modalities including cognitive-behavioral approaches, clinical and interpersonal psychology, mind-body wellness, pastoral psychology, psychodynamic and Jungian psychoanalysis.
Welcome! I believe that one of the essential ingredients of change and transformative psychotherapy is the relationship between the individual and the therapist. Feeling understood and comfortable only helps reduce one's symptoms, encouraging self-acceptance, but also leads toward deeper work which promotes lasting change and a deeper experience of one's whole self.

My orientation is psychodynamic and relational, often short-term, but also in-depth treatment where that is indicated.
You spend years looking for someone who gets you, someone who completes you in so many ways. Sometimes you just can't find that person. Or you always mess it up. Or you do make a life with someone, and then you discover that you're arguing all the time, hurt, and lonely. Maybe relationships are not your issue: It's a career thing, an illness or a loss that you can't bounce back from. As human beings, we seem to need to give ourselves to things, to love and be loved. So why is it so hard?

Although each person's experiences provide a unique starting point for therapy, I tend to conduct psychotherapy using an empathic process informed by psychodynamic , interpersonal, and cognitive approaches.
(I currently am unable to take new patients). I work with individuals who feel anxious, sad, or are having difficulty in relationships, work, creativity, or with their physical well-being. I have worked extensively with individuals of many ages and backgrounds, including young adult, adult, and older adult men and women whose concerns surround issues of identity, grief/loss, low self-confidence, and painful inhibitions in success or fulfillment. I also work with individuals who are struggling with the effects of medical illness.

I have direct clinical experiences and training in psychodynamic therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
I have had the privilege of working with adults of all ages and various identities. I am passionate about supporting my clients facing loss, identity development, anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. Sometimes life catapults us into a new chapter - filled with both challenge and promise - that we may not have asked for. As these moments accumulate over time, we find meaning and change through fully experiencing the present and deliberately reflecting on the past. Therapy with me encourages both. My aim is for you to have a space to show up wholly as you, however that may shift from session to session.

My integrative style, grounded in the best modern scholarship, blends cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic and mindfulness approaches in promoting health and personal growth.
Compassion. Insight. Empowerment. I'm committed to blending clinical expertise with warmth and respect for each client's wisdom, to create a healing, growthful partnership. A hallmark of my approach is cultivating mindfulness: nonjudgmental, moment by moment awareness that promotes living more fully, less reactively, and making better use of one's resources. Whether addressing depression, anxiety, stress, past trauma or current relationships, I begin by creating a space of acceptance. Here, we cultivate insight: the ability to observe accurately, think clearly, and choose wisely. Together, we explore options, drawn from clinical scholarship, collective wisdom, and clients' evolving self-awareness.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in South Loop, Chicago, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
