I am in training for the Somatic Experiencing approach to trauma, which I use in therapy.
Every person deserves to be valued for who they are and where they are in life. Life challenges can lead us to feel disconnected from ourselves. There can be great value in reclaiming our entire selves, with all we have been through and currently face, while stepping into the unknown. Being truly witnessed can help us reconcile our realities, regain hope, and remember our gifts. I wish to honor your life by offering a warm, accepting haven for you to exist, unpack, discover, heal, and co-create your life in light of who you are and the unique opportunities and challenges you experience. You deserve to feel at home with yourself.

I have supplemented my traditional psychotherapy education with additional training in body-centered psychotherapy, including Somatic Experiencing and Somatic Experiencing Touch.
I am offering both virtual and in-person counseling services. I specialize in treating the issues that arise from unresolved trauma, difficult early life experiences, pre and perinatal trauma. My goal is to support and empower my clients by using an integrative and collaborative stance, incorporating my background in psychodynamic psychotherapy with body-centered and mindfulness-based techniques. It is my hope that by equipping my clients with the skills to develop their own self-awareness, self-compassion, clarity, and peace, they can go on to experience more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

I am currently training in Somatic Experiencing, an approach that addresses trauma stored in the body.
If you are feeling stuck, I can be a guide in helping you find movement in your life. I will work with you to better understand your body and mind's ways of knowing. We may use creative practices like artmaking and body awareness along with discussion. Based on your goals, we will find what works best for you. I use a relational approach with a dash of humor in my practice, making space for both the hard things and the good stuff in life. Therapy should help you to feel that range more deeply, to feel you have options, and to feel capable of knowing what you need.

I have spent the last 13 years becoming expertly trained in therapeutic models that are both restorative and result producing (internal Family Systems, Somatic Internal Family Systems, EMDR).
When we are able to truly understand ourselves and our relationships, we can build a life of genuine meaning and connection. Many people enter into therapy only to find themselves gaining small amounts of insight that produce little or no changes in their life. My therapeutic methods produce results that not only change the way we feel about ourselves in the world but change our behaviors. I am respectful of the fact that everyone's pace and tolerance to different interventions varies. My work is reflective of the care and respect I have for each and every client as individuals.

The pandemic--along with our wonderful Chicago winters!--continue to challenge us to figure out ways to stay active, hopeful, and connected to each other. Winter can also be a valuable time to take stock and work on personal issues, and video therapy can make engagement that much easier. I specialize in working with clients who are struggling with a number of things at the same time (such as life transitions, anxiety, trauma). My ideal client is someone who is interested in going below surface issues, and potentially including some "body-up" or somatic work in their therapy.

Using a warm, direct style, I invite intellectual grappling as well as somatic (body-oriented) and spiritual experiencing.
I welcome all parts of you into our work. Using therapy as an experimental space we’ll explore your passions, strengths, & sources of joy. We’ll also explore the relationship issues, harmful stigmas, difficult emotions, and ongoing patterns that are keeping you feeling stuck. Together, we'll examine your choices and imagine a new way of being. I often work with artists, activists, healers, and service industry folks to find meaning & purpose during this strange time. My goal is to help you feel nourished & supported so that you can open to new possibilities of healing.

We integrate traditional psychotherapy with coaching, mindfulness, EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Breathwork, Somatic work, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems and other evidence-based approaches through teletherapy.
My approach to therapy is to create a safe space where you can explore and heal the difficult and painful issues that are showing up in your life. Together we will move beyond problem-solving into releasing the deeply held mistaken beliefs and core unresolved issues behind your symptoms. My body-centered and somatic approach allows me to work directly with your nervous system to address symptoms like anxiety, racing thoughts, and irrational fears as well as feeling stuck, depressed and unavailable or unresponsive to life and relationships.

Welcome to the Center for Relational Transformation. We are a group of relationship experts who can help you with any relationship issue or any psychological issue that stems from relational difficulties (depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, neglect, abuse). Based on what we now know from the latest research in neuroscience, deep healing on a fundamental level is possible. Instead of just treating symptoms, we can cue up and facilitate "corrective emotional experiences" that can profoundly heal past hurt and trauma for both individuals and couples. You don't need to suffer any longer.
