I use tangible tools to help you make real change in your life: I'll help you reduce anxiety, manage grief , de-escalate anger, or process the specific issue you're currently facing. I give honest feedback, and use warmth and humor while holding you accountable in a safe and supportive environment. I also love working on improving communication, rebuilding trust, increasing emotional connection, processing infidelity, and goal-setting for singles and couples. I have also completed Gottman Level 1 training.

I work with adults experiencing a wide variety of clinical issues with a special interest in grief and loss , women's issues, anxiety, depression, isolation, relationship issues, spiritual concerns, life transitions, and career changes.
I believe it is a great honor and privilege to accompany my clients on their journeys of healing and self-discovery. Informed by a background in the arts, education, and community organizing, my approach is at its core systems-informed, intersectional, humanistic, and client-centered while drawing on ACT, CBT, and solution-focused interventions. With an interpersonal style marked by warmth, acceptance, sincerity, and dry humor, I use the therapeutic relationship as a space to create authentic connections, empowering clients to harness their own unique strengths, talents, and life experiences towards growth and integration.

You matter. It is a true privilege to work with each of my clients. My practice is eclectic: some clients are working through trauma issues, while others are addressing difficulties coping with life transitions, grief , relationship issues, anxiety and depression, or emotional instability. Regardless of your reason for seeking therapy, your feelings and experiences matter - you are important to me. I don't see you as broken, instead that you are not satisfied with how you are coping with the often complex and contradictory world we live in.

I am specialized in problems surrounding loss , grief , and trauma.
My style of therapy is best suited towards clients who hope to develop a meaningful therapeutic relationship that can be used to better understand and address uncomfortable feelings and problematic relational patterns. By helping clients talk about disappointing and hurtful relationships throughout their lives, I have been amazed to see how well clients can make sense of what once seemed confusing and disorienting, ultimately moving forward with greater confidence. Additionally, I have a deep respect for the healing process that ensues when people can increasingly express their feelings and thoughts free of fear or inhibition.

Therapy is an opportunity for personal development in a safe, supportive, and sometimes challenging environment.

In addition to working with medical related transitions, I am committed to working with individuals who have experienced grief , loss , and trauma or abuse.
Life is ever changing, and with change can bring a plethora of other emotions including stress, depression and anxiety. It takes strength to seek help when we are feeling most vulnerable. I aim to create a safe, warm, and supportive connection with another person and use that connection to cultivate change. I’d like to help you become empowered to accomplish your own goals and to take control of your life. All transitions are difficult, whether it is anticipated or unexpected change. As adults, we have many responsibilities to uphold. This can include career, relationships, and family, emotional and physical health.

The first is a grief and loss group designed to assist individuals who have lost a loved one.
We often find ourselves unable to move forward due to the enormity of the situations that are presented to us. We may feel stuck, tired, and at times, hopeless. So we armour ourselves to face the world. This armouring occurs in the form of addictions such as overeating; using drugs and alcohol; isolating and repeating patterns of toxic relationships. As a result our hearts become numb. We move through life with an armored exterior, fearful of experiencing our feelings and emotions. By creating a safe environment, I help unlock and release pain.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Chicago grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Chicago.
