Together, we will embark on an embodied and creative process, incorporating body-based techniques and mindfulness in an approach tailored to you to help you find healing and wholeness by connecting to your body and learning to be present.
When you live with trauma or emotional pain—or just plain feel lost—it can be difficult to manage your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Together, we can sort out what is and is not working for you so you can feel in control and step into your authentic self. You can find a sense of balance and peace as we navigate the patterns you have fallen into and develop opportunities for healing and a new way of being in the world. As a therapist fluent in American Sign Language, I work extensively with the Deaf community. I am passionate about working with Deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in a way that respects their culture.

I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), DBT, mindfulness , and motivational interviewing in my work.
Are you struggling to connect with others or feel alone despite having friends? Perhaps this leads to frustration or alienation. Or maybe you find yourself frequently putting others' needs above your own, to the point where you feel run-down and emotionally exhausted. You may be facing a major life change or decision, either for yourself or for your family. In these situations, it can be hard to tap into your own thoughts or cope with overwhelming emotions. It can be hard to know where to start, but you don't have to do it on your own!

I incorporate strength-based, holistic and mindfulness principles as well as consider how cultural and societal factors impact physical and mental wellness.
Life is one continuous transition. We are constantly learning, growing, changing and evolving. I believe therapy is for everyone and we can all benefit from an unbiased perspective in our lives. Together, we'll learn to detach from difficult emotions, reframe negative beliefs and explore grounding techniques. I enjoy working with clients who are working through life transitions (specifically fertility, perinatal, postpartum and parenthood) and navigating interpersonal relationships. I also have a passion working with those questioning life's bigger questions, or trying to gain deeper understanding of self through a spiritual lens.

My approach to therapy is integrative, helping the body and mind work together towards healing. I draw from holistic and somatic therapy techniques, practical neurobiology, yoga philosophy and meditation, mindfulness and mindful imagery, and frameworks of anti-oppression and intersectional feminism. I welcome folks who want to weave a spiritual or energy work component into therapy. I love talking with clients about tarot, astrology, the chakra system, nature, ancestral healing, intuitive gifts, and any other forms of energy work. If you connect with a practice that I'm not familiar with, I would love to learn about it from you!

I draw on my experience in improvisation and music to make therapy a co-creative process, focused in the present moment, with somatic and mindfulness approaches to support a sense of internal aliveness, well-being, and authenticity.
I work with people who are experiencing anxiety and distress. Many feel stuck in unsatisfying experiences. We can gently explore these experiences in ways that can loosen their "grip", and bring innate healing resources into play, cultivating a deeper sense of ease and opportunity in everyday experience. The dissolving of these unsatisfying patterns, and the appearance and growth of more satisfying ones, happens in both individual and relationship therapy.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Chicago with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Chicago can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Chicago MBCT therapists.
