I consider myself a trauma focused attachment therapist.
"I see your fear, and it's big. I also see your courage, and it's bigger. We can do hard things." My practice specializes in providing individual therapy to women of all ages who are struggling with attachment trauma, anxiety, divorce, motherhood, and relationship conflict. With specializations in perinatal mental health, insecure attachment, anxiety, and trauma, our treatment course can help you realize all the answers you’ve ever needed come from within you. Sometimes what we need most is for someone to show up and authentically bear witness to our struggle. That is how I view my role as a therapist.

Do you struggle with setting boundaries or prioritizing your needs in relationships? Do feelings of guilt or shame keep you from being vulnerable? Do you ever find yourself feeling anxious or depressed but can’t understand why? Trauma can often play a role in how we think, feel, and act. As a trauma-focused therapist I have a thorough understanding of not only the impact trauma can have on a person’s life but also a person’s capacity to heal from trauma. I practice within a relational approach to therapy based on the mutuality, respect, and collaboration within the therapeutic relationship.

I view therapy as a safe and sacred space for processing life experiences, emotions, thoughts, and trauma in order to achieve one’s goals and necessary growth. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with clients to understand their thought processes, address barriers to wellness, and identify ways in which they can achieve their goals. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives: however, sometimes we need an outside perspective to help re-frame our thinking. I’m here to work with you to increase self-awareness and empower you to approach life in a way that enhances health and well-being.

I am the Director of Compass Health Center's Trauma Program (Chicago), where I offer specialty care and supervise a team of psychologists, professional counselors, and clinical social workers. I strive for more than patient “functioning” as an end goal; I support my patients toward self-actualization and greater inner connection. If you feel stuck, consider a depth psychological approach. Many patients have only experienced supportive or solution-focused therapies, not realizing how these approaches inadvertently maintained their unhelpful patterns. Together, we will strive to find the right answer, not just the quick one.
