I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, educator, and former teacher. I believe the power of healing lies in being connected to others, and collaboration is the heart of my practice. The stresses of life can isolate and alienate us from those we rely on for support. A therapeutic relationship is one where you can be connected and understood without the judgment inherent in your other relationships. Therapy should be a place where you can be comfortable being yourself and learn the tools and skills to improve your satisfaction with life.

I am a clinical social worker and I strive to provide a safe environment in which you can explore your issues and challenges, face difficult life choices, recognize the sources of your conflict and reactions and empower your strengths. Are you able to communicate your sexual wishes and needs to your partner? Therapy can help you learn to relate to one another verbally, emotionally and sexually. My approach to psychotherapy is to integrate insight into emotional patterns with behavioral and cognitive techniques, and other modalities depending on each client's unique needs.

As a firm believer in the power of genuine human connection, the dynamic between my clients and I is of my highest priority. A professor and mentor once said, “The question should not be, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ But rather, ‘What has happened to you?’” This quote shapes every conversation I hold with my clients. I am dedicated to breaking down the stigma of traditional talk therapy, particularly for young folks, by empowering my clients to rewrite their own narrative and understand their neurological roots, to become the best version of themself, for themself, their relationships, and their future.

If you're reading this, you're probably struggling and hoping to connect with someone who truly gets it. Finding a great listener can be challenging for neurodiverse folks, LGBTQIA+ folks, and others with complex backgrounds and life stories. Because I know how important it is for my clients to feel heard and understood, I work hard to build a safe and secure context for them to explore all the different social and psychological systems of their lives. That trust and safety provides the foundation for deep and lasting change.

What type of Evanston mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Evanston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
