I bring 30+ years of experience to my practice--along with humor, energy, and warmth. Let's work together to make the smart, necessary changes that you need to not just cope, but to live fully.

I teach people how to listen to themselves and what to listen for. Every problem, anxiety , or conflict is calling for a fresh perspective-- a way to see it from a new angle. Symptoms are the signals indicating that we need to take the time to notice, listen, and explore what we "hear." We can understand and connect with the unmet needs to which our symptoms are alerting us rather than merely silencing the the messenger symptom without getting the important message we need.

I specialize in working with individuals struggling to manage chronic illness, work/life balance, self-esteem, anxiety , and relationships.
Are you constantly comparing yourself to others around you? Not feeling good enough, smart enough, attractive enough? Do you find yourself frequently frustrated about where you are in your life? I work with clients who are feeling stuck, anxious, and are tired of living on a hamster wheel of habits that no longer feel authentic to the person they want to become. I recognize that sharing and processing life events can be incredibly challenging and vulnerable. I show up for you, helping you develop skills to navigate difficult and necessary conversations.

Feelings of anxiety and depression are signals. They are NOT your fault. They tell us about unresolved and repressed feelings originating from painful situations - past or present. They usually occur either in the work arena or in relationships or both. Unresolved events can block development and subsequently produce a sense of despair. I specialize in getting to the 'root' of issues; helping to resolve that which has not been adequately dealt with, thereby facilitating development to resume.

All of us -- women and men, young and old, poor, middle class and upscale folks, minorities and majorities -- have to deal with complexity. As a therapist I help heal hurts from the past, assist clients in managing present challenges, and work collaboratively to create more satisfying future lives. The people who see me for individual, couples and family therapy represent a culturally diverse group. Their difficulties range from anxiety and depression, to stress disorders, OCD/OCPD, relationship problems, employment issues, and bereavement. Many of these women and men report quick progress in better managing their personal, family, academic, and work lives.

My practice is focused on adults and young adults, presenting with anxiety and depression, relationship issues, and situational stress.
My approach to psychotherapy is supportive and exploratory. People find themselves in difficult situations and complex relationships and often need to change aspects about themselves when they discover repeating patterns. I enjoy the process of developing relationships with my patients, understanding their unique stories, and helping them to identify patterns in their life that may no longer be adaptive. I use a strength based approach, trying to focus on what resilience people bring to the table. I find that actively engaging people in a collaborative process is the best way to achieve lasting change.

My clinical areas of experience include: anxiety and anxiety -related disorders, depression and depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, addiction and substance use disorders, eating disorders, traumatic and ambiguous loss, and unresolved conflicts or stressors related to divorce, parenting issues, developmental challenges, life transitions or role loss.
I believe psychotherapy offers a growth-fostering relationship: one that deepens your understanding of yourself, generating a sense of agency and choice throughout your life. I offer a supportive, therapeutic relationship-one that facilitates understanding you, your feelings, your choices, your losses, and your goals-as integral to the essential work of leading a healthy, meaningful life. I find that people often enter therapy feeling anxious, depressed, isolated or alone, amidst traumatic or ambiguous losses, and when ways of coping have become more harmful than helpful. I work with adults, emerging through older age, to support a transformative process of growth and change.

My areas of specialty include: * Postpartum Disorders and Maternal Mental Health * Anxiety * Depression * Adolescence.
Starting therapy can be trying process, and often what's important is finding the right fit between a therapist and a client. Once therapy begins, it can be an incredible resource where an individual may regain a sense of balance and peace of mind, build more satisfying relationships, develop more effective communication, as well as find the sense of direction and meaning that allows one to thrive. I also work as a forensic expert in women’s reproductive mental health and consult with legal counsel on criminal cases that are relevant to an experience in the postpartum period, this includes murder, infanticide, neonatacide.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for an Evanston anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Evanston.
