When junk food, Netflix binges, and a long cry aren’t quite enough to combat whatever has you feeling down or anxious, then perhaps it’s time to explore therapy. There is nothing quite as fulfilling as discovering the best version of yourself, and I’d be honored to help you find it!

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.

Whether you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, confused, frustrated, discouraged, disappointed, lost, anxious, sad or angry, you are not alone. Most of us experience those feelings at some point in our lives. We care about the people we serve, and we believe every person is individual, authentic, and unique. We use evidence-based practice (EBP) methods for mental health to help children, pre-teens, teenagers, adults, couples, and families to live their best lives. We understand that therapy can seem scary and intimidating, though we know that finding the support you need is the key to starting the self- healing process.

Does your anxiety take over at the worst possible moments of your day? Do you feel like you try harder and harder to change unhelpful habits but don’t seem to follow through on? Getting stuck in this cycle is exhausting, feels shameful, and depleting. What if you were to try different and not harder? My goal is to help people manage difficult experiences before it leads them to flake on friends, use substances, or have conflict in relationships. I work with adults and young adults to empower themselves to deal with life on life's terms.

Sometimes people aren't sure what to work on in therapy. That's okay! We will work collaboratively to identify core concerns, and decide together how to address them. Some issues I've helped people work through include depression, grief, pregnancy loss, life transitions, creative blocks, self-esteem, disempowerment, and spiritual alienation. My approach is insight oriented and relational, and while I am an art therapist, my work is not always art-based. However, as an artist, I've found that my understanding of the creative process illuminates many life situations that benefit from creative problem-solving.

I believe therapy takes on many forms and is not a cookie-cutter process. That is the sort of approach I take with individuals who took the courageous step toward therapy for their healing journey. I believe that therapy should be a collaborative and therapeutic space for you and your goals. You know yourself and your life more than I do, so I value hearing your story and providing you with support and tools to get you where you want to be. To better tailor to those goals, I focus on an integrative approach of using a systems, strengths-based, or client-centered approach to therapy

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.

It takes courage to go to therapy, especially when you feel stuck. That is why I appreciate the importance of a safe, nurturing and non-judgemental environment. There you can explore who you are, what is important to you and to repair what is keeping you from moving forward, whether it is depression/anxiety, relationship issues or an eating disorder. Once you have self-awareness, strategies and support, you will be able to make better choices and be the person you want to be.

"Without a struggle, there can be no progress." ~ F. Douglass. It takes courage and strength for people to admit they are going through more than they can handle. If you are going through something difficult, you don't have to go through it alone. Therapy is a space where it's safe to share and reflect upon thoughts, feelings and challenges. My job as a therapist is to ensure my clients feel understood and learn to manage challenges that may come up in life. I am here to support you.

Are you worried that a painful experience is negatively influencing the way you live or how you connect with others? Do you have trouble relaxing? Do you look just fine on the outside and struggle on the inside. Do you keep wondering why you need help, when you’re so self sufficient in other areas. Are you returning to therapy, after a break and see other areas that you want to address? Are you exhausted? Is the traumatic impact of racism creating a different level of anxiety, anger and overwhelmed? We can help you pause, breathe & create a plan to live in the ways you’ve been wanting to. You’re closer than you think!

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.
