Much like the character Hamlet says to his friend in the play by William Shakespeare “there is more in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in our philosophy”. There is so much about life and living, loving and losing than we can possibly understand. Whatever philosophical ideas we hold, there is so much that remains unknowable. Because it resonates with my own respect for and curiosity about the mystery of being alive, my clinical practice is informed by existential thinking. Why is this happening? How can I survive? What does it mean? These are the questions underlying our reactions to and feelings about our lives.

You’ve been carrying the anxiety and pain for far too long. No one really knows what it's like to be you. It feels utterly lonely. But you are at the point, where you want to find hope again and see if there is a chance that it doesn’t have to be this way. You are navigating relationships with your intimate partner and friends, and experiencing difficult lonely feelings about your life, family, health, and career. Whether you have a relationship or are starting a new one, planning a family or maintaining one, struggling at college, battling chronic pain or IBS, or moving into the empty nest syndrome, there is so much to worry about.

To contact me, please email me via this site. I believe that every person has the right to heal, to be heard, and to grow. I approach therapy from a place of kindness and compassion, openness and curiosity. My work with clients begins from a strengths-based place, to ensure that you are seen and understood as a whole person, taking into account your inherent strengths as well as your areas for growth. I also believe that people are deeply impacted by the world around them and work with clients to identify and unpack oppressive forces in their lives.

I work with individual adults and couples. COUPLES – Please do not wait until your relationship is in crisis before you contact a therapist. The longer negative, repetitive patterns and cycles of conflict and arguments continue, the harder and longer it takes to heal. Harsh words cannot be taken back. You will save time and money by contacting a therapist sooner than later. INDIVIDUALS – If you are feeling lonely, disconnected and stuck, I can help you make positive life-long changes. My goal is for you to feel clear, confident and empowered to live life your way, not the way other people might want you to live. You get to choose.

Connection and intimacy are vital part of your survival, development and growth as a human being. My goal as your therapist is to cultivate a safe and non-judgmental space that allows you to explore, understand, and honor every part of who you are. By recognizing how each part of yourselves interact with one another, we can learn about its impact on your relationship and work toward addressing the pieces of your lives that just aren’t working for you anymore. By learning new ways of relating, we will lift barriers that are keeping you from reaching your goals and instead, create positive changes that last.

I believe that problems are best understood in the context of relationships - with loved ones, with intimate partners, and with oneself. Perhaps you are noticing room for improvement in one or in multiple relationships, or perhaps you have a strong desire for increased understanding of yourself and others. It takes a great deal of insight and strength to even begin this journey towards greater harmony. My hope as a clinician is to help foster within you a sense of renewed curiosity, compassion, and hope as you undertake this journey.

Thank you for visiting my psychology today page. I've been working with children, adults and couples for several years and through my experience I've developed beliefs about healthy development. 1.) Our experiences shape who we are and everyone deserves to be treated with patience, respect and dignity. We need a safe environment to open up and develop self-compassion. 2.) We need support and cannot work through our problems alone; all psychological problems are relationship problems and it is for this reason the therapeutic alliance is necessary. 3.) It takes intention to change patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.

"We all need somebody to lean on." Lean on Me by Bill Withers is a song that articulates one of the best things you can do when life is challenging. Reaching out to family, friends, and a kind professional for help will enable you to get support and make positive changes in your life. Asking for help can be a vulnerable and scary experience, but the results are often worth it. I am devoted to manifesting growth and stability with all my clients. I am an active, enthusiastic clinician who gives thoughtful feedback after listening carefully to the problem.

I am Licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in children, adolescent girls, families and woman. I have been working with families on Chicago's North Shore and surrounding areas, for almost two decades. Although my training emphasized an Adlerian approach to therapy, I have a broad range of experience with many therapeutic modalities and am able to tailor my practice to the needs of you or your family. I believe in treating the "whole-person," which means a one-size-fits-all approach will not work.

Have you found yourself struggling with your relationship with your body and food?

As human beings we all need support and guidance in our lives and deserve a sense of peace. Therapy can be a remarkable way to heal and live more authentically.

COVID-19 has affected all of us. The future feels uncertain. We worry if family and friends are safe and our job secure. We are socially isolated, days are monotonous, and we miss physical closeness and freedom. Millennials have moved back in with family and lost their independence and sense of identity. Generation Zs lose out on graduation, team sports, friends and jobs lined up after school. Individuals worry about elderly parents, job loss, and struggle to balance work and children at home while finding time alone to just breathe. Couples are experiencing too much togetherness and need communication skills more than ever.

With a down-to-earth, and empathic approach, I work with clients to create a relationship built on trust where clients can feel heard, understood, and truly known. Therapy is about helping you work through your own problems through exploring your past experiences, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. My goal is not to fix you, but rather to help you work through your struggles and create a more meaningful life. My practice focuses on couples and individual counseling. Clients frequently present with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family conflicts, grief, life transition concerns, and a multitude of other issues.

Space in which someone begins to let go of the person they think they should be in order to become who they truly are is sacred space. It can also be a very hard space, and one that can be difficult to navigate alone. This is where I come in. I believe you are the expert when it comes to your life, and that you have everything you need to live your best life. What is perceived as brokenness is often just disconnection with ourselves and with others. My expertise is deep listening coupled with insight that helps you first to connect with your genuine self, and then to make authentic, lasting, and meaningful connections with others.
