I aim to provide an empathic space where you can feel safe and I specialize in the following areas of treatment: eating disorders, disordered eating and body image concerns, self-esteem issues, relationship concerns, trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, women's issues , undergraduate/graduate school mental health, life transitions, and stress management.
Have you found yourself struggling with your relationship with your body and food? Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, sadness, self-doubt, or struggling to heal from painful past experiences? Perhaps you even desire more connection with others in your life, but find it difficult to show your authentic self out of fear that you may not be “enough.” If so, know that your experiences matter and that it is possible to live a life that feels meaningful to you. 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.

), sexual abuse, women's issues (infertility, unhealthy relationship patterns, poor self-image, postpartum issues, etc.
I know that starting this process can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Using warmth, empathy, direct feedback and skill building I can help you more fully understand yourself and your relationships and therefore feel empowered to start living the life you want to live. While it is important to minimize daily struggles that get in the way of being fully present in your life and relationships, I firmly believe that healing comes from exploring how our past experiences have affected the ways in which we interpret and interact with our world in the present.

I work with individuals who present with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, college/grad student mental health, life transitions, high functioning autism, infertility and women's issues .
Feeling overwhelmed and run down? Looking for a space to help sort through stressors and finally make a change? Unsure of what to do next or how to make a meaningful change? People often enter therapy feeling anxious, depressed, confused, or unsure of how to deal with a change or loss. Therapy can be a place to explore feelings that are too hard to share with others. I believe therapy offers a safe environment to express yourself freely, deepen your understanding of yourself, and make positive long-lasting changes in your life. Clients enjoy having a space that is dedicated just to them to process their emotions.

Life is full of changes, and sometimes navigating those changes can be overwhelming and we feel "stuck." At those times, talking through concerns in a safe, trusting environment can help us regain balance and perspective. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit, and I strive to be compassionate, curious and collaborative as I help people adjust to changing circumstances, explore their feelings, and engage in mindful decision-making and planning for the future.

You’ve always been the person who made sure those around you felt good, even when that’s meant putting your needs on the back burner to take one for the team. It’s never been easy but to you it’s been worth it and you’ve been good at it. Yet, lately it isn’t working out that well any more. The anxiety has been constant and you're more irritable. You’re angry with yourself and sad. Hell, if you’re honest, you’re feeling a bit resentful towards others too. Enter the guilt. You feel horrible for being mean to your parents, partner, kids, friends. You wonder, "What is going on with me?!"

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.

You feel stuck. This isn’t what you expected, what you thought your life would look like. This is supposed to be the best time of your life! You’re overwhelmed by responsibilities and stress, so you avoid and procrastinate, which only makes things worse. Binging Netflix, napping, and scrolling on your phone are not solving your problems, but you don't know what else to do. Everything just seems too hard- starting a task, meeting new people, exercising... Everyone else seems like they’ve got it figured out. You ask yourself, "What am I doing wrong? Am I not enough?” I understand that feeling of "not enough" and I am here to help!

When considering what my ideal client looks like, I find I can be the most helpful to someone who is curious about themselves and what makes them tick. They see a future for themself but are having trouble figuring out how to get there. They may come with the odds stacked against them due to being a part of a marginalized community or plagued with depression, anxiety, trauma, and/or substance abuse. Maybe they feel stuck, confused, or uncertain. That's where I come in.

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.
