I provide individual, couples and family therapy to people of all ages who are seeking help with a wide variety of difficulties.
I believe we have the potential to create a fulfilling life on every level. By engaging in the process of therapy, I have found that people are able to discover the courage and desire to change so they can seek a better, more complete way of being themselves, alone and in relationships. I approach each client as a unique individual and work to create a respectful and safe atmosphere where clients feel heard and their feelings validated. Through my active, caring and collaborative approach to psychotherapy, I hope to empower others to make positive changes in their lives and relationships.

But, think of making your first appointment with me as your first step in creating a better relationship with yourself and your life…decide that YOU matter enough to begin! .
Life today can be VERY tough to navigate, but can seem overwhelming when you constantly feel stressed out, discouraged, or simply "not enough." Or, maybe you didn’t get off to a good start in life and believe that your chances for something better are slim…or you feel so worn down by the challenges of painful emotions, chronic illness, or addiction--or more than one of these--that you wonder “Is this all there is?” Well, the good news is that your best life is waiting for you, and as a therapist it is my honor to support you in taking the steps to reclaim your dreams, heal your past, grow your strength, and build your future!

My clinical experience includes working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I have worked in various settings such as inpatient, residential centers, community mental health, and private practice. I graduated from Loyola University in 2009. It is important that clients have the freedom of self-expression and are not rushed through the therapeutic process. Working collaboratively, we will identify a framework that is validating and promotes growth. My approach is honest, empathetic, and relational in order to help clients gain self-awareness.

Collectively, we have many years of experience working with patients from adolescence onward in individual psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, couples therapy, family therapy, and group therapy.
While a person can feel better after a good talk with a friend or relative, for moderate or severe emotional distress, this relief is only temporary. Talking with a trained listener helps alleviate emotional distress for good. The doctors in our practice are trained to listen and interact in a way that helps you get to the very root of your emotional concerns.

Your healing can begin right now when you make the brave decision to choose a therapist who will listen deeply, seek to understand your feelings, and help you create a new and empowering story about who you truly are. That is my approach to therapy. My aim is to teach my clients how to identify old, limiting beliefs that interfere with their relationships, their sense of purpose, and inner peace. Together, we can work on healing the unhealthy relationship you have with yourself if you are willing to shed that old identity to embrace one that is whole, genuine, and resilient.

All of us develop patterns of behavior based on survival instincts from the moment we are born. Ideally, as we mature our survival skills would mature as well and that's often not the case. A behavior that was successful in the past can hurt us in the present and keep us repeating the same self limiting patterns over and over. Everything we do has elements of relationship. Professional, romantic, platonic, familial, athletic, and academic relationships make up our societal existence. By learning how to be in relationship with ourselves we learn how to be in relationship with others.
