I am a queer-identified, kink-affirming therapist who partners with individuals to navigate a world that is often rooted in arbitrary and limiting rules. I am especially passionate about the self-actualization of folks in their sexuality, gender, neurodiversity, and relationships of any configuration. I believe that everyone deserves a space to reflect creatively on what makes their life sustainable and authentic.

When your family does not turn out the way you hoped or dreamed, you may be left with unresolved experiences and emotions. Whether you are struggling with infertility, pregnancy loss, postpartum blues, depression, anxiety, or are struggling to connect with your baby. From conception to graduation, these processes are often emotionally charged and can take a toll on your life. Therapy can often provide the space and support necessary to regroup, recover, and maintain well-being and health, both physical and mental.

I love working with individuals who are struggling to break free of old habits, patterns of behavior, or relationships that are no longer serving them. Often it takes getting to the "end of our rope" with things to find that we have the most motivation to change. Making changes can be really scary and anxiety provoking, even when we know what we've been doing up until this point isn't working. I like being that supportive partner that helps a client figure out what isn't working, what they might like to change, and how. I value moving at a client's pace, in their direction, and in pursuit of their own vision for their life.

I enjoy working with individuals and families from diverse backgrounds and of all ages. I have extensive experience helping children, adolescents, and adults navigate challenges related to ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, OCD, anxiety, depression, romantic and family relationships, stress, attachment, self-regulation, and adjustment to life changes.

My first goal in the therapeutic process is to create a trusting, safe and collaborative relationship. Through active exploration, it is my hope that you will uncover insight into thoughts, emotions and behavior that will empower and support you in transforming your life. I recognize the difficulty of developing and maintaining a sense of self that reflects a value of inner worth rather than outer societal or familial ideals and expectations. My intention is for you to become the person you really are and from that place, make choices leading you towards a greater sense of wholeness, peace and well-being.

Life is challenging and you may have worries, sadness, grief, a feeling of frustration in your work or a lack of connection to others. Therapy may seem daunting but it doesn't have to be. It is that very special place where you look at yourself with courage, compassion, and curiosity, without judgment or blame. It is the place to grow, change, to be seen and not alone. You already have the strengths and gifts to draw on, to deal with any challenge or concern, you just need to take the time and effort to do this for yourself.

Psychotherapy is a process, not an event, and healing and transformation is possible. Through creating a non-judgmental and compassionate therapeutic environment, I help foster insights into your distress, helping translate these discoveries into an improved quality of life. By relieving symptoms and addressing the source of problems, the process of therapy promotes well-being, meaning, and purpose. Psychotherapy is an effective method for promoting wellness and facilitating enduring positive change. Everyone has the innate desire and ability to lead authentic, meaningful, and purposeful lives. Psychotherapy is a proven path to uncover and access that potential.

Human beings' brains are wired for affiliation. Healthy relationships are crucial to our physical and mental health. Neuroscience is only now able to show the positive effects of mutual, evolving social and familial connections to other people. Often, people come to therapy to find out why they feel so stressed, or unfulfilled, or why their relationships are not all they would hope for. Is there an underlying trauma? Is there a genetic component? I believe that most people have their answers, they just need safe spaces where they can explore the issues. I will help you look for solutions from within yourself.

We'll work well together if you are a highly sensitive person, empathic, and perhaps struggling with regulating your energy. Do you often find yourself drained in relationships or with work and aren't sure how to get your power back? I love working with highly motivated people who are ready to make changes in their lives but have been struggling to do it on their own. You may feel stuck, depleted, and unsure of your direction. You may be searching for a greater purpose, and you may be looking for a therapist who can integrate spirituality, meditation, Reiki and other forms of energy work, Human Design, and past life regression.

Chances are, you have happened upon this website because you are looking for something to be different: a feeling, a relationship, a thought, a mood... Together, we will determine what needs to change by looking outside ourselves (exploring roles, rules, connection, boundaries, communication, and support) and by looking within ouselves (exploring thoughts, feelings, coping skills, internal dialogue, and how we've made meaning out of different experiences). Through the process of learning, accepting and changing, something inherently will be different...and you will feel different.

What type of Skokie 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 Skokie?
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.
