I provide individual and group therapy to help both women and men heal from the trauma of sexual betrayal, sexual compulsive behaviors, and intimacy wounds.
I believe that each of us has a space between our hurting and healing. That space is unique to us, and in that space we each learn to love, understand, and embrace ourselves. We will explore this space together, without judgement. You will build empowerment skills to trust and love yourself. I will provide a safe space to explore, possibly discover, this side of yourself for the first time. In my practice I use an evidenced based attachment therapy, touching on the relational bonds we have developed throughout our lives.

I also enjoy working with women experiencing perinatal/postpartum anxiety and depression, parenting challenges, health conditions, and life transitions.
I work together with my clients on what is meaningful to them and honor the uniqueness of each person's concerns without judgment. I believe the more someone feels accepted for who they are, the more they are able to focus on their strengths and initiate change. Whether you are struggling with life transitions, healing past traumas, trying to improve your relationship or looking for parent guidance, I work hard to provide a safe space for you to reach your goals. I am versed in many evidenced-based practices: play therapy, DBT, CBT, mindfulness, ACT, and tailor therapy around your goals and needs.

I specialize in the treatment of children, adolescents and women dealing with depression, anxiety, social skills deficits, stress management, infertility and pregnancy loss.
Each and every person is born with unique strengths and vast potential to achieve. Oftentimes, though, life's challenges get in the way. It may be external stressors, traumatic experiences or our own dysfunctional thoughts and patterns of behavior that make it difficult to live a satisfying and fulfilling life. Entering into a therapeutic relationship of acceptance and trust can serve as a turning point for achieving growth and change.

My practice focuses on women and couples.
It's a privilege to assist individuals and couples who want to make their lives better. I love my work, even more than when I received my initial social work degree. Returning to school later to get my doctorate and teach, I always maintained a private practice. In a nutshell, my philosophy is that I partner with my clients to figure out what they can do to improve their relationships and sense of well-being. Though I have a special interest in infertility and incest survivorship, I work with individuals and couples who struggle with any number of life challenges.

I see therapy as an opportunity for fostering personal growth and achieving emotional maturity. We all face challenges and struggles at various points in our lives. Failure to overcome these challenges can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression and may impact one's relationship with family and friends. While we can't change the past, therapy can help uncover long-standing patterns and behaviors that can get in the way of fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others. I will help you understand the problems you are facing and find meaning and solutions that work best for you.

When I begin to work with a new client, my goal is to understand each client and see his or her strengths, abilities, and positive qualities. Very often new clients, especially children or teens, are so used to thinking or hearing about their problems that they themselves seem to forget their own positive traits and attributes. I really enjoy helping foster resiliency among my clients, helping them recognize their capacities to cope, heal, and move beyond feeling stuck or powerless. My approach is very effective with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, low self esteem, and feeling overwhelmed in life.

Depression, anxiety, addictive and compulsive behaviors, relationship conflicts, loneliness, life changes, indecision, performance issues, impulsivity, stress and frustration...We all struggle with something; it is part of the human condition. At times, it is more than we can deal with and manage on our own. I strive to create a comfortable environment for my clients, as we work together to understand what is troubling you and identify the steps you may take toward realizing the life you envision.

I have provided behavioral healthcare services across the lifespan and have worked on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, bipolar disorder, immigration and acculturation issues, LGBTQIA+ and other marginalized communities, burnout, job stress, trauma, substance abuse, eating disorder, ADHD, ODD, relationship problems, and women 's issues.
My ideal client is someone looking for a therapist who is going to partner with them for change - not just give advice and "chit chat" for an hour. I understand that clients come to me feeling "stuck" and often "hopeless." I believe that by carefully assessing your presenting problems, identifying barriers to success and helping you devise a concrete and realistic plan of action, I can help you get on the road to recovery. My clients come from all walks of life but I am especially passionate about working with immigrant and minority groups and am passionate about social justice and equality in behavioral healthcare.

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.
