I have a wealth of experience with diverse ages of children, teens, adults, and seniors .
Life can be an unexpected wave in the water that makes you feel unsteady, or it can be a giant wave that overwhelms you, and it keeps coming, and it is hard to regain your sense of balance. But when a helping hand reaches out, it can help you to find your strength and balance. Whether it feels like a big or small wave, I can be that support and guidance so when the waves come, you can brace them and keep going. I believe in providing empathetic care and guidance through a collaborative therapeutic relationship by navigating the unique experiences that influence each client’s life.

Choosing to talk to a professional is a big decision. You may have been thinking about it for months or even years. Let me put your mind at ease about what you'll find if you choose to contact me and come for a session. You'll find someone warm and welcoming who will sit down and have a conversation with you. I will ask about what's been going on and you can tell me what's been troubling you. I will help you to think about possible explanations and solutions in a way you probably haven't thought of before.

I enjoy working with families and individuals on relationship, parenting and family issues by developing an open and collaborative relationship with clients. It is my belief that we all can feel frustrated at times and seeking help in therapy is a positive choice toward managing our stress better and ultimately improving our health. I use a combination of approaches including family systems theory, mindfulness practice, positive psychology and, when appropriate, humor to help coach clients to begin to observe the patterns of behavior that are challenging them and make thoughtful choices about what they would like to change.

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to suffering. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of agency in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, believing you are good enough as you are, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.

As a therapist for over twenty-five years, I've learned that people are often unaware of how their current issues are connected to experiences and feelings encountered earlier in their lives. I work with patients to help them identify and explore repeating patterns in their lives and how these patterns can be evaluated and changed to improve personal and professional outcomes. My patients have found that therapy is a valuable experience and together we make the process productive and fulfilling.

Clients come to therapy wanting to make change in their lives and as challenging as it can be, clients who do well with me engage in fearless personal exploration using curiosity to drive their progress towards their preferred future. Clients who are interested in a holistic approach to mental health including sleep and nutrition and an openness to multiple viewpoints of healing and health will be engaged with my style. I also believe that clients don't want to be in therapy forever, nor should they be, so I aim to provide clients with firm internal processes and awareness they can use throughout the lifespan.

What type of Wilmette 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Wilmette?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
