If you are grappling with the political misery of our moment, experiencing tensions around sexuality or gender, struggling with acute psychological issues (such as seeing or hearing what others don't perceive, or chronic suicidal ideation ), or other personal, political, or identity issues, then I invite you to schedule a free consultation session with me.
I enjoy working with people as a guide to the maps of ourselves-- our identities, histories, relationships, politics, traumas, sexualities, all the parts that make up our broken wholes. As a queer person, I tend to work with other people exploring and expanding their sexualities and gender identities. As someone involved in radical politics, I offer validation and therapeutic solidarity to abolitionists and activists across the spectrum of liberation movements. And as a person with mental illness myself, I offer a dignified and person-centered approach to caring for our most sensitive personal issues and life challenges.

My ideal client is ready for change. They are open to creative ideas and new ways of thinking about themselves and the world. They are equal collaborators and partners with me on their journey. They are willing to stay curious when we meet challenges on our journey together. They are also willing to laugh with me and find joy in the process of becoming. I often work with teachers, advocates, performance artists (above and below line), visual artists, and folks navigating identity issues. Religion, race, ability, and gender are often the foundations of my identity work. I provide custom workshops for groups as well.

Life is too short to spend so much time hating ourselves, staying in hurtful relationships, letting trauma control us, being anxious/ depressed, fighting with our partner(s), and not living our truest self. I believe therapy can help you work through emotional pain, find purpose, develop better relationships with yourself and others, and make important life changes. I know that the path to healing can be confusing and scary at times and we all experience suffering in completely unique ways. I am here to help.

My ideal client is someone who has a foundation of wellness and is looking to bridge the chasm between where they are and where they would like to be. They have self-awareness, motivation, and a support system to aid them in their journey. They are looking to learn and implement sustainable tools, practices, and habits that will embody their authentic truth and enhance their lives as a whole. They are curious and open about alternative and holistic methods of healing. They are willing to lean into fear of walking the unknown path of internal alchemy and evolution, knowing they are the ultimately the one that can heal themselves.

I became drawn to the work of therapy after many years of working in social justice movements, and seeing how relationships hold the power and potential to change the world. I particularly enjoy working with people who use drugs, queer and trans folks, and people doing social movement work from a harm reduction and trauma-informed perspective. As a therapist, I believe you have the tools and skills necessary to heal yourself, and our work in therapy is to uncover them together. I'm interested in the intersections of healing and liberation, and am excited to explore with you how your own healing contributes to a liberated future.

Each person I have the honor of coming into contact with allows me into their life in a unique way that I value beyond anything else. I think that underneath everything, we are all wishing to be Heard and Seen for whom we perceive our truest Self to be. That is why I strive to work with clients in a way that creates space for exploring the lens through which they view their sense of Self and their experiences. For this reason, I work collaboratively to set goals only after I have gained a greater understanding of how emotions hold unique meaning to you.

If you've found yourself here on this page, that tells me you are ready to do what it takes to survive. You are the expert on your life. I'm here to listen and bear witness to your story. Seeking help makes you brave, period. None of us can do this alone and we shouldn't have to. If you are queer, I've got you. If you are trans or gender non-conforming, I see you. If you are a Spanish-speaker, I would love to accompany you. I use a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach, which means we move at your speed. You are the one who decides what you need to feel safe. It's my job to respect that.

I believe that healing from mental illness is a process that takes time, patience, and compassion for yourself. My approach to therapy is that as a client, you should be provided space to guide the work, fostering self-empowerment, identity development, and discovering what will work for you. My goal is to create a partnership with my clients while bringing in my knowledge about psychological care. Currently, I am providing virtual sessions or in person sessions at our Burr Rudge office, and I am accepting clients across the lifespan for trauma disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, and/or preventive care.

Living in a city as big as Chicago offers many opportunities yet it can sometimes feel overwhelming, lonely, and even isolating. Are you hiding certain pieces of yourself from your friends or family to avoid conflict or to fit in? You might feel like no one knows the real you. You’ve noticed a shift in how you deal with stress. Maybe it’s coming out as increased drinking, binging or restricting food, or turning to other coping behaviors. Or maybe you’re in recovery but other parts of your life continue to feel unmanageable which feels frustrating. You no longer need to feel trapped. Change is possible and hope can be found.

[PLEASE NOTE: I am not currently accepting new clients.] As a queer nonbinary/transgender woman and a survivor, I know how hard it can be to seek desperately needed help, only to be made unwelcome by the very professionals we trust to provide that help. I always strive to meet my clients with openness, respect, and compassion. I believe that therapy should provide a safer space to explore your values and strengths, gain insight into your struggles, and learn new skills for healing, transformation, and liberation.

My goal is always to give my clients the opportunity to feel seen, heard and supported. I am non-judgmental, caring and somewhat goofy. I have worked in a variety of settings around grief/loss, identity development, trauma/abuse, anxiety, depression and disability concerns. I have training and experience in trauma-informed play therapy, and I love incorporating expressive arts into my practice. My approach is grounded in attachment-theory, narrative therapy, family-systems theory and anti-oppressive practice.

Are you are feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, lonely, angry, confused or just plain curious about yourself, your feelings or why you do the things you do? You owe it to yourself to talk to a trained mental health professional. Knowledge is power, but self- knowledge is more powerful! As a psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential in order to lead a life that is worth celebrating.

I am a queer, non-binary, trans therapist who believes each of us deserves at least one safe space to learn about and engage with our full selves. Therapy can be helpful as you navigate life’s everyday stressors, a difficult part of your history, past or ongoing trauma, or any feelings or circumstances that cause you pain or suffering. Therapy can also help you learn self-trust, build loving relationships, find ease in your mind and body, and move towards a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling.

Experiencing unexplained sources of anxiety, and not understanding out own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be really scary. Not being able to understand or effectively communicate with your child can be even scarier. If you are an overwhelmed parent of a child or adolescent who is experiencing difficulties such as anxiety, depression, anger, explosive emotion, isolation, self-harm, or identity confusion, or you yourself are struggling to understand your own thoughts, feelings, or sexual/gender identity, I may be the right fit for you.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Illinois, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Illinois listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
