"As a therapist, I believe in the power of self-awareness in helping people overcome adversity. Trained in Systems Therapy at the Family Institute at Northwestern University, my orientation is to use relationships to strengthen our understanding of one another, and of ourselves. I value the humanistic experience most of all, and strive to learn as much as possible about one's past motivations and ways of coping. I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is the key ingredient in effecting change. I use compassion and acceptance as tools to help create space for that change."

"Getting help is part of being human. Plain and simple. I believe everybody can benefit from a friendly, non judgmental and validating space in therapy. I view each of my clients as unique and value taking time to understand the many influences in their lives and the voices inside of them that inform who they are. In my office clients explore the stories of their lives, and are encouraged to nourish the parts of themselves they love, and find strength to evolve away from what is no longer working. Through warmth and empathy I create an open canvas to explore new ways of being. "

"I use a strengths focused approach to therapy. Moving forward requires a look at what a person is already doing well in addition to the challenges in their lives. My approach includes insight oriented and cognitive techniques which I utilize in my practice. It takes a very strong person to admit they need help and to take the steps necessary to find a therapist who will be the best fit possible. In my view, therapy is teamwork and the therapist and client must work collaboratively for the best possible outcome of their therapy experience."

CBT is active, hands on, and emphasizes a problem-solving approach to moving beyond obstacles. Mindfulness practice involves observing thoughts, feelings, and sensations with non-judgmental awareness, which can lead to deeper understanding of ourselves and greater contentment.
