I am the Founder of Urban Balance, an insurance-friendly counseling practice with over 100 therapists on staff in eight locations in the Chicagoland area and one in St. Louis. I am a Past-President of the Illinois Counseling Association and blog for The Huffington Post and PsychCentral. I was selected by Crain's Chicago Business for their "40 Under 40" List in 2010. I have served as a psychological expert on national television and radio and have been featured in such publications as The Wallstreet Journal, US News and World Report and MTV.

I specialize in the treatment of adults, adolescents and couples dealing with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, addiction and relationship issues. I was awarded Distinguished Alumni of the Year in 2008 by the Masters of Counseling Psychology Program at Northwestern University.

Urban Balance is insurance friendly, has it's own billing department on site and views therapy as a positive and proactive part of routine healthcare. Our therapists seek to help clients gain balance in their personal and professional lives. Urban Balance also offers a free 20-minute consultation.
