I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist at Lifespan Counseling and Psychological Services, a group practice offering services to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in downtown Oak Park, IL. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, and self-injury, with a particular focus on adolescents and young adults. In my treatment of complex issues, I provide both individual and family therapy and value collaborating with other healthcare providers for multidisciplinary care. I work from an interpersonal and cognitive-behavioral orientation, utilizing symptom-focused interventions and interpersonal relationships as a primary focus of change.

I have extensive experience treating adolescents, adults, and families as well as conducting group therapy and psychological testing. My additional specialty areas include: adolescent and women's identity development, experiential therapy, childhood trauma and abuse, and life transitions.

Prior to my work at LifeSpan Counseling, I worked at Arabella House, a residential treatment home for women in recovery from eating disorders. Our group practice is ideal for clients that have family members or partners that need to be seen by other therapists in addition to their own treatment.
