Have you ever felt like you could do more, achieve more, be “better” in some way but you’re not quite sure how? Like something is holding you back and if you could just unlock the key to whatever it is, you could level up your life? Long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions may hold you back from experiencing a more fulfilling, more meaningful life - we can change that!
My special areas of focus include Anxiety, Depression, Life transitions (grief and loss, marriage and divorce), Women's health issues, and Mindfulness coaching.
Licensed in Illinois, and via PSYPACT. Offering in-person sessions in Chicago. and telehealth in Illinois and to PSYPACT states (see map: psypact.org/mpage/psypactmap)

Therapy begins with an initial consult and mapping of where I think we can go together on your journey. This typically looks like 4-15 weeks of weekly, twice-weekly or biweekly sessions. We may venture out into the real world together if that is the best medicine for your particular challenge. We will discuss what continued therapy may look like throughout the process.

I utilize mindfulness in therapy and coaching because it is a powerful mechanism for change across all sorts of diagnoses and problems. Regular mindfulness practice can open up ideas, possibilities, and directions you have never thought possible. Having your own practice can guide you through your stuckness, speak directly to your desires and move you forward into the life you seek.
