About

Are you feeling sad, anxious or overwhelmed? Are you experiencing relationship problems or feeling lonely? Asking for help is a courageous thing to do. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I offer a thoughtful, compassionate, and collaborative approach to dealing with life's difficulties. Together we can find solutions that will make you feel better as soon as possible. I can help you develop new coping strategies and a deeper understanding of your needs. I am committed to helping you use your strengths to grow personally and in your relationships with others. **Unfortunately, I am not able to accept new clients at this time.*
I have training in psychodynamic and cognitive/behavioral therapies and tailor treatment to your unique needs and situation. I have experience treating a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, coping with illness, self-esteem, relationships, career, and work/life balance. I also offer relationship counseling for couples.
My education includes a bachelor's from Penn State University and a doctorate from Northwestern University. I completed my clinical internship at the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center and served over 5 years as a Staff Psychologist in their PTSD clinic. I am currently a faculty member at Northwestern University.
