About

I work to help people gain awareness of why and how they have lost access to meaningful parts of themselves, find ways to remove blocks to emotional growth and move towards a life that feels more connected and alive. I attend to past and present circumstances, behaviors, feelings, thoughts, and the body. I am open, authentic, engaged, and gently challenging in my interactions with clients. As a Marriage & Family Therapist, I intend to support you in enhancing your relationships and offer guidance for healing and growth in any other domains of your life that you'd like to examine.
Through my training at the Family Institute at Northwestern University, I have adapted a treatment style that is both goal-oriented and strength based - allowing for a collaborative treatment that empowers my clients to participate in their own growth and healing.
My areas of clinical specialty include sex and sexuality, trauma recovery; and building intimacy and connection with conflictual couples/families. I also have expertise working with the issues startup co-founders, entrepreneurs, and other small business owners face while experiencing the immense pressure to build and sustain a company.
