Therapy is a process of self discovery that enables you to recognize unhealthy patterns of behavior and learn effective coping strategies for optimal health and well-being. I provide a safe environment for psychotherapy through a warm, open communication style. I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative undertaking between patient and therapist; that listening, understanding and respecting each patient's unique story is necessary for optimal treatment.

The weight of your daily responsibilities and tasks can be overbearing. You may feel as if you have no control and fear is starting to set in. At times your past comes to haunt you and guilt and shame can rear its ugly head. Perhaps you find yourself in limbo, trapped between two cultures. Your family riddles your waking life with obligations and expectations from the motherland. And yet your innermost desires cater more to a modern “American life”. Living between two worlds can at times be a difficult balancing act and you feel as if you do not fit anywhere.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Chicago. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder , whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego.
