I am passionate about working with individuals with developmental differences (ex: ASD, Intellectual Disability), comorbid mental health concerns (ex: anxiety), and related challenges. I strive to individualize treatment so that it best matches each patient’s unique strengths and needs and supports patients in reaching their therapy goals. Often, my work involves supporting patients and their families in increasing insight into reported areas of concern, building strengths, growing new skills, developing greater community connection and support, and managing stressors that arise as one navigates daily life.

Neuropsychology-based assessment services are available regarding a wide range of developmental concerns, including learning disabilities, developmental delay, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and intellectual disability, as well as related complex social-emotional concerns.
During this time of increased stress and grief, counseling is often a valuable source of support. Providing assistance to children, teens, and adults with special needs and their families is the focus of my practice. Beginning as a learning disabilities teacher, and then transitioning to clinical psychology, I have over 25 years of experience. My practice combines a solid foundation in traditional psychotherapy with specialized interventions for individuals with special needs. Whether seeking support for yourself or guidance for a struggling child, together we can help you find solutions.

Life is full of transitions. They can be extremely difficult. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed, discouraged and like nothing will improve. Transition can be even more overwhelming when it feels like you are going through it alone and don't have support. I utilize a client-centered, strengths based approach, and provide a compassionate and accepting environment.

Feeling lost? You’re not alone. Some people may find themselves in a life that may not be worth living. Some may find themselves so immersed in taking care of someone else that they forgot who they are. Others find themselves in a place where they are told that their life is just beginning, but they have no idea where to start. Let’s find YOU together. It can be difficult to organize and have a true understanding of ourselves. For some people, you may know how you’re feeling and even why you feel that way, but you don’t know how to make it better.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Illinois, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Illinois listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
