Safety, trust and encouragement are imperative ingredients to a successful therapeutic or coaching relationship. As a seasoned therapist and performance coach my ideal client is one who seeks a collaborative relationship and is eager to invest in greater self understanding and willingness to take action. Clients battling stress related issues that compromise performance in work, school, or intimate relationships are a good match. Transforming anxiety, despair and self doubt into courage, inspiration and confidence is my strength. I'm comfortable addressing thoughts that disempower or emotions that are frightening. I believe positivity and curiosity can trump pessimism and criticalness to fuel personal growth.

Therapy is an exciting experience of self-discovery! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I work with adults, individually or as couples. I use a bilateral approach, incorporating a Strength-based practice with a focus on the mind/body connection, in particular Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). I assist clients in noticing, when automatic processes are occurring & to alter their reaction to be more of a reflection.

An out-of-network Therapist in Chicago has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for a Chicago out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chicago. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chicago
