It takes courage to seek out professional help. This may be your first time starting therapy or you are ready to continue the process after a new life challenge has come up. I strongly believe that you already have the inner resources you need to feel better, but may need assistance accessing these resources in a healthy way. Our work together will be about finding out what blocks you from feeling more empowered and alive. By learning new ways to be with difficult thoughts and experiences, it will be easier to meet the challenges and change that life inevitable brings.

My approach to therapy is grounded in relational, body-centered, trauma-informed, and anti-oppression frameworks and practices. I believe deeply that people are the experts of their own experience and work to create a space that honors all of who we are. I bring an understanding of the impact of oppression and violence on our lives and the communities we are a part of. I see therapy as a process that is active, experiential, and collaborative. In our work together, I integrate mind-body awareness and value the big shifts, small moments, and non-linear paths that often characterize both therapy and healing.

I am passionate about working with women identified individuals who may be struggling with anxiety, stress, depression etc. I work best with individuals who are motivated to make positive changes in their lives but are feeling "stuck". Using a gentle and collaborative approach, we will find ways to move past these road blocks and get you back to living a more meaningful and fulfilling life. My role is to walk alongside you as we discover more workable solutions. We may also explore how your past experiences, current thought patterns, relationship to your internal experiences, and cultural context influence how you are feeling.

The longer I practice as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, the more my work has come to focus on empowerment. Sometimes people and systems hold us back, sometimes we hold ourselves back, and far too often we sell ourselves short. I can help you navigate these problems as you work toward becoming the best version of yourself. Everyone’s journey and their needs in psychotherapy are different and I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. However, I generally view the goal of psychotherapy as getting relief from your most pressing problems while developing the insights and skills to help you manage long after therapy has ended.

I help people with a critical inner voice develop acceptance and compassion for themselves. My specialities include trauma, anxiety, depression, codependency, finding life/work balance, and providing LGBTQ+ affirming services. I've worked with many folks who grew up with alcoholism or substance abuse in the home, parents who fought often, and those who felt like they had to walk on egg shells. I've also worked with folks who have family members with addiction, those who identify as people pleasers, and those struggling to have fulfilling relationships. I'm especially passionate about helping other helpers, activists, and educators.

All of us struggle at different times in our life. We often feel stuck in our current state or situation and wonder if this is how life has to be. Whether you are facing a conflict that seems irresolvable, are searching for more meaning in life, or want to heal past wounds to feel a deeper sense of peace, making the decision to seek help takes courage. My belief is that we all have the power to limit the chaos of our mind through developing a strong and loving connection to ourselves.

Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

Square pegs and round holes; We spend a large portion of our lives wondering who we are and where we are headed. Trying to reconcile who we believe we are and what others want us to be. We experience shame about our identities and what we enjoy. Finding ourselves trying to fit ourselves into the outer expectations, only to find we feel less connected, less clear and less deserving. This is the human experience. We share it. You deserve a therapist that connects to, sees, hears, respects and appreciates you as your authentic self.

I work with people who are experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness and anger. They are in unfulfilling relationships or Have difficulty making relationships. The situations they find themselves in can be of short or long duration. Whether from external sources or more internally driven, helping them express their feelings and connecting them to their source allows individuals to bring more objectivity to their perspective. From this vantage point comes the ability to create new approaches to viewing themselves and situations. When helpful I give very concrete practical advice. From this comes change.

Out of Network Therapists
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
