May 2024 Accepting New Patients / Psychotherapy is a highly individualized practice that can assist with a broad set of life problems. Each session carries the potential for change and growth. In my practice I strive to create deeply personal and meaningful experiences. I believe we best accomplish this by developing a mutual understanding of the concerns that have brought you to therapy, and then embarking on a collaborative process towards addressing your goals for treatment. I enjoy and welcome working with people from diverse backgrounds on a wide range of issues.
I am a clinical associate faculty and an advanced candidate at the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis. I earned my masters degree at the University of Chicago and worked for over 10 years as a community social worker in the psychiatry department at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Accepting new patients Illinois and Michigan. Telehealth only.

"
I think and work psychodynamically. This means that I believe at the heart of most difficulties are long-standing unrecognized patterns of perception and behavior which interfere with the successful enjoyment of life. In other words, you feel stuck and your solutions aren't working. Our job is to help you identify these barriers so you can come up with new ways of understanding yourself.
