As human beings, we will have situations arise in life that require exploration, understanding, and resolution. This could be anxiety, depression, grief & loss, identity, family conflict, life transitions, or trauma. This could also be systemic injustice and oppression. It is my belief that we seek to create balance between our struggles and the lives we desire. I strive to help folks identify their strengths and resiliency, using these traits to improve stress management, self-esteem, confidence and overall well-being. When we believe we can tackle life’s obstacles, we begin to face them directly and experience empowerment.

I recognize how difficult it can be to take the steps toward seeking out a therapist, regardless of the reason that brought you. Life can be challenging in many ways and can be difficult to navigate alone. I take great care in providing a safe environment for my clients to explore their lives and various obstacles in a nonjudgmental way. Building a trusting, therapeutic relationship is what I find most enjoyable about my work as a therapist.

Too often the problems and emotional pain that loom large in our lives is compounded by a lack of understanding of its origins or the discrepancy between our inner dialogue and the true reality. I believe that lasting change comes from working on these discrepancies and clearly defining our values and strengths in a safe environment that is free from judgement of any kind.

I believe therapy is about safety and empowerment. Unique challenges emerge in every stage of life. My clients know they have a safe space to explore difficult issues. I seek to empower my clients as they discover new coping skills and work toward growth and healing. When possible, I find that deepening family bonds reinforces social interaction and helps navigate complex relational boundaries. Working collaboratively with families in the therapy process can lead to new bridges of understanding in the home.

I understand that every client's personal journey is unique; therefore, my approach is tailored to fit the specific needs of each client.

My work is psychoanalytic, which means I attend to feelings/beliefs that emerge from one's lived experience/history and that interfere with living fully, creatively, and freely in the present. I believe that psychotherapy, at its best, is a deeply transforming experience that emerges within an intimate and private space in which you are listened to, understood, and responded to with intelligence and compassion.

During this time of uncertainty, experiences of isolation, loss, and being stifled by our environments can make it difficult to focus on and do daily tasks. Are these issues that you’re facing? Have you struggled to stay connected to others, or to be understood and supported by people in your life? Maybe you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed, whether it’s your relationship(s), your living environment, or your own feelings and behaviors. I work to meet people where they’re at and create an affirming space that supports those struggling with a variety of life stresses to make sense of these issues and find direction for moving forward.

It’s hard to put yourself out there…To allow yourself to be vulnerable…To really connect with others. When you do, you practically tie yourself up in knots replaying what you said – what you did. You make promises to yourself that somehow next time you’ll do things differently…that you’ll feel different….that you won’t be full of regret and shame. Regardless of whether you spend most of your time at school or work, Chicago can be a hard place to get your footing. Looking around you, everyone seems connected. Everyone seems confident. When will you stop second-guessing yourself?
