About

I am the owner and director of Cognitive Behavioral Associates of Chicago, a small group psychotherapy practice in the Andersonville / Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. We are a group of clinical and health psychologists, social workers, and therapists who specialize in anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, insomnia, stress, depression, creating healthy habits/lifestyle, and coping with chronic pain and other medical conditions. All of the therapists at CBA Chicago are passionate about providing evidence-based treatments. You can learn more about our work and treatment philosophy by visiting our website.
We use a variety of cognitive behavioral treatments including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion-Focused Therapy, and other mindfulness-based and positive psychology approaches. These are approaches that we are personally drawn to and that our clients tend to like. They are backed by science and can be fun and creative.
We work with individuals to create a very active therapy where you learn new skills and practice them to reduce symptoms and improve your quality of life. This work often includes identifying the things that make life personally meaningful and fulfilling. Therapy can be challenging, but also offers tremendous opportunity for growth and positive change.
