About

It is stressful to sit down with a stranger and work on solving your biggest problems, but a relaxed and non-hurried atmosphere helps. I'm a warm, engaging and compassionate therapist. I absolutely love my work, as I've been privileged to support so many people in their efforts to feel good again. I believe strongly in the resiliency of the human spirit; however, it is important that my clients take away real tools to manage life's stressors. I'm trained in the Brainspotting treatment method, a powerful and efficient therapy that helps improve symptoms of trauma and/or other neurophysiological challenges.
I'm a certified Perinatal Mental Health professional, experienced in infertility, pregnancy and infant loss and postpartum adjustment and mood disorders. However, I also work with women and men experiencing a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and life changes. Many people have been referred to me by former clients.
In addition, I enjoy good working relationships with many area OB/GYN physicians, psychiatrists, family practitioners and schools who frequently refer their patients/students to me. I have also served as a field instructor for graduate students from Loyola University Chicago and other area universities, but I believe we are all life-long learners.
