About

I believe in the strength within every individual to achieve clarity and change. I believe in the ability within every couple and family to achieve authentic bonds, effective communication, and joy. Nurturing these inner and relational strengths is essential in my work, so as to help my clients remove constraints in their lives. I mainly work with young professionals and students, as well as young couples and families. I also work with individuals, families, and even coworkers and friends of all ages.
My background in family systems ensures a holistic, integrative, and relational approach to problems. I take continual feedback very seriously, and collaborate fully with my clients in determining the goals and process of our work. Some of the areas I have addressed include: anxiety, depression, premarital counseling, communication problems, conflict, career difficulties, and parenting.
I also work with co-founders, entrepreneurs, and coworkers through www.AmityChicago.com. Entrepreneurship is admirable, but can also be incredibly difficult. The pressure and workload can be overwhelming. I help explore these relationships on a business and interpersonal level, to build trust, communication and growth.
