I specialize in couples counseling, family counseling, counseling with men, and premarital counseling. I help clients make meaning of their struggles, articulate their desires, and collaborate to reach their goals. I normalize and interpret conflict in terms of differences, identity, connection, and power issues. Intimacy and anger, stress and time constraints, are often the focus of our work together. I tend to be fairly transparent and strengths-focused. I also specialize in the integration of spirituality and psychotherapy.

I view counseling and therapy as a conversation. It is my goal to help my clients identify and define what they value in life. Most negative emotions that we experience in life are due to frustrated efforts at achieving the things we value. Often we stand in the way of our own happiness due to unexamined expectations. I believe progress comes through increased awareness and understanding of one's core beliefs about self, others, and the world. I purpose to serve as a sounding board to this growth in awareness and understanding.

Approximately 50% of my clients have an addiction or are friends/family of an addicted individual. I am able to help you assess the addiction, understand how it is affecting you and your family, and help you develop a plan for recovery. If you are already in recovery, your counseling can further help you understand any underlying issues that may contribute to or drive the compulsions. This may include such things as anxiety, depression, life stressors, trauma, to name a few. I have a positive approach that focuses on strengths and success, building on those assets, more than pathology.

While the problems that bring couples in for therapy may seem daunting, perhaps even feeling insurmountable to some, my work builds on the notion that problems are given their greatest opportunity for resolution by cultivating safe, loving, and secure relational attachments.

The word psychotherapy comes from the ancient Greek word “psyche” and “therapeia”. Psyche means soul, and therapeia means healing. I look at psychotherapy as a process of soul healing. One may be facing a break down in relationships, a faith crisis, a sense of disorientation with nowhere to go, a life without meaning. It could be a loss of self worth. Or there may be old wounds, or wounds that continue to bleed that require healing. We can either run away, or stay helpless in such situations. Or we can start to listen to the deeper calling of soul and work towards healing, and towards Wholeness.

Daily life for some can be isolating and debilitating; taking the first step to ask for help requires courage. I deeply understand that coming to an office in Evanston to talk about life’s struggles can feel intimidating and even unwelcoming for some. As a strengths-based therapist and yoga teacher, I am interested in hearing stories from people who do not feel like they fit in, whether it is because they are trauma survivors, people with mental illness, people of color, queer folks, or people who have been historically marginalized. I understand that identifying as a trauma survivor can lead to additional marginalization.

To "know thyself" - to wake up to yourself, is the most worthy of quests. I work with mind, body, and spirit to bring you back to yourself. The body never lies. When we tune into the body we find our own truth, wisdom, and guidance. This happens when we calm down, relax, and pay attention. There are often emotions or experiences that have waited years to be acknowledged and expressed. It doesn't work to close the door on the past. Until we review, process, and open to healing we tend to re-capitulate the events in our past.

I’m guessing you’re here because you’re feeling disconnected or stuck in some way… As a therapist, I believe that so much of our health care system along with our capitalistic, consumerist society is deeply flawed. As a result, our bodies, spirit and minds are suffering; we are not machines meant to be tied down to a job for the mere purpose of paying bills until we die. To live a life of meaning, to feel fully alive and full of vitality does not come from subscribing to the old outdated formula and patterns that we’ve been spoon fed and prescribed. Living a life of passive submission is not a life well lived.
