About

EMAIL IS THE FASTEST WAY TO REACH ME! If you are new to therapy, struggling with current life stresses, have unresolved issues in your past or simply want to dive further into your capacity for self awareness, please reach out for support! Together we can structure sessions to address what may be preventing you from being your best self. Whether your progress needs to include improved relationships, increased motivation, stronger sense of self-worth, greater career or home success, a reduction of painful emotions or unwanted behaviors; I will strive to help you learn to relate to yourself & others in new, often healthier ways
My goal as your therapist is to help you reach a greater understanding and acceptance of yourself. Working to heal from painful experiences to find effective ways of coping with stress can be a challenge- I'd like to walk with you on this journey and will do so in a compassionate, and non judgmental way. You deserve good things! You deserve to be happy!
With 2 decades of work in Chicago, San Francisco and Iowa, I have experience with many varied issues. Substance use & abuse, sexual assault & ongoing violence, homelessness and poverty related trauma. I have a strong understanding of relocation & subsequent culture shock. In addition, I have extensive work within the LGBTQ+ community- I AM an ally!
