I am an LCSW trained in trauma focused therapies, including EMDR and somatic experiencing.
Often it takes "trying out" more than one therapist until you find the right match. I would be a good match for you if you question the need to "go back to normal" in the midst of of a pandemic and violent injustice. We may be a good fit if you want to explore self care practices to heal and maintain health during this trying time, you want to explore how trauma shows up in your life and begin to heal from it; you are exploring your own identities and want to work towards embodying the entirety of who you are; or you want to feel more connected to yourself, others, and your community.

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to suffering. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of agency in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, believing you are good enough as you are, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.

Living a fulfilling and enjoyable life is something many people strive for. Along the way, however, there can be obstacles that slow us down and perhaps even stop us completely. Throughout my 25+ years of experience in private practice and at Northwestern Medicine, I have seen therapy bring about real and lasting change. Key to that growth and change is the therapeutic relationship. The more we get to know and trust ourselves, the better our relationships with others will be.

In working with my clients, we explore what holds meaning, what patterns/habits work and no longer work in their life as well as who/what helps them create balance and motivation. When clients find that some of their reactions and emotional responses are no longer having the same effect, we work together to allow their authentic self to take initiative and risks as they engage in relationships with a more healthy, centered, and intentional stance. I value and welcome my clients’ spiritual journey and faith background and the variety of practices that aid in healing and restoring integration and connection in our work together.

I began my professional career as a lawyer.

However, working as a lawyer made me realize I wanted to help people on a more personal, emotional, and psychological level so they could be effective before they need a lawyer.
