About

I provide a gentle, encouraging environment to help clients work on relationship challenges & infidelity, eating disorders & obesity, as well as career & life transitions. I guide individuals through the dating process into healthy relationships. I have specialized clinical experience in helping people recover from addictions of all kinds (food, alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, codependency).
No matter how long you have struggled on your own, I can help you identify & remove obstacles so you can find relief and create a happier, more fulfilling life. I believe humor is important to relieve tension, break out of negative thinking and make the therapy process more enjoyable.
My education includes a B.A. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in English(2001), a Masters Degree in Education, also from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign(2004), and a M.A. in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology(2008). I look forward to talking with you soon.
