Providing therapy for Chicago adolescents and adults.
“There is no better expert on yourself than you, but everyone struggles at times to thrive and live as their best self. That’s where I come in. I help people navigate both personal and professional challenges, as well as finding unique paths for living a meaningful life. I can help you, too.
“My style is integrative and draws on my training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, ACT, mindfulness, coaching, and brief solution-focused therapy. Change takes time, but therapy doesn’t have to be a long-term endeavor. We will work together to create a therapy plan that addresses your needs, on a clear timeline. With a focus on compassionate communication and deepening self-awareness, you can move toward a life that serves you best.
“Therapy has the power to transform lives — I’ve seen this happen for my clients and I’ve experienced it myself. Therapy helped me to overcome and manage difficulties in my own life, inspiring me to help others — first as an educator, and now as a psychotherapist. When we work together, I aim to create a non-judgmental space where you can be your most authentic self. Whoever you are and wherever you’re coming from, your problems matter and you deserve a place to be fully heard and seen.”
