Providing therapy for Evanston adults, children and adolescents
“I believe change in therapy, much like the whole of life, is a relational process. We exist in relation to the world and the world exists in relation to us. Within this process, we continually make meaning of our experience. Thus, in therapy I approach with a stance of empathy and curiosity as I get to know the world through the eyes of another. I seek to honor client experiences by holding space for them, listening with deep presence, and offering patience as I join clients in their process, wherever that may lead. Together, through choice, authenticity,
empowerment and self-discovery, we can hopefully find relief in the suffering life presents. At times, I incorporate ACT-based techniques as well. While I have had the pleasure of working with a range of populations, I particularly enjoy working with college students for whom loneliness, adverse life experiences, immigrant experiences, or trauma is an area of focus.”
