Providing therapy for Evanston individuals and couples.
"I approach therapy from an existential worldview with a psychodynamic approach to help clients better understand their distress. I tailor therapeutic interventions to the specific needs of each client with the goal of empowering my clients to make meaningful decisions regarding their wellbeing and safety. Therapy is often difficult, and I work to create a safe space for each client to allow for authenticity and genuineness."
Multicultural concerns, college student mental health, religion/spirituality, trauma, personality disorders, sexuality, LGBTQ*, relationship issues, psychological assessment and testing
