I believe that empathy and rapport are paramount. We will complete a thorough evaluation to make sure that nothing is overlooked and then use a systematic tested program to get you from where you are to where you want to be!

Many of my clients have never sought therapy before, making them initially hesitant. After just one visit, though, many of them feel at ease in my office.

Therapy has helped my clients achieve life-altering changes. I keep up-to-date with advances in the field of psychotherapy, and offer feedback that is nonjudgmental, respectful, and honest. I give my clients practical skills and tools, and help them reach their goals with manageable solutions.

My office is in Cary, Illinois, near Algonquin and Crystal Lake. I am affiliated with all major insurance plans, and have been in practice since 1976.

I offer appointments during the day, in evenings, and on short notice. I have a no-wait policy, which means you'll never wait more than 10 minutes for your appointment.

For me, peace of mind isn't just a slogan, but a promise! We work hard to ensure your peace of mind by working with your insurance company to ensure you know your coverage. Our staff is so careful with its communications regarding insurance benefits that as long as you make the right co-payment and your deductible is paid, you will never receive an unexpected bill from us, regardless of what your insurance company pays.

That's true peace of mind, and this is a promise you won't get anywhere else.
