Together we can explore what's happening in your life. As an insight-oriented, action-focused psychotherapist I offer an encouraging, nonjudgmental environment in which to resolve current issues, identify problematic patterns, and take necessary steps toward improvement. Whether it be the presence of life stressors, or long standing issues, my goal is to support your exploration of thoughts, feelings, and experiences, in order to gain peace of mind. As we establish a strong working relationship, you will experience the benefits of support, empathy, and empowerment, while simultaneously working to create fulfillment in your life. I work intuitively and creatively with you to strengthen relationships, implement effective coping strategies, change unhealthy patterns, and ultimately feel calm and self-assured.

More Info About My Practice

My office is located in Bucktown, in a discreet location with free convenient street parking and easily accessible by public transportation. I am a BCBS PPO provider, although my services are covered by other insurance providers as well. Please feel free to contact me with questions about my techniques, philosophies, and specializations. I am open to discussing how we can work effectively together.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to listen, to understand, and to offer perspectives you may not have considered. As a source of comfort, support, and encouragement, I can provide tools and education. Challenging, with warmth and a sense of humor, you will find my approach authentic and relatable. Ultimately, it is my job to help you improve yourself, your life, and/or your current situation.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

There are innumerable ways in which a person can benefit from therapy. I understand why one may be hesitant to begin, and for this reason I approach every person respectfully with an open attitude toward collaborating on all aspects of the therapy process. I view both therapist and client as equal, finding that we can work together to set the pace and tone of each session so that you are comfortable with the direction we are working.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

The most important factor in choosing a therapist is comfort in being with that person. I bring a unique array of knowledge and skills to the therapeutic relationship, but more important than that, I am down to earth. It is up to you to determine whether you feel at ease discussing your concerns with me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have to figure out if we are the right fit.
