My Approach to Helping

Open to seeing clients of all ages and presenting concerns, I specialize in treating mood and anxiety issues in teens and adults. I will work with you to identify concerns, create transparent treatment plans, and efficiently move toward healing and growth. I focus on evidence-based treatments, like CBT, to help individuals evaluate their relationship to their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so that they can develop the awareness, flexibility, and resilience required to live in alignment with their values. If you desire a better understanding of your unhelpful patterns, their origins and what maintains them, and you want to create meaningful change in your life, then this treatment is for you.

More Info About My Practice

We always offer a virtual “telehealth” therapy option. In addition, we have offices located in Chicago and Northbrook. For phobias, rituals, or behaviors that occur at specific locations, we can also meet you at home or on-site, to treat the issue where it’s activated.
