My Approach to Helping
I consider myself to be a warm, dedicated, and empathic helper for people who struggle with self-esteem, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, and addictions, and family members whose loved one(s) experience chronic serious mental illnesses and/or substance use problems. Working with your personal strengths, I will join with you to find the solutions you need. Asking for feedback, listening empathically, and answering your questions are some of the ways I collaborate with you from the beginning. I have worked successfully with individuals and couples and have been a respected psychotherapist and teacher in the North Shore and Chicago area for over 25 years.
