My Approach to Helping
I am conducting visits in-person (Chicago - Roscoe Village) and via video telehealth to 30 states and Washington, D.C.
I am the Director of Compass Health Center's Trauma Program (Chicago), where I offer specialty care and supervise psychologists, professional counselors, and clinical social workers. I strive for more than patient “functioning” as an end goal; I support my patients toward self-actualization and greater inner connection. If you feel stuck, consider a depth psychological approach. Many patients have only experienced supportive or solution-focused therapies, not realizing how these approaches inadvertently maintained their unhelpful patterns. Together, we will strive to find the right answer, not just the quick one.
When appropriate, I also provide time-limited protocols: Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). I deliver trauma-focused psychotherapy within the evidence-based practice model, balancing patient preferences, clinical wisdom, and best available research.
Thank you for considering me for your care. Please outreach via email to express interest.
