My Approach to Helping

My primary goal in therapy is to create a trusting, safe, non-judgmental environment that allows you to process and explore what is keeping you from reaching your own personal goals. I use an eclectic approach dependent upon your presenting issues and goals to ensure I am meeting your expectations for therapy. This can include cognitive-behavioral techniques to change negative thought patterns, relaxation exercises to cope more effectively with stress, or analysis of your role in the various systems (e.g. family, work) in which you exist to determine what you can and cannot control in those systems. I have worked solely in an outpatient setting providing therapy and testing to children, adolescents, and adults for the last 5 years. I have a special interest in whole body health acknowledging that our emotional health does not exist and cannot progress without addressing physical and environmental health.

More Info About My Practice

I earned my doctorate in 2011 after 5 years of graduate education and training at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2005 from Loyola University Chicago with a Major in Psychology and Minor in the Psychology of Crime and Justice. I have trained and worked in outpatient, school, and inpatient settings and continued my education with a focus on mindfulness and nutritional psychology. I personally strive (but do not always succeed) to live mindfully and maintain mind-body health through regular exercise and meditation. Outside of work you will find me at the gym, the baseball field, or with my family and friends. My favorite day is spent at the beach, watching my son play baseball or an epic game night!
