My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed counselor in Chicago with over 12 years of experience providing individual therapy. You should reach out to me if you are feeling stuck, lost, confused, sad, angry, or uninspired. In our sessions you will be fully seen and heard. The unique relationship we establish is essential to fostering positive change. Starting from a place of curiosity, we will resolve current issues and tackle problematic patterns. My goal is to support your self-exploration. As a result, you will gain an improved sense of wellbeing. Together we will identify what is causing you distress, and work collaboratively to move you toward a more fulfilling life.

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. This ensures 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.
