My Approach to Helping

Taking appropriate COVID-19 precautions, I'm offering video or teletherapy sessions. I look forward to meeting you and staying safe together.

There are moments when we feel misunderstood, unheard or alone. Sometimes, we just feel “stuck.” We may be grieving death or heartbreak, reliving trauma, facing self-doubt, or questioning our identity or purpose. Some of us are struggling with addiction, life changes, negative patterns of behavior, intense anxiety or deep sadness that may be increasingly overwhelming or painfully numbing. Others are feeling like they’re losing a sense of self through excessive social media or technology use. Experiences like these may have come on for you recently, or they are constant reminders of what life has always been.

A Midwesterner living in L.A., I hope to guide you on a personal therapeutic journey, on which we can begin improving your quality of life by thoughtfully exploring your intricate inner world and unique history. We will do so together in a non-judgmental space fostered by unconditional positive regard, acceptance and deep empathy. I primarily use a person-centered approach to therapy to assist clients in seeking a life they desire.

I merge psychotherapy, mindfulness and somatic work to help bring back mind and body balance after traumatic events. I am trained in and utilize the trauma-based interventions Trauma Resiliency Model® and Community Resiliency Model®.

I enjoy working with individuals and couples going through major life transitions like graduating from high school or college, beginning a new job or changing careers, marriage, parenthood, separation divorce, death of a loved one, and other moments in life that may feel overwhelming, intimidating or lonely.

I also have an interest in identifying social media and Internet addiction and its effects on one's mood, identity, self esteem, and relationships online and off.

More Info About My Practice

I believe in the power of deep empathy, connecting through a shared emotional experience, and the art of active listening. I am aware of my privilege and understand the importance of identifying my blind spots. Curiosity connects me with those different than me, and commonalities can always be identified through our shared human experience. I believe our pets understand us like not many others, and a solo road trip can calm the soul. I believe mental health care is a right, not a privilege. If I cannot meet your therapeutic needs, I can identify alternative resources in L.A., like the wonderful Southern California Counseling Center, where I began my training. Self-care is not a buzzword, it's as vital to our well-being as the water we drink and the air we breathe. I believe humor has a place in therapy. I'm passionate about Chicago sports teams, traveling, film, podcasts, connecting through food, and creating a safe space in therapy where personal and relational change can be made.
