My Approach to Helping
I strive to create a safe and supportive environment that facilitates change, exploration and improvement. My approach includes action oriented techniques including identifying goals, working on independent activities between sessions, and developing mindfulness and meditation skills. Mindfulness techniques may help you manage symptoms and experience your emotions in a non-judgmental way.
More Info About My Practice
I provide individual and relationship therapy for adults. I usually have day and evening appointments available and I am located in the Bucktown neighborhood. I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO coverage. My office is located close to public transportation and metered street parking is easily available.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in working with adults who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or questioning. These aspects of your identity may not be what brings you to therapy but they will be taken into consideration with understanding and respect.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
I have heard "I am not sure if my problem is severe enough for therapy." There is no measure of a problem being "big enough" to bring to therapy. Therapy can be useful for a wide range of concerns that you have about yourself, your family or relationships.
