My Approach to Helping

The path to healing is journey, and it is different for each person. I am honored when I am selected to help others along this journey. My goal is to make therapy a safe space so that others can share their thoughts, feelings, and vulnerability without judgement. I am an integrative therapist as I am able to blend different techniques as needed to meet my client’s needs. I work with each client to design a treatment to fit their unique needs and goals.

More Info About My Practice

I am the Clinical Director of Chicago Psych Therapy Group, Inc., a holistic private practice in the North Park area. The practice is open 7 days of the week, not including holidays. In addition to in-person therapy, we provide teletherapy sessions through video as well as phone. We are in-network with many forms of medical insurance including: BCBS, Humana, United, Cigna, Magellan, Medicare, Aetna, and Tricare. I also accept out-of-network plans and self-pay.

Our office provides both in-office and teletherapy sessions. We offer sessions 7 days per week from morning to evening.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am specifically knowledgeable in working with chronic pain, transgender transition, LGBTQ+ issues, PTSD, BDSMkink, personality disorders, polyamory, relationship issues, anxiety disorder, and mood disorders.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy looks different for each person. In general it provides a safe space to address problems, whatever those problems may be. Maybe that problem is that an individual just needs that safe space. By utilizing that space, one may gain a sense of safety, process their problems, or learn coping skills. Each individual?s experience in the space may be different as their problems and goals will be different; however, psychotherapy helps each person in a similar way by helping individuals experience a greater satisfaction with life.
