About My Practice
Personal experiences and emotional needs are unique. I offer sensitive, collaborative and structured therapy to address that individuality. I work with adult clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression and life transitions. I provide a respectful space, understanding of individual circumstances and tools for effective emotional and behavioral change.
I believe that truly successful therapy offers resolution of the negative mindset and redirection of energy into positive action and holistic balance.
My approach to treatment combines integrative modalities. I'm certified with The Feeling Good Institute, Level 3, in TEAM-CBT. I'm also trained in EMDR, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness and meditation.
I hold degrees from The University of Chicago (A.M.), Northwestern University (M.S.C.) and Loyola University of Chicago (B.S.N.).  I am licensed (LCSW) in the state of Illinois.
