"As a therapist, I believe in the power of self-awareness in helping people overcome adversity. Trained in Systems Therapy at the Family Institute at Northwestern University, my orientation is to use relationships to strengthen our understanding of one another, and of ourselves. I value the humanistic experience most of all, and strive to learn as much as possible about one's past motivations and ways of coping. I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is the key ingredient in effecting change. I use compassion and acceptance as tools to help create space for that change.
I work with individuals, couples, and families with a variety of constraints including issues with attachment, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, infidelity, divorce, blended families, adoption, grief and loss, phase-of-life, self-development, multiculturalism, and immigration.
I earned my Masters degree from Northwestern University in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Chicago Center for Relationship Counseling. Additionally, I am a Clinical Consultant at Cook County Department of Corrections Mental Health Transition Center, as well as Behavioral Health Therapist at Chicago Family Health Center."
