Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Gender: Female

Languages Spoken:


I am a solution-focused therapist,  I have 30 years of experience helping people change their lives. I believe therapy should promote tangible change, not just insight.  A  healthy relationship with yourself and others coupled with the ability to govern your behavior is key to happiness and well being.  My approach is to listen deeply, conceptualize the issues, and  give feedback. Together, we will develop a strategy for enhanced functioning and quality of life.  My style is interactive, cognitive, compassionate and, when necessary, challenging. 

I offer online video sessions for those who cannot travel or who live outside the Chicago area.
