Chicago Psychotherapist/LCPC - Offering Secure Video Calls due to Covid-19

Gender: Female

Languages Spoken:

Life does not come with a manual, and most everyone can benefit from a little guidance navigating through challenging or disappointing times.  My clients seek therapy for any number of reasons – some are working through life transitions while others are struggling with more chronic issues. Everyone is unique and comes to therapy with their own experiences and responses to life stresses. Deciding to work with a therapist doesn’t mean you are broken or handling things poorly, instead, I believe that it simply means that you are choosing to take control of your response to difficulties in your life.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative and relaxed. Sessions resemble a conversation – not a traditional doctor/patient visit.

I do not see your concerns through the critical judgmental lens of abnormal psychopathology, instead, I see you as doing your best to navigate a stressful contradictory world. I want to understand you in the context of your unique experience and assist you work through the issues that trouble you.

If you are ready to create the change you want in your life - contact me and we can get started!
