Are you feeling weighed down by anxiety or depression? If you find it difficult to manage these overwhelming emotions know you are not alone. You do not have to suffer while trying to ‘figure things out.’ Together, we will work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of these challenges and build ways to cope that give you your life back.
I am so glad you are here. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Trauma Therapist in Chicago, Illinois. I have an extensive background working in the field of education and mental health with over 20 years of experience. Before entering private practice I've worked for several of the top therapeutic treatment facilities, served as a crisis management specialist, professional consultant, educator, and senior supervising therapist.
This is a 'judgement-free zone' to express and process; I approach the therapeutic relationship with sensitivity, respect, and warmth.
It is important for me to create a space where my clients feel safe and comfortable. The therapeutic relationship is one of the most powerful and unique opportunities we have to bring about lasting change; I respect the integrity of each client's process. I want for you to feel like you can be transparent with me; there is healing in sharing your narrative.
You are here for a reason; every day is your chance to make your life what you would like it to be.

About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
