About me

I am an experienced counselor who is dedicated to helping couples and individuals resolve ongoing problems in intimate, committed relationships.

Do you want a better relationship? Would you like to move beyond the losses you've suffered to find peace and contentment? Do you want more meaning in your life? I can help you accomplish all this and more. Chances are you need to understand yourself better, to listen to your own inner wisdom, to take responsibility for your life by facing reality. To learn to care for yourself, accept every part of yourself, and think clearly without distortions. I can help you develop courage, integrity, and a stronger sense of self. Call me, and let's talk about your life.

My specialty is relationship counseling with couples and individuals, sometimes those struggling with anxiety, depression, or trauma. I will help you get past the ways you get stuck in relationships, especially your relationship with a significant other.

I am licensed by the State of Illinois, have a graduate degree in clinical social work, am a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. I am a Certified Focusing Trainer and have advanced training in EMDR. Some of my preferred therapies are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
