I am licensed in Illinois with 18 years of professional work experience. I specialize in helping clients to cope with life changes as they navigate the big questions of life.
My therapeutic approach is integrative, with a focus on existential-humanistic, solution-focused, and strengths-based therapy methods. I operate on the understanding that each person is unique, and that different approaches work best for different people.
My counseling style is interactive and holistic. We will work on resolving your present challenges by looking at schemas or "life traps" that you developed in your past but continue to carry into your current ways of thinking about the world.
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I look forward to working with you as you navigate your journey.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Addictions, Relationship issues, Intimacy-related issues, Career difficulties, Coaching, Emptiness, Guilt and Shame, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Men's Issues, Midlife Crisis, Self-Love
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy
