About Me

I am an individual /group therapist licensed in Illinois with over 17 years of experience working as a therapist and crisis worker in the Chicago area. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, family issues and veteran issues. I also helped many people who have experience trauma and emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity and empowering my clients to become their own therapist. My approach combines mindfulness therapy, psychodynamic therapy, trauma focused therapy, existential therapy and internal family systems.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

Mark is an amazing therapist, extremely studied, and caring. He genuinely cares about your well being and is very insightful and respectful. His ability to listen is amazing and overall he has helped me through a lot this last few weeks and I couldn’t have asked for better support in my life. Thank you

Mark listened to my story, he let me explain everything in our first session. This gave me a huge feeling of relief and weight off my shoulders that I didn’t know I was carrying. He then gave me strategies and perspective from there on that gave me the confidence to be a better person knowing that I can tackle this and I am strong!

Work with me!
