Turn fear into empowerment, despair into hope, attain the understanding and skills which will allow you to thrive. Life is often difficult, demanding, stressful and can leave you feeling overwhelmed, out-of control, exhausted, stuck and behaving in ways that are self-destructive. I aim to assist you in attaining a sense of optimism, adopt effective habits & thought patterns to maximize your potential, increase self control, motivation, relationships and resilience. I have 20 years of experience working with ethnically diverse, adolescents, couples and individuals in both inpatient and out-patient settings. Prior opening my full time private practice, I worked at
the Out-Patient Treatment Center of the Stone Institute of Psychiatry at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (12/2000-6/2008). My areas of expertise include: addictions, young adults, male issues, self-esteem, distorted body image, depression, anxiety, and couples-relational issues. My extensive & diverse experience has promoted the development of my unique,
integrative approach which has proven to attain symptom amelioration & progress in many, many cases. It would be my privilege to help anyone experiencing and sort of distress. I pride myself on always going the extra mile or 100 miles for a client. I offer evening and Sunday appointment's (in addition to regular business hours).
