Practice Description: Therapy does not have to be a lifetime investment, though it can be. The work should be a goal-driven partnership between the two people in the room. Often we find new goals and have to reassess priorities, shifting back and forth between concrete issues and more abstract concerns with the consistent, overall goal of reducing emotional pain. If you have a question, please email me at or call 773-273-0474 and we can plan for a meeting over the phone or in person. I will be glad to answer any questions regarding fees and insurance.
