Profession: Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: For 15 years, I have enjoyed working with teens and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship conflict and disordered eating/body image issues. I provide brief initial phone assessments at no-charge and answer my email ( regularly. Contact me to see 'if we are a good fit.'

After graduating with my Masters Degree from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), I completed additional clinical training at the University of Michigan Medical Center. In addition, I spent over 10 years on staff at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago providing therapy for adolescents and families.

I am trained in a very effective type of treatment for anxiety and depression called Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT). One of my approaches is to help clients see things in a different perspective by challenging unproductive thinking patterns. I believe it is extremely important to provide and to nurture a supportive, secure and empathetic therapeutic relationship.

I know that it can be very difficult to seek out help and I work very hard to create a secure, nonjudgmental and confidential environment. Again, I am happy to respond to email and provide
brief phone assessments no charge.

I check my voicemail regularly.

After-school and evening appointments available.

My office is easily accessible to several main 'L' stops and has a garage with validated parking available. (Corner of Wabash and Washington; 1 block west of Michigan Avenue.) Across the street from the State Street Macy's
