I have a wide variety of therapeutic approaches that I utilize in my psychotherapy practice because I know that there is no one model that works for everyone. I focus on getting to know you and your individual style and needs so that I can tailor therapy to be the best fit for you. No matter what model of therapy used, you can expect warmth, acceptance, and genuine compassion as the foundation of our work together.

Chicago, Illinois 60608 | 1-877-606-6161

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

One does not need to hit rock bottom to seek psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a privilege for everyone facing life's stresses/conflicts. Unlike prescribed medications that serve to suppress symptoms of our minds & bodies, one day at a time, psychotherapy goes to the roots of the issues, and then resolves them. That means, we don’t need to take meds all our lives. In the quiet, accepting, and safe environment of psychotherapy, we are invited to open up the parts of ourselves that were shut down, to free the knots that entangled our hearts. We talk through things and take away an arsenal of tools to reclaim our lives. Help is available. You can come home to your true self which is love.

All humans suffer with feelings that they re not good enough. It presents differently in each person and the treatment process may look different, but the core struggle is there is all of us. I work with clients to identify where their core belief of inadequacy comes from so that they can be aware when that is stopping them in life. I help clients to be present with themselves and their thoughts so that they can live a life of value and continue moving forward despite their past.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

155 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 603, Chicago, Illinois 60601 | 773-649-4135

The process of engaging in psychotherapy can be a rich and rewarding experience. With a kind, engaging and inquisitive mind, my approach to therapy is based in humanistic, client-centered and existential philosophies. I truly believe that each person has within them the power to heal through thoughtful exploration of emotional patterns, spiritual concerns and resulting experiences. While focusing on present-moment concerns, the past will arise and show its influence. We will work together to piece out what is necessary to explore but not dive into your entire past. Sometimes this is necessary, sometimes it is not. I encourage each person to work with me in guiding their healing process.

Psychotherapy - for those willing to take the journey - can be one of the most amazing experiences we do in life. When a person gets insight into their own psychological processes, and achieves that understanding of how it all comes together and interacts on a psychological level, it can be really empowering, liberating, and exciting. This can also be a bit scary to try because usually there is a lot going on before someone decides to find a therapist. But any journey starts with that first step - and that first step can be a great step.
