Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Skokie, IL

About My Clients

I focus on evidence-based treatments, like CBT, to help individuals evaluate their relationship to their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so that they can develop the awareness, flexibility, and resilience required to live in alignment with their values. If you want to have a better understanding of your unhelpful patterns and create meaningful change in your life this type of treatment is for you.

My Background and Approach

Alaina received her bachelors degree from Harvard University, where she was a member of the varsity cross country and track and field teams. She received her MS in Counseling Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before opening Contemporary CBT, Alaina worked for a group private practice, where she honed her skills as a clinician. Open to seeing clients of all ages and presenting concerns, Alaina specializes in mood and anxiety issues in teens and adults. She aims to practice therapy that works. Therapy that is evidence-based, goal-driven, and collaborative. She will work with you to identify concerns, create transparent treatment plans, and efficiently move toward healing and growth. Alaina aims to help all of her clients become more aware, resilient, and flexible.
