About My Clients

Are you successful but not "truly" happy? Do you feel there is more to life than what you are currently experiencing? Moving abroad, processing trauma, having a baby, changing careers, navigating relationship challenges are life's roller coasters. I specialize in working with women who straddle multiple roles. I offer a warm and collaborative atmosphere to help you explore options, reconnect with your inner compass, and work toward your goals. Are you ready to make yourself a priority?

My Background and Approach

Working together, I can help you gain insight into: • what exactly is keeping you stuck and the possibilities that lie beyond what you are experiencing now and your comfort zone. • what are your emotional wounds and how to process them so they don't keep negatively impacting how you live your life • your own mindset: how you think about yourself, the world around you, and how this affects your feelings and behaviors • how to move through difficult emotions into a more fulfilling way of living • setting goals towards your desired emotional wellbeing. • how to make choices aligned with your goals. I work with women in several different time zones through confidential video-conferencing and also in person if you happen to live in the Chicago area. I utilize easy to use HIPAA compliant platforms to protect your confidentiality. You can start feeling better from the comfort on your home, using your laptop, tablet or phone, at your own pace, on your own schedule.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe therapy is not about you learning but about UNLEARNING how some thought patterns and behaviors are no longer serving you and are not bringing you closer to your goals. My passion is working with women to help them recognize their personal strengths and discover life patterns that are holding them back from the future they want to create. Help you take a turn on how you think of yourself and your life. I know that change happens not by leaps but by small steps done regularly and consistently. Remember...you current situation is not your permanent situation. This is a new chapter of your life and with support, you will live it on your own terms!
