Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Evanston, IL
You are my focus, not the problem. You are the best expert of you, and ultimately know what is best. My role is to facilitate an environment in which clients can bring about positive change.
One size does not fit all. Your needs are unique to you. I use a strengths-based approach drawing from person-centered, Humanistic/Existential, Cognitive Behavioral, trauma-focused and Psychodynamic approaches.
Through expertise in both private practice and community mental health settings as a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CADC), I've learned that loss of control, surrender of the will to a craving doesn’t have to lead to prolonged suffering.

Mental afflictions are recognized by their ability to disrupt the balance of the mind, resulting in unwholesome behavior, which may give rise to suffering for ourselves and others. I aim to restore balance.

Anxiety, like other psychological maladies, arises when people stop looking at themselves honestly and acceptingly. I strive to create honest acceptance.
