Each of us has our own unique story. Oftentimes, aspects of it can bring us pain and confusion, leading us to develop disruptive thoughts and behaviors. This is when therapy can be helpful. My clients tend to be individuals and couples who realize they are not living at their fullest potential and want to get there. Together, we can create a space where you feel safe to explore problematic patterns and connect with healthy, more productive ones that move you forward.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative, using aspects of psychodynamic, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and positive psychology as well as creative approaches like art, movement, metaphor, and visualization. Additionally, research increasingly shows a strong connection between our psychological, emotional, and physical beings and how each can damage as well as heal the other. As a CYT (Certified Yoga Teacher) I bring an understanding of how to align our mind, body and spirit.

I do individual and couple therapy in the following areas:

  • eating disorders
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relational issues
  • self-injury
  • pregnancy/postpartum
  • grief/loss
  • parenting
  • work/life balance
  • life transitions
  • sexuality
  • gender issues

Further, issues and concerns can be connected to other parts of our lives, so I am open to exploring whatever is meaningful for you.

A bit about me

I received my Master’s Degree from DePaul University in Counseling and Human Services and went on to complete a 2 year certification program at the Chicago Institute of Psychoanalysis in Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. In addition to my current private practice, I am on the advisory board for Erasing the Distance (www.erasingthedistance.org), and mentor and serve as a Professional Advisor for DePaul University students. Prior to moving to Madison I was in private practice in Chicago, a therapist at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital in their Partial Hospitalization Program for Eating Disorders, and adjunct faculty at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. In 2014 I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training at The Studio in Madison, WI.   I am also a member of the Madison Area Wellness Collective (MAWC).  Please find out more about it as well as a list of other provider members at http://www.madisonwellnesscollective.org/
