I am a Clinical Psychologist licensed in the state of Illinois. I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology and a Masters of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Indiana University. I have previously provided clinical services in a number of settings including: university counseling centers, middle school counseling services, community mental health, weight-loss coaching for adolescents, and a medical weight loss practice. I have experience providing short and long term treatment for individuals, couples, families, and groups; and I am comfortable in the areas of crisis intervention and management. I have worked with clientele who represent diverse perspectives and I am committed to providing culturally competent services. I treat presenting concerns including (but not limited to): relationship issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, family of origin concerns, health and wellness, undergraduate and graduate students, binge eating/overeating, and adjustment to life transitions.
The process of therapy is a highly personalized journey, and I approach the therapy relationship from an open and collaborative perspective. I predominantly utilize interpersonal, mindfulness, and family systems theories to inform my clinical work. I have received specialized training in Marriage and Family Therapy and weight loss/weight management. My current areas of clinical interest include the process of change, wellness from an integrative health perspective, and mindfulness. Most recently, I completed the Integrative Health Coach Foundations Course at Duke University’s Professional Training Program.
I am a member of the American Psychological Association and a registrant with the National Register of Health Services Providers in Psychology. As such, I maintain the highest ethical standards set forth by my profession.
