I am an experienced psychotherapist (LCSW) offering virtual psychotherapy sessions in both Illinois and California. Before COVID-19, I had a physical office in Evanston, IL. I hope to reopen an office in Evanston when things are safe again, but even after I do I will maintain a virtual practice. Because I am licensed in both California and I am able to see clients virtually anywhere in either of those states.
My work is a unique blend of pragmatism, cultivation of self-understanding, self-compassion, mindfulness and skill building focused on cultivating emotional intelligence. My areas of expertise are self-growth, relationships, parenting, family Issues, difficult emotions (anger, anxiety, depression and grief) and life transitions. In addition, I specialize in divorced co-parenting. I offer online classes and in-person workshops and authored the book “An Unexpected Journey: The Road to Power and Wisdom in Divorced Co-Parenting.
