My Approach

There is so much noise around us – particularly as women – it is often difficult to discern our own truth. I believe when we are given the space to slow down, reflect, and connect with our inner selves, we find the answers we are searching for. If you are feeling stuck, unsure of how to move forward, drained from listening to the expectations of those around you, therapy could be helpful. In our sessions together we will explore thoughts and feelings that may be interfering with your sense of peace, joy, and contentment. We will work collaboratively to create an environment where you can hear your own inner wisdom. In our work together, I will be honest and direct, gentle and challenging. I will do my best to understand your experience so that, together, we can discern a path forward that leads to your personal fulfillment.

My Background

Before I was a therapist, I worked in the corporate world. During this time, I witnessed many of the complicated challenges women face as professionals, as business owners, as mothers, as daughters, as partners, and as friends to one another. It was this experience that led me to become a Therapist. I attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. During graduate school I completed two years of advanced training in Mindfulness & Behavior Therapies and specialized in working with survivors of childhood sexual trauma. Since graduating I received additional training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, Experiential Therapy, and Relational Psychotherapy. I created my practice to offer women a compassionate and nonjudgmental place to talk through the many unique challenges they face. To learn more about my practice please visit my website -
