Chicago Psychologist

I bring experience with many client questions and problems to my work with each individual client. I consider myself a generalist who works with complex individuals within the context of relationships critical to their lives. Familiar with a wide range of issues — including anxiety, ACOA, ADHD, PTSD, grief, depression, suicidal feelings or self-harming coping strategies, sexuality, sexual identity, sexual abuse, acculturation, divorce, eating disorders and life transitions — I have provided psychotherapy services for over 20 years. I have worked with high school, undergraduate and graduate students, and individuals from many cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. My clients come from various walks of life, cultures, religions, educational and employment backgrounds. I work with individuals who are living in the U.S.to attend school or who are returning to the U.S. after living abroad, as well as individuals preparing to return to their home country after living in the U.S. Thus, I will bring a rich experience with the complexity of many individual life journeys to your work with me.

First Appointment

Please call me to discuss counseling at 847-570-0817 for either office.

If I do not answer your telephone call, please leave a brief voicemail msg. Only I listen to messages. If you call on a weekday before 8:00pm, I will make every effort to return your call the same day. However, on weekends, or if you telephone after 8:00pm on a weekday evening, I may return your call the following weekday unless you tell me your call is urgent.

Please leave your first name, the telephone number(s) you wish me to call, and a few times when you will be available to talk privately. I will do my best to return your call during one of the times you leave.

When we talk the first time I will ask you to describe what brings you to contact me. This conversation also allows you to ask me questions and allows me to determine if my skills meet your needs. If you plan to use your health insurance to pay for your counseling, please have your insurance card and identification and group numbers at hand when you call. It also will be helpful if you review the questions on this website at the bottom of the web page titled “Paying for Psychotherapy” and talk with your insurer prior to talking with me.

You can contact me on a 24 hour basis for both my Chicago and Park Ridge offices at 847.570.0817. If your situation is an emergency, please leave me a message but then call your nearest hospital emergency room as I may be unable to return your call immediately.

Your privacy and confidentiality is important to me. Thus, I do not utilize text or email in communicating with clients. Although I understand this may be inconvenient at times, the privacy of either of these communication mediums can be compromised.
