I’m a psychotherapist with offices in downtown Chicago, Hyde Park and Oak Park. I became a mental health counselor after enjoying a long career as a professional musician, teacher and actor. I work for The Claret Center, a non-profit, community-based agency in Hyde Park. My supervisor there is Allan Schnarr, MDiv, PhD.


As a counselor I’m able to put to use some of the skills I developed as an artist: I know how to listen carefully to your story, how to work collaboratively with you, and how to apply theoretical knowledge in a creative way that addresses your particular needs at this time. I believe in keeping your sessions down-to-earth and based in the reality of the here and now.


I’m committed to inclusion and social justice in my therapy practice. I welcome individuals of all races, ethnicities, religious beliefs, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and body types.
