I’m a licensed mental health counselor with offices in downtown Chicago, Hyde Park and Oak Park. I became a therapist 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.
As a counselor I’m able to put to use some of the skills I developed as an artist: I know how to listen deeply, how to work collaboratively, and how to apply theoretical knowledge creatively to address your particular needs. I believe in keeping sessions down-to-earth and based in the reality of the here and now. Please visit my Writing page for many more details on how I think about the art of psychotherapy.
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.
