I’m a licensed 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 earned a master’s degree from Northeastern Illinois University and am now employed by The Claret Center. If you’re interested in knowing more, you can download my bio here.
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’ve also spent a substantial amount of time working with men, individually and in groups.
I have a strong commitment to social justice in my therapy practice. I welcome individuals of all races, ethnicities, religious beliefs, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and body types.
