Psychologist Carl Jung introduced the term “wounded healer” to emphasize that healers often carry their own trauma and that self-healing is a vital component of their training. In my own journey, I recognize psychotherapy as a tool for confronting the devastating hardships, anguish, and suffering that life can present, with the ultimate goal of achieving personal growth and wholeness. I believe that psychotherapy can serve as a powerful catalyst for transformation, enabling individuals to lead more fulfilling, connected lives.
My approach to therapy draws on a diverse range of theories and methods, including depth psychology, psychodynamic therapy, Internal Family Systems, emotion-focused therapy, somatic therapy, mindfulness, visualizations, art therapy, and person-centered talk therapy. My clients often describe our work together as deep and empowering, and I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment that allows for meaningful exploration and deep insight. My intention is to support each client in cultivating a deeper connection to their psyche, body, and heart.
As a second-career therapist, I bring to my work nearly two decades of experience in user experience design, which has given me a unique perspective on therapy. I hold certifications in Jungian Studies from the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago and advanced yoga studies and teacher training from the Bhavana Institute for Yoga and Ayurveda. Additionally, I am a Registered Yoga Teacher and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Photography from Columbia College Chicago, as well as a Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northeastern Illinois University.
