I am committed to helping individuals create lasting positive change in the following areas …

Habits – Let go of unhealthy relationships with food, technology, over-working, over-spending or other out-of-balance habits.

Personal Relationships – Stop power-struggling, yelling or distancing with your partner or family, and cultivate satisfying connection with loved ones.

Work Relationships – Find your authentic professional voice. Exert the influence you want in your own career and with those you manage.

Well-being – Take control of stress, reactivity and busyness. Create a life of choices rather than “have-to’s”


After 17 years in this field, I am still inspired by the integrity and courage it takes to even consider an investment in counseling or coaching. Stress and busyness can easily swamp the very best of intentions.  But there are ways to really do it differently.

I love helping clients turn-off their inner-critic, embrace their power, and create the fulfilling, authentic lives that they deserve.

I have studied classic psychological techniques as well as those applying the latest neuroscience. I use a blend of methods in my practice to help you interrupt the habit of business as usual that can make change so difficult.

My training includes neuroplasticity, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapies. I have served as a mediator for the Chicago Center for Conflict Resolution and completed New York mediation certification training at the Columbia University School of Law.

Other professional experience includes management of clinical operations for a national employee assistance program (EAP) and consultation to executives at Fortune 1000 companies.
