I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of experience working with adolescents and adults. I received my doctoral degree from the School of Professional Psychology at Wright State University in 2006. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan in 2001.
I take a compassionate, collaborative, and integrative approach with my clients. I strive to create a comfortable and inclusive therapy environment. My therapy approach includes cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and insight-oriented treatments. I utilize a Health at Every Size approach to my work with clients with eating disorders, striving to challenge diet culture and instead working toward intuitive eating and size inclusivity.
I work with young adults and adults with a range of presenting concerns including eating disorders, mood, and anxiety disorders. I also have extensive experience treating those with school and career concerns, new college graduates, and people facing life transitions. I enjoy working with people around identity development and with clients who are in the LGBTQ+ community. I have worked with many clients dealing with infertility, perinatal and/or postpartum depression and anxiety, and parenting challenges.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my spouse, my two girls, my dog, and two cats. To relax, I like doing the daily crossword puzzle, taking walks, and baking with my daughters.
I am in-network with BCBS PPO insurance plans and serve clients 18+. I see clients T-Fri 8am-5pm. In addition to being licensed in Illinois, I am also credentialed under PSYPACT to provide telehealth in most states: https://psypact.org/mpage/psypactmap.
I want to know your story.
Biographies and autobiographies were always my favorite genre to read as a child, so no wonder I became a Clinical Social Worker. Venturing into an individual’s life, and understanding his/her/their own personal story is a gift I’m given each day I get to go to work.
What I am most passionate about is working with individuals who are struggling with the relationship with his/her/their body, food, and self-worth. This topic has been the focus of my training and professional life for nearly a decade. Working at Eating Recovery Center Insight Behavioral Health, provided extensive training in higher levels of care with emphasis on disordered eating and mood and anxiety diagnoses. In addition, further study at Evanston Hospital’s Chapman Center to earn the certified alcohol and drug counselor certification (CADC) provided even more exposure to patterns that often appear in family milieus and where shame often perpetuates the cycles of maladaptive behaviors.
Spreading the radical and refreshing message of deprogramming diet culture, calling out fatphobia, and weight stigma is my mission as a therapist. Using a foundation of concepts from Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating, individuals have broken the cycle of disordered eating and self shaming and moved towards freedom from worrying about self-worth tied to the number on the scale or the size of their pants.
In addition to my passion of healing from diet-culture, disordered eating patterns, and substance abuse, I’ve worked as a antepartum and postpartum social worker. Parenting is a wonderful and difficult journey and requires its own support for those going through it new or experienced. Does it ever get easier?
When I’m not listening to your story I enjoy time with my husband and children and can almost always be found outside, on the yoga mat or chatting with my besties near and far.
I earned my bachelor's degree in Public Relations from The University of Dayton and my Master's Degree in Social Work from Loyola University of Chicago.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 5 years of experience in individual, family and group psychotherapy for adolescents and adults struggling with eating disorders, mood disturbances, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, body image, low self-esteem, life transitions, relationship issues, and identity development.
I believe that the process of growth and healing requires a unique kind of strength and courage. I strive to provide an inclusive environment that honors safety and respect to empower you to explore the aspects of who you are, build insight into adaptive and maladaptive patterns of coping, and learn how to shift those patterns to encourage authentic living that is meaningful to you.
I am passionate about helping individuals and families understand and validate their emotional experiences by creating a therapeutic alliance built on trust, vulnerability, and authenticity. To address your individual needs, I draw from strategies based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Self-Compassion, Shame Resilience, Health At Every Size, and Intuitive Eating.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with a minor in sociology, from Western Illinois University and my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology (Counseling Practice) at Roosevelt University. I am also currently working toward becoming a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and will acquire complete certification through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals in 2023.

My passion is treating those struggling with eating disorders and related issues such as disordered eating patterns, body image, and low self-esteem/self-worth. I have experience working with adolescents and adults in inpatient and residential levels of care. I use a Healthy At Every Size (HAES) framework and treat individuals of all gender identities.

I use a collaborative and strengths-based approach to help empower you to identify your emotions, communicate your needs, utilize healthy coping skills, and practice self-compassion. I strive to meet clients where they are in their journey of healing and self-exploration, whether this is their first time in therapy or have a long history of treatment. I take a non-judgmental stance and work to create a safe and comfortable therapy environment where thoughts and emotions can be shared authentically.
I pull from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), and mindfulness techniques in my practice.
Outside of therapy and working to dismantle diet culture, I enjoy spending time at home with my husband and son, baking, thrifting, practicing yoga, and taking walks in nature.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a passion for supporting individuals and families through significant life adjustments that affect our social-emotional well-being: parenting, supporting children and adolescents with anxiety and depression, navigating family or spousal relationship issues, and handling career stressors are at the forefront of my experience.
I am most energized by learning about and equipping others with the tools necessary to develop and better themselves. Everyone’s story is different, and everyone’s needs are unique.
I hold my Master’s degree from the University of Chicago and my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Dartmouth College. I played and co-captained the Varsity Women’s Tennis team at Dartmouth, and I enjoy working with adolescent or college athletes on everything ranging from anxiety-related performance challenges to finding one’s identity beyond the sport. Before practicing therapy, I had the opportunity to work as a leader in corporate strategy for a healthcare company that went public during my time there.
I believe that most anyone can benefit from therapy. Whether you are experiencing a truly stressful event or simply wanting to be proactive about your mental health, my goal is to prioritize you through life’s challenges, and help you figure out how you can be your authentic self in an effort to navigate this world a little more comfortably and confidently.
Outside of my practice, I enjoy time with my husband, three children, and our dog! We love to play tennis and golf, catch a great musical in Chicago or NYC, spend time with extended family, and go out to eat.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who earned earned my masters and doctorate degrees from Roosevelt University in Chicago. I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Health and Rehabilitation Psychology. Prior to this, I obtained my bachelors degree in Psychology and English from Hope College.
In my 10+ years of practice, I have used my background in Health and Clinical psychology to evolve my approach to treatment. In my clinical practice, I utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach (CBT), and other evidence-based treatments, for a wide range of presenting emotional, behavioral, and adjustment issues in adults and adolescents. I have a passion for working with clients presenting with anxiety and mood-related issues. I specialize in the treatment of Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety, and other anxiety-related fears and behaviors. In recent years, I have expanded my knowledge to include the treatment of gastroenterology issues that are unique to mental health, including the gut-brain relationship. Additionally, I am passionate about women’s issues including perinatal and postpartum anxiety and depression, adjustment to parenting and managing family stress.
I strongly believe that anyone can benefit from the process of psychotherapy and I welcome questions. I aim to help clients develop insight, explore interpersonal relationships, and learn about the complexity of emotional well-being through a warm, inviting atmosphere. I am passionate about a proactive and educational approach to mental health that allows clients to feel safe, accepted, and welcomed.
Navigating the complicated world of nutrition as it relates to our overall health and well-being is nothing short of overwhelming. My mission as a dietitian is to help those who struggle with eating disorders sort through this abundance of nutrition information and not only understand the miraculous way food works to help nourish our bodies, but to foster a positive and normalized relationship with food while moving away from the toxicity of diet culture.
I am a Certified Eating Disorder Registered and Licensed Dietitian with 20 years of experience helping adults, adolescents and their families recover from eating disorders.

Most recently, I earned my CEDRD (Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian) certification through the Illinois Association of Eating Disorder Professionals.
Throughout my career I have worked in a variety of settings including long term care facilities, hospitals, and corporate wellness venues. My favorite of these, by far, has been my work in the behavioral health community! I have extensive experience at the residential, partial hospital and intensive outpatient levels of care and currently serve as the Clinical Nutrition Manager for the Eating Recovery Center/Pathlight Mood and Anxiety Center in Northbrook, IL.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family including my tenacious Yorkie named Dexter, cooking, baking (yes, I eat chocolate!) and getting outside to enjoy the immense beauty of nature. If it weren’t for my many strong ties to the city of Chicago you would find me living out west, nestled in the mountains of Colorado, enjoying all that the Centennial state has to offer.
