Counseling / Therapy
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist who teaches graduate courses in psychotherapy at Loyola University, Chicago to both clinical psychology students and pastoral counseling students. I also supervise students in their therapy practicum.
In my own therapy practice I offer both individual and couple counseling and coaching.
In my 25+ years as a psychotherapist I’ve come to appreciate the wisdom found in various therapeutic models. So I’ve developed an integrative approach. I believe it’s important to tailor the therapy to the needs of each unique individual.
Our past, present, and future all influence our choices and behaviors. So I find it helpful to put on trifocals to see where we’re at, how we got here, and where we want to go.
As social beings our interpersonal relationships are vital to our well-being and happiness. Sometimes our interpersonal style helps us connect with others; sometimes it gets in the way of our relationships.
As individuals we are unfolding in our own unique way and I believe there is an inner wisdom that leads us to who we are and what we really desire. Sometimes we get disconnected from ourselves and need to get back in touch with our real self; or we get disconnected from others and need to reconnect with their real selves.
My office is located at 2603 Broadway (just East of the intersection of Green Bay Rd and Central St) in Evanston, Illinois. The space has a comfortable living room feel to it, is easily accessible by public transportation, and parking is readily available. I have weekday, evening, and weekend hours and I accept several insurance plans.
