There are times when everyone needs support, information, and new ways of coping. My training in psychodynamic psychotherapy has been layered with new understanding and techniques. I now include elements of feminist theories, relational theories, and cognitive-behavioral techniques, depending on the person and the problem.


The following list represents my specialties as a psychologist:

  • Grief, loss and adaptation
  • Life transitions (i.e., college, relocation, illness, work problems, children leaving, break-ups)
  • Midlife
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Divorce and separation
  • Couples counseling
  • Parenting concerns and caretaking of older parents
  • Women’s issues
  • Identity changes and development
  • Gay, lesbian, bisexual and questioning issues
  • College and graduate student problems
  • Creativity blocks
  • Workplace dilemmas

As a clinician, I also enjoy providing consultation to other therapists.

Advising and Professional Mentoring

As a psychologist/writer, I work with other artists and writers who get stuck in:

  • The creative process
  • Writing blocks
  • Procrastination
  • Low energy and avoidance

Consulting and Speaking

I speak to business groups.  I design and implement seminars for people who want to better understand:

  • Transitions – growth, losses and changes
  • Group and organizational processes – the human factor
  • Balance between work and personal life

My most recent talks and workshops have been: “Transitions in the Workplace” for Vistage and “Understanding Group Dynamics,” for Industrial/Organizational Program at The Chicago School.

  • Medicare Part B
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance
  • Northwestern University Student Insurance

For other insurance plans, I provide the appropriate forms for you to submit to your company but I do not accept them as payers.
