You deserve happiness
Therapy is not just for healing. It's also for thriving.
I am a Chicago-based Mental Health Counselor
& former socio-cultural anthropologist.
I see self-pay & private insurance clients at Clarity Clinic on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, either online or in person in Evanston.
On Thursdays and Fridays I see Medicaid & uninsured clients at Trellus (formerly Asian Human Services) in person, online, or by phone.
To make an appointment with me, first determine which location your insurance is best suited for; and then either complete a Trellus intake application here requesting me by name in the form, or book an appointment with me directly at Clarity.
While I work with people from all walks of life, I specialize in providing therapy for academics.
I have a long-standing interest in the problem of loneliness and run therapeutic support groups on this issue.
Additionally, I'm interested in working with individuals and families affected by coercive control and cults, including QAnon.
I have an MEd in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from DePaul University.
Prior to becoming a therapist I was an academic who studied academia so I have both personal experience and research expertise on the highs and lows of this strange and unique career!
I got my PhD in Anthropology from the University of Chicago and worked as an adjunct, a post-doc, in university administration, and as a lecturer at various midwestern colleges and universities, while also conducting research at higher ed institutions in North and South America.
