It has been in my heart to be a therapist ever since I was young. I truly find purpose in helping others and improving your quality of life. This is why I added to my practice with Yoga. I want to ensure that I have the tools to help you reach your goals.

If you are open and willing, you can make a change. The biggest reason I see people not moving forward with change is that facing trauma is extremely uncomfortable, and who can blame them. With me, I use Cognitive Processing Therapy. This means we don't go into detail about your trauma unless you want to. Our main goal is to figure out what is keeping you stuck, and help you get unstuck.

I think working as a team is the most important thing. I am not going to make you do anything you don't want to do. I may make suggestions you disagree with, and that's okay. This is your treatment and my goal is to give you the tools and challenge you to reach your goals. We are looking for small changes, as most change does not happen overnight. I have confidence that you can make that change.

Hi! I’m Liz. I’m an experienced and compassionate therapist in the Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago. I work with a variety of clients, but central to all my therapeutic relationships is the belief that everyone has the potential to feel and function better and more effectively than they think. Whatever may be troubling you, I will hold space for you while working collaboratively to get at the roots of what may be making your life harder than it needs to be. I am very casual and use humor abundantly, so sitting down with a total stranger and discussing your innermost self isn’t nearly as hard as it might seem. I’d love to meet you!

If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, sadness, or motivation you are not alone. Many of us encounter roadblocks that interfere with our ability to live a life full of joy, meaning, purpose, and vitality. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions keep us stuck and cause us to feel we are merely surviving rather than thriving.

As a psychologist and coach, I am here to guide you along your journey to better health and wellness. Whether you are looking to make a major life change or a small adjustment I am here to help you move toward your vision for the future. Let's work together to identify what’s holding you back, overcome the roadblocks, and help you transform into your happiest and healthiest self.

If we are honest with ourselves about what we want, have the courage to work at it day after day, and embrace progress over perfection, we are capable of achieving so much more than we thought possible. Let me help you create a life that is overflowing with the experiences and purpose you’ve always wanted.

To those looking to begin therapy I would encourage you to give it a try and expect to learn a lot about yourself. We all face difficult experiences in life but we do not have to face them alone. Working with a therapist offers you a private, boundaried relationship in which to explore thoughts and feelings that might be difficult to share with others in your life.

I would also encourage you to shop around, speak to several potential therapists, and work to find a therapist who is a good fit for you. There are so many styles of therapy and personalities of therapists out there. Trust yourself and keep looking until you find the right provider for you.

If you have any questions or are interested in setting up an introductory call with me, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you.

Life is truly a gift that is meant to be enriching, filled with freedom and happiness. At times we experience challenges that prevent us from living life the way we truly desire. As a modern cognitive behavioral therapist, I understand these challenges and how they may be altering you internally. I am ready to be there every step of the way to tackle the unexplainable internal struggles. My approach to therapy is a collaborative, solution focused and nonjudgmental. Through this approach I will assist you in gaining insight into who you are, empower you to grow and allow you to truly gain the life that you deserve to live.

Together we can identify the best strategies, perspectives, and mindsets in order for you to create long lasting mental, emotional, and behavioral health that can improve your life. While working together, we will navigate life transitions, ending of relationships, grief, identity issues, self love, family issues, self esteem, depression, anxiety and more.

I will see you as a respected human being and treat you with care and understanding. Our main objective together is to restore the balance and help you live the life you always envisioned and desired.

Taking that first step to begin therapy can be overwhelming and anxiety provoking. From the initial phone consultation through the long-term therapeutic process, I aim to create an open, welcoming, and non-judgmental therapy experience where my clients feel empowered to make positive changes in their personal lives and relationships. As your therapist, I will work with you to identify your strengths and to set goals of therapy that excite and motivate you. 

I am experienced working with adult individuals struggling with a range of difficulties arising from depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, trauma, low self-esteem, dysfunctional family system and parent relationship issues, history of abuse, and difficulties maintaining healthy adult relationships. I also specialize in working with young adults who are struggling to navigate the difficult transition from adolescence into adulthood, and help these individuals establish a strong sense of self and long-term personal and career goals.

Please contact me for your free phone consultation when you can learn more about my practice and how therapy can help you experience more fulfillment in your relationships, career, and daily life.
