Specialties: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, PTSD

Life is full of twists and turns we never expect to encounter. We feel alienated and out of balance. Sometimes we simply feel lost and do not know which direction we are facing. Feelings of depression, anxiety and/or physical symptoms can shadow this experience and lead us to feeling more isolated. When we find ourselves in just this situation we tend to view it as if we are stuck. To me, however, we are being called to transformation and more often than not we all need assistance as we walk that path.

My practice is built to offer that companionship. I offer an open, caring, supportive container to assist you in making the change your life is demanding of you.

My emphasis is in depth psychology with training in Jungian, psychodynamic and Narrative modalities. I am a relationally oriented therapist and believe that suffering is a purposeful function of being human and is to be embraced if we are to find the golden nugget in the pain we experience.

My focus is on clients who are relatively high functioning, but who happen to be experiencing the types of issues and challenges that commonly present themselves, particularly relationship issues, developmental (e.g., adolescent and young adult) issues, mid-life (“second half of life”) issues, career and occupational issues, and issues involving meaning and purpose in life. I work with individual clients–adults and adolescents–as well as with couples and families. My therapeutic approach is best suited to clients who are highly motivated, anxious and willing to change, and committed to undertaking the difficult work of exploring their inner self. My graduate training is in pastoral counseling, which recognizes not only the psychological, but also the spiritual, dimension of human beings. I serve as adjunct faculty at Loyola University Chicago, where I both teach and counsel graduate students. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor and a certified Jungian Psychotherapist. My orientation is holistic: I work from an integrated–mind, body, spirit–perspective. My therapeutic approach, which incorporates dream analysis, recognizes the role of the unconscious and the inherent potential of each person to realize his or her authentic Self.

A therapist in private practice, I trained as a pastoral counselor through the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago; my license is LCPC To my counseling practice I bring many years experience as an educator of teens and young children, as well as reunification work with families affected by incarceration. My experience also includes facilitating groups to address domestic violence for survivors and for batterers along with groups for people in recovery from substance abuse. Additionally, I am a Benedictine sister; I value life in my monastic community, praying together and sharing daily experience with about forty sisters, seeking God in all.

As a therapist, I journey with people seeking to rekindle a spark of the divine within, a source to heal their inner selves or themselves in relationship with significant others. When people find they’ve gotten out of right relationship with themselves, with those close to them, or with the larger community, we work together to find the way to a more abundant life, using methods that work best for them in their situation, such as guided imagery, mindfulness, non-violent communication, journaling, storytelling, or dreamwork, along with observing and exploring behaviors, thoughts, and feelings they may want to change.

My clients are families, couples and individuals – from adolescents to elders. We do our work in English or Spanish language on a range of concerns: depression, family conflict, trauma, anxiety, coping skills, peer relationships, spirituality, career counseling, parenting, self-esteem, substance abuse, mood disorders, personality disorders, personal growth, and family reunification.

As a Jungian oriented therapist, I view the struggles of life as opportunities for growth and transformation. I am particularly interested in how the spiritual and psychological dimensions of the individual psyche interconnect and contribute to the potential for healing and wholeness. My approach to therapy is relational as well as psychodynamic. I understand the relationship between therapist and client to be one of the most important factors in the healing process. I therefore endeavor to create a thoughtful, compassionate, and safe space for that healing to occur.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Masters degree in Counseling as well as a Masters in Pastoral Studies, both from Loyola University, Chicago. I am a graduate of the Clinical Training Program (CTP), a two year certification program in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy from the Jung Institute of Chicago and have completed Basic Training in EMDR through Argosy University, Chicago.

I have previously served as Clinic Therapist and Intake Coordinator and currently as a Volunteer Therapist , Clinic Committee member, and Board of Trustees member at The C. G. Jung Center in Evanston where I also facilitate monthly dream groups. I work well with individual adults who are looking for transformation and are motivated to change those areas that are not working in their life. I utilize dreams, active imagination, and mindfulness/mind-body modalities. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, life transitions, self-esteem issues, loss/grief, spiritual issues, and trauma/sexual abuse/PTSD.

To live in alignment with our soul’s purpose is something many of us long for. But finding a path is not always easy. All-too-human feelings of grief, anxiety, depression and trauma may be overwhelming at times. Through 25 years of clinical experience, supervision and personal work, I feel able to offer a space for us to explore what you bring with you and what you would like to transform. I see myself as a companion and guide on your journey. This is what I love to do.

I am also an EMDR therapist. EMDR is a cutting-edge approach to desensitizing and reprocessing trauma and anxiety so people can “get past their past.”

I believe that the path towards wholeness asks us to be open to messages from the Unconscious, coming through dreams, intuition, images, body sensations, and other routes not under our conscious control. When we listen to these messages we have a chance to integrate more of who we are and live a more meaningful life. The darkness of the situation that brings people into therapy can lead to healing and growth.

I am a Clinical Social Worker with a holistic approach combining Jungian depth psychology with psychodynamic and systems theories. I graduated from Loyola University of Chicago in 1985 with a Masters in Social Work. I completed a two-year Clinical Training Program at the Jung Institute of Chicago in 2012 and am a Certified Jungian Psychotherapist. I utilize dreamwork and active imagination and am qualified to administer and interpret the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Inventory), a tool to help people understand themselves and others better. As a Certified HANDLE Practitioner I do neurodevelopmental work with adults, teens and children through the HANDLE Institute. I have experience in helping parents understand both their gifted children, and those with special needs. I also work with people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). My office is scent-free and chemical-free.

I am available as a companion on the inner journey in affiliation with Apple Farm Community (www.applefarmcommunity.org). I can meet with people in the Chicago area, or, for those who would like to visit Apple Farm for a retreat, I or another Apple Farm companion could meet with you in conjunction with your visit.

My focus is on supporting the individual’s inner work and journey toward individuation. Work on the inner journey includes dealing with outer life issues, such as family, work, relationships, and life transitions and includes work with dreams or other images. Companioning is not traditional therapy, but is intended to help the individual find the deeper meaning in their life.

If you have any questions or might be interested in sharing part of your journey, let me know and we can talk further about the possibilities.

About Apple Farm
Apple Farm acts as a container, a protected space, for people to explore their own interior life. The Farm is a safe haven from the complexities of contemporary life with its rapid pace, constant social media, contentious atmosphere and the widespread assumption that doing is more significant than being.

According to Helen Luke, founder of Apple Farm Community:
“Anyone who seeks for meaning in his inner life must therefore learn to listen with all the discrimination of which he or she is capable for that which he or she recognizes, however dimly as the ultimately single voice with a thousand names. It comes to us from the ground of our being and brings in a unique way to each individual an intuition of the unchanging oneness of life. It speaks through work or through image and the looking and the listening are ultimately one experience when we have ears to hear and eyes to see.” ¬ Helen Luke, Founder of Apple Farm Community, “The Voice Within”, Kaleidoscope.
