Welcome to Chronic Illness Psychotherapy!

This is a private psychotherapy practice in Evanston, Illinois, intended to help those facing chronic health challenges. I also offer virtual sessions, but only for clients who are residing in Illinois.

Whether you don’t have a name for your symptoms, are facing a new diagnosis, or have been dealing with your health concerns for decades, I am here to help you make improvements to your mental and emotional health as you navigate the medical world. You may have gotten a referral from your physician or heard through a friend how beneficial therapy can be when dealing with illness. Whatever the case, you are taking the first step of seeking out support for your mental health, which is the hardest part. Even if there is a waitlist, I always strive to connect potential clients with someone who can see them in a timely manner.

Our physical health is closely related and intertwined with our mental health and overall quality of life. A primary goal of therapy is to increase functioning as much as possible by addressing the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors surrounding the illness. Not only do I see the person with the illness, but I also see loved ones of those with chronic conditions, such as parents, siblings, or partners. Illness affects the whole family system, and I am here for the caregivers too.
