Our lives can be complex, and the path to growth means looking at our lives and worlds as a connected whole. That’s why I offer individual, relationship and sex therapy. Appointments are available weekday mornings, afternoons and evenings, in-person in the downtown Chicago or Skokie offices, or virtually for Illinois residents that are unable to attend in person.

Happiness starts with authenticity – the ability to both know yourself and love yourself. Together we’ll explore who you are, who you want to be and how to tear down the barriers holding you back from experiencing your full, uncensored self.

The best relationships take teamwork, and the strongest teams are courageous enough to be challenged to find more loving ways to relate. Together we’ll work to heal past wounds, reconnect, and reignite the love, passion and commitment that brought you together in the first place.

The saying is true: it isn’t fun unless you’re both having a good time. With compassion, creativity and unconditional support, I’m committed to helping you experience more enjoyable moments of intimacy, address your sexual concerns and broaden your sexual repertoire.
