COVID-19 Update: In an effort to maintain the safety of my clients and myself and abide by the shelter in place order in Illinois, I am currently only providing virtual sessions for clients. In office sessions will resume once state officials end the shelter in place order and it is safe to have face to face sessions.

There are times when partners become disconnected, unable to communicate effectively, and/or just plain irritated with each other. They may find themselves less interested in their partner for no real reason. I provide space for the exploration of underlying issues and healthy discussions. Together we will work to create better communication, restore the love and intimacy, and build a stronger partnership.
I currently accept BCBSIL PPO, UnitedHealthcare, Cigna and Credit/Debit Cards for payment.
