My approach is informed by the ideas and ethics of Narrative Therapy.

“I’m really interested in what persons determine to be preferred ways of living and interacting with themselves and each other. That’s one of my major interests in this work. If the ways of living and thinking that persons often come into therapy with aren’t working for them, for what ever reason, I’m interested in providing a context that contributes to the exploration of other ways of living and thinking.”

I have been in practice working with individuals, couples and families for over 25 years. I also consult with and provide supervision to therapists interested in narrative practice. In partnership with the Evanston Family Therapy Center and the Narrative Therapy Initiative, I facilitate training groups and workshops.

I have a BA in Spanish Literature from Wesleyan University, an MA in Community Counseling from the University of Cincinnati and an interdisciplinary PhD in Feminist Theory and Clinical Counseling from the Union Institute and University.
