I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience. In my private practice in Chicago, I provide individual, evidence-based, psychotherapy for adults.
For 22 years I have served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. In this capacity, I have taught a variety of courses in the clinical psychology doctoral program including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In 2021, I was honored with award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Academic Instruction’ by my students for my (online) ACT class.
I have studied evidence-based therapies since my graduate training. In 2015 I began learning ACT and sought out multiple trainings, including with the founders of ACT, and consultation with leaders in the field. I primarily practice ACT in my private practice serving adults in individual therapy.
Recently, I co-developed an ACT treatment manual with Dr. Patricia Moreno for an on-line, group-based application of ACT for women with metastatic breast cancer, and served as the interventionist for her pilot study. I am a member of ACBS (Association of Contextual and Behavioral Sciences) and served on the board of ACBS Chicago Chapter. I founded the Chicago Loop ACT Consultation group and continually look for ways to bring ACT to the clinical community.
I am passionate about ACT as a treatment modality, and have greatly valued its impact on my life personally and professionally. I aim to deliver ACT trainings that are clear, experiential, clinically relevant, and engaging.
