Curiosity Empathy Playfulness Acceptance Persistence
No matter how we work, these are the qualities you can expect from me. I have cultivated them over 30 years of therapeutic practice.
Who I Am
I grew up in Western Michigan. I earned a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) from Michigan State University School of Social Work. I have worked with individuals and families in private practice and in not-for-profit family services agencies in Michigan, Washington, Illinois, and Alberta, Canada. I am licensed to practice in Illinois as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). My wife and I live and work in Hyde Park on the South Side of Chicago.
Services & Pricing
I work with adolescents, adults, and elders.
You have a choice to work with me by phone, secure video conferencing, or in person.
My initial session is free of charge. The Fee for services will be negotiated with you at that time. You will decide on a value for the outcome and we will then construct a payment plan.
I do not bill medical insurances. If you would like to bill your insurance, I will supply you with the appropriate receipts that will include a mental-health diagnosis.
You reach out and I will reach back.
