Description of Practice

With offices in Chicago and Wilmette, my mediation practice focuses on family matters specifically divorce and co-parenting related issues. Mediation is empowering, driven by you, at your own pace. It's not only cost-effective but emphasizes minimizing the negative emotional impact and maintaining positive parent-child relationships. I believe mediation can be beneficial to all parties involved.

Professional Background

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have provided psychotherapy services for over 15 years for children, teens, adults, couples and families. I specialized in child therapy, parenting, attachment, adoption, grief/loss, health psychology, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and family conflict and transitions. In addition to mediation, I provide collaborative divorce coaching and child specialist services.


I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Northwestern University and my Master of Social Worker degree with a health focus from the University of Illinois Chicago.
