I want you to know that I am here and appreciate the anxieties and/or hesitation in beginning the therapeutic journey. I want to tell you to trust how you feel in the room with someone and to take your time in finding what works for you. I also would like the opportunity to help and have the tools to do so. Together, we can figure out some things and help find you relief. It can get better. You are enough and everything you need may already be inside of you—we just may need to help you bring it out.

Hi! I’m Liz. I’m an experienced and compassionate therapist in the Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago. I work with a variety of clients, but central to all my therapeutic relationships is the belief that everyone has the potential to feel and function better and more effectively than they think. Whatever may be troubling you, I will hold space for you while working collaboratively to get at the roots of what may be making your life harder than it needs to be. I am very casual and use humor abundantly, so sitting down with a total stranger and discussing your innermost self isn’t nearly as hard as it might seem. I’d love to meet you!

Hi there, I believe that everyone has their own inner ‘garden,’ which has the potential to be bountiful, beautiful, and serene. If we want to maintain our gardens and have them represent the most beautiful aspects of our lives, we need to nourish them and water them regularly. Keeping our gardens beautiful and vibrant does take work, but it is work that makes life more joyous and manageable. I view psychotherapy as a practice that can help you to support your garden so that it, and you, can flourish. Helping individuals and families tend to their gardens, remove weeds, and plant new seeds: this is my greatest purpose.

I look forward to helping you manifest your garden.

I strongly value establishing a safe, empathic, and genuine therapeutic connection. With that in place, therapy can be a rich opportunity to let your guard down, feel heard and understood, and prioritize your care for yourself. My approach is collaborative, insight oriented, and focused on helping you better understand yourself and express your needs in a healthy way. I strive to help you understand how your past experiences may contribute to expectations you have for yourself, how you communicate, and how you care for yourself. Together we can work to help you develop alternate and more adaptive ways to manage stressors, connect with others, and make meaningful change.
