I take an eclectic approach to client wellness and honor your work life, family traditions, sexual orientation – as well as your cultural & spiritual beliefs.
To encourage personal empowerment, I often ask questions that are designed to stir new thinking.
Through collaboration, positive change and healing are possible.

Men’s Problems and Issues
I specialize in helping guys with men problems, including anxiety and stress. Together, we will explore your issues and find practical solutions that work best for your situation.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is primarily used to help move through negative thinking. I also help men to increase self-confidence through skill building exercises, guided imagery, and mindfulness based hypnotherapy.
And while men’s issues are my specialty, I do work with women and people from all walks of life.

Hypnotherapy in Chicago
Therapeutic hypnosis, sometimes called clinical hypnosis or hypnotherapy, offers you the ability to reduce fears, anxiety, negative thinking, or bad habits.
Through hypnosis, you can condition yourself to improve your performance, boost self-confidence, desensitize fears, etc.
While there are many counselors, hypnotists and coaches in Chicago, I take pride in offering a caring and nurturing style of hypnotherapy.
When you do self-improvement work, it is critical that you are doing it with a trained specialist who really cares about your results.
I use a solution focused approach and believe in whole person wellness. Everything we talk about is confidential with serviced offered in an affirming, non-judgmental, and safe environment.
