About Teri

"What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are just (small) matters compared to what lies within us."

   - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have been in private practice for 20 years.  My clinical approach from the start of my practice has been to create an atmosphere where my clients feel understood, respected and listened to.  Each individual has their own story to tell with their own unique set of circumstances. I believe that by providing an alliance where one can explore their various emotions, questions, doubts and fears will lead to internal healing, growth and change. As we work together my clients experience a greater sense of peace, happiness and fulfillment in their lives.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed? Has life lost its meaning? Are you having trouble in your marriage or other relationships? Struggling with addiction (of any sort), or are you in the midst of loss/grief? Overeating, bingeing/purging or have a poor body image? Do you need a greater sense of self confidence/self-esteem? Wish you could better understand your child or spouse? These are just a few of the areas that I specialize in. Together we will find your answers and a better way to live. There is ALWAYS hope!

I am a Psychotherapist, Counselor and Life Coach, serving the Chicagoland area who has a private practice in the western suburbs serving Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills,  Oak Brook, Westmont, Western Springs, Downers Grove, Naperville, LaGrange, Oak Park and the surrounding communities. I also do phone sessions for clients outside of the Chicagoland area, including out of state clients. In my practice I provide caring and confidential counseling for individuals, couples and families.
