I’m Ilene, a warm, approachable therapist specializing in anxiety, depression, family relationships and addiction for teenagers, college students, and adults. Life has shown me that personal connections are the foundation of growth and happiness.
Using a holistic approach, I will carefully listen to your needs and use individually tailored methods combined with compassion and skills garnered from 20-plus years as a wife, a mother and a business executive. I love adding mindfulness practices to client sessions, if desired, and focus on creating a safe space for clients to heal and grow.
When working with you or your loved one, I work collaboratively with your other providers and school resources to help ensure we are all working towards achieving the same goals.
