About me

Hi, I’m Neil

I’m a Lacanian analyst and psychotherapist who sees patients in person or online. My office is located in Downers Grove IL, which is a western suburb of Chicago.

I’m also a social worker and assistant professor working at the Aurora University School of Social Work.

I teach in the Masters (MSW) and Doctorate (DSW) programs. A full version of my CV can be viewed here.
