"I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Illinois. I graduated from Adler University where I received a master’s in clinical mental health counseling. I have worked in private practice, community mental health, and outpatient hospital settings to support individuals, couples, and families in navigating the stressors of life. I believe everyone needs and deserves a safe space to address barriers preventing them from navigating through life the way they desire, thus I seek to foster safe and comfortable environments for those oppressed and marginalized. Living in unprecedented times, it is especially important to have support, awareness, and knowledge of effective coping skills to manage the stressors of life. I believe it’s also important to process the lives we’ve already experienced and explore how this cultivates our current worldview.
Utilizing Adlerian Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Person- Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy I’ve developed an eclectic approach to therapy because no individual is like another. You are, however, the expert on you and I hope to serve as a guide collaborating with you to achieve your health and wellness goals by developing a trusting therapeutic relationship.
I have experience working with teens, adults, couples, and families. I also have extensive experience working with those suffering from anxiety, depression, substance abuse, phase of life issues and transitions. To accommodate your schedule, I offer evening and weekend hours."
