About me

I am happy that you have taken the first step to make life a little different!
I understand how life can be challenging, yet also fulfilling and joyful from the inside out. We are all worthy of love and belonging, and we will work together to find the best fit.
None of us are alone in any this, and it may be surprising to see how we all help each other at the same time.
In addition, each one of us has our own struggles. We also have our own strengths to overcome these barriers and make life worth living!
I respect that you know yourself the best, and I look forward to helping you tap into your own strengths get to where you want to be, one piece at a time.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and live in Northern Illinois. I have helped people get in the right state of mind to enjoy life since my first job at age 15 years old.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Recreation and a Masters Degree in Social Work. Even more, I have many experiences in both areas and combine them to brighten life for everyone involved. My goal is to make the most out of each day, starting now.
