About me

I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in Illinois and Missouri, with 24 years of professional psychotherapy experience with adults, adolescents and children, in individual and group settings. I obtained my Masters in Social Work from Indiana University. I have expertise in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with grief and loss, depression, cancer/life threatening illness, and other major life changes in relationships and work.

I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal, and solution focused therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
