I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the state of Illinois, and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) in the United States. I hold my Master's Degree in Counseling and Organizational Psychology (MAO), which allows me to work with people on both personal and professional areas of concern and opportunities for growth.
I have spent over 15 years working with individuals, families, couples, and groups as their counselor and coach. My professional journey has allowed me to provide services in a range of settings including community programs, home services, residential treatment facilities, and through an employee assistance program. I have supported people to overcome challenges relating to anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, anger management, parenting, elder care-giving, relationship and family concerns, grief and loss, work-life balance, conflict at work, career changes, and leadership development.
I recognize that people come to counseling for many different reasons, and my job is to meet you where you are and help you to get to where you want to be. I see myself as a partner and supporter in the counseling relationship. I offer ideas and points to consider, but you are ultimately the expert of your life and what you would like it to entail. I understand that talking with someone about challenges you are dealing with can be difficult. That's why it is important to know that those I work with have a safe environment to process through those challenging times and have an objective, neutral person there who is not judging them. I enjoy seeing all the success that can come from overcoming that fear, and making time to care for oneself. Whether you are working through a difficult time, or looking to grow to a new level of you, I am here to walk with you in your journey.
You have taken a wonderful first step in reaching out. Whatever brought you here, you can overcome. I look forward to working with you!

Amy has been incredible. She gives amazing advice and is a great listener. She understands my goals and is able to provide amazing information that tend to my needs and wants. Every session she has given me an incredible new perspective on on how to handle any curveballs that life has thrown at me. Highly recommend!
Amy is truly amazing. She listens to everything I say and is able to offer an objective and helpful point of view. She constantly challenges me to get to the root of my responses and reactions and has given me many helpful tips and pieces of advice that I’ve implemented into my daily life. She checks in with me between live sessions, and always responds quickly and thoroughly. Her objective point of view offers me insight into other people’s potential motives and intentions, and I find that helpful when dealing with conflicts or disagreements. Amy listens to my perspective and explanations wholeheartedly and without judgment. She keeps me focused on my goals and celebrates all of my little victories with me. In only 3 weeks, Amy has shifted my perspective and given me a new positive outlook on my life and my future,
Any is everything I want in a counselor and I couldn’t be more happy with my decision to begin better help.
She’s great, really attentive always checks in.
