About me

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) licensed in Illinois with over 16 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and PTSD/trauma. I have a specialization in working with victims of crime (physical/sexual abuse and traumatic grief and loss) as well as law enforcement/military members and their significant others and children.

My counseling style is direct, warm, and collaborative. I believe in treating anyone with dignity, respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapies. I am trained in Gottman and EMDR. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs and believe therapy works best when we work together with you being the expert in your life.

It takes courage to take the first step towards seeking help to make changes to lead a happier and more fulfilling life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support, encourage, and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
