About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois who has worked in a variety of settings in the last eight years. These settings include working with clients who are living with serious mental health issues, dementia, bariatric issues, and medical issues. I have worked with clients who have depression, anxiety, parenting problems, ADHD, relationship issues, and communication problems. I have also worked with individuals who are experiencing substance abuse issues, physical trauma, sexual trauma. One of my main clinical areas is working with males who have sexual trauma.

I believe that it is the relationship between the therapist and the client that empowers the client to make changes. As a result, I believe strongly in being yourself in therapy (whatever that may mean to you). Therapeutic interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, etc. are tools that drive conversations during the session; however, real change occurs when a client feels that they can be themselves and be open, honest, and willing to explore life to the fullest. This means that I put your goals and objectives first.

Everyone needs help at times. I believe that with the right support and tools individuals can accomplish their goals. If you are willing to take the first step towards change, I am ready to help you on your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

Very kind

Fantastic therapist, I was failed time and time again by the VA. I finally got in with betterhelp and am on my way to a happier life. Cameron is a great listener, and provides advise in a non authoritative way. He's helped me see things I would have never saw on my own and supported my complex recovery. After a few sessions it felt like I was talking to a friend. Intelligent and caring. Highly recommend as a therapist.
