About me

I am an Army Veteran, licensed clinical professional counselor, and national certified counselor through the NBCC with over 6 years of direct individual/group practice licensed in Illinois and overall 10 years of experience working as a crisis, substance use, and mental health counselor in the field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and substance use. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is very welcoming and inviting. I believe in honoring the values of respect, sensitivity, compassion, empathy and embracing a holistic point of view to promote mental wellness. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, dialectical-behavioral, existential and CRA counseling. I will customize our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to make the steps towards a more fulfilling and happier life and embrace change. If you are ready to take that leap into a healthier mind, body, and soul, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you in your new journey!
