About me

A wise person once told me “Finding the right therapist is like trying on shoes. Your pick needs to have support in the right places and you’ll know you’ve made the right choice by how they make you feel.”

I couldn’t agree more!

Please allow me to thank you for reading my profile and allowing me to tell you a little more about my service to others.
I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois with over 14 years of experience working with children and families. Much of my background comes from serving school-aged children with a variety of different abilities. This also includes providing support to parents to find programming, services, and interventions for their children’s social-emotional needs. I have provided therapy to those experiencing anxiety, depression, discord in personal relationships, ADHD, Autism, and issues resulting from trauma and abuse.

One of the foundations of my therapeutic practice is building upon the strengths of my client.  I believe that everyone has many skills that can help them create the life and experiences they desire. I also help clients uncover behavior and thought patterns that are causing distress or impairing their interactions or abilities.

I am grateful for your time and commitment to the goals we will develop together.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you’d think we’d be a good fit!
