Hello! My name is Dominique and I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Illinois. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings where I have served youth and families, young adults and for the past 10 years school-aged children. While I served young people in this role, services to their adult caregivers were key to client success.
I earned my Master’s in social work from Southern Illinois Carbondale and I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis’ Brown School of Social Work. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to serve as a White House intern under the Obama Administration, developing a deeper understanding around the complexities of social issues within the United States.
I would describe my therapy style as non-judgmental, empathetic, friendly, supportive, and warm. My therapeutic approach is person-centered, and I work collaboratively with the client to achieve their desired goals through a variety of tailored evidence-based treatment modalities.
-Cultural humility, as well as compassionate and confidential care, are essential to effective counseling
-Clients voices should be heard, and their needs validated
-Clients possess the power and the ability to make necessary change in order that they may live abundant, peaceful, and purpose-filled lives.
I am so very happy that you have taken the step to find support in reaching your goals for overall wellness and I am grateful for the opportunity to support you in your journey.

Dominique is an excellent therapist. I enjoy our sessions and appreciate how thoughtful she is when considering my needs. She is a great listener and very quickly helped me identify my growth opportunities. She is gentle but nudges me in the right direction to become the person that I want to be with an action plan and goals for myself. I am very happy with my therapy experience so far, and would highly recommend Dominique as a counselor if you are looking for someone who is easy to talk to, perceptive, and invested in your success and wellbeing.
