I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Illinois and Indiana. I have been in practice for twenty years since I graduated from Indiana State University. My early years were spent working in community mental health where I treated a wide variety of concerns. I have also worked in two different university counseling centers and have spent the last seven years in private practice.
I have experience working with individuals, adolescents, couples, families, students and adults suffering from mood disorders, anxiety PTSD, ADHD, parenting/adoption concerns, trauma and abuse, divorce, family conflicts, grief, relationship issues, self-esteem/confidence concerns, lack of coping skills and everyday issues.
My primary therapy orientation is a client-centered approach. I strive to create a non-judgmental, empathetic atmosphere to facilitate healing. I utilize techniques from CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic Therapy, Psychoeducation and other modalities as needed. I believe in helping clients identify and utilize their strengths and maximize their potential. With my experience in a variety of settings, I have accumulated a vast repertoire of skills to draw upon. I am passionate about helping people live their life to the fullest possible extent and overcome any obstacles that prevent healing.
I look forward to working with you!
