About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Illinois with 10 years of experience working in the fields of hospice, oncology and geriatrics. I have spent a great deal of time with families as they navigate these difficult life transitions, focusing on coping skills and grief. My counseling style is warm, interactive and laid back. I have a big soft spot for my caregivers. I believe in being open and treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!
