I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois with 7 years of counseling experience working with a variety of populations in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. My specialty is working with individuals who struggle with anxiety and depressive issues, including perinatal mood disorders. I am also trained to help with a myriad of other issues including stress management, relationship issues, career struggles, etc.
I believe strongly in the power and significance of the therapeutic relationship and my main priority is to demonstrate compassion and empathy to the individuals I am working with. Think of this space as a judgement free zone where you are welcome to discuss any thoughts or concerns that you have without worrying about how they might be perceived by others.
Historically, therapy has been heavily focused on the "problem" instead of spending time creating meaningful solutions. My treatment approach is a combination of strength based, solution focused, and positive psychology strategies. I enjoy helping my clients to gain insight and identify their strengths in order to produce a sense of empowerment in all aspects of their life. I look forward to working with you!
