About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Illinois with over 30 years of experience.
Healing is a unique journey of transformation toward Wholeness, Peacefulness, and Happiness. I listen with full attention to show you compassion, empathy and care in a safe, confidential relationship. Your integrity will be respected. Whether you work on Depression, Grief, Relationships, LGBTQ+ issues or Faith/Spirituality/Religious concerns, we will journey toward healing of body, mind and spirit. Healing happens in connection,, so we can also focus on healing relationships with family and friends, and your support system. You will receive and assessment and a plan and together we can explore enhancing and expanding your awareness and your support systems.
With specialized education in Religion, Spirituality and Psychology, I can help you integrate these powerful sources of healing to improve your life. Your beliefs, life situation and Gender orientation are respected, and honored as pathways to transformation.
I meet people where they are, without judging.
