About me

Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker with 5 years of experience in the therapy field. I graduated with a Master of Social Work degree from Aurora University in 2018, and have a diverse employment history working with many individuals ranging all ages, as well as a variety of mental and developmental diagnoses.

I came into the field with the hope to make a difference and help others overcome obstacles in their lives. Being a social worker I come from a strengths based perspective; I believe everyone has their strengths and challenges, and it is my goal to help you recognize your own personal qualities and provide you with the tools to use those to address problems or make positive changes in your life.

In my therapy practice, I strive to build strong relationships with my clients while offering a safe, nonjudgmental, and welcoming environment for you to be yourself and feel comfortable. I look forward to meeting you!
