About Me

First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to read my profile and for seeking help as you progress through this time in your life. A little about me, I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana and Illinois. I have 3 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with many different people with many different concerns. I have aided in progress with individuals that are depressed, anxious and having a hard time adjusting or have experienced severe trauma.

My hope is for every client to feel heard and welcomed. My style is warm and questioning. I tend to help clients connect all of the information themselves and then develop a plan that will prove to be beneficial for their life and situations. My approach is cognitive behavioral with reality and solution focused therapy. I will work with the client so that treatment is individualized and unique.
