About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I graduated with a Masters, with honors, from the University of Illinois at Chicago's Jane Addams Social Work Program. I have been working in the field of social work for 7 years; acquiring certifications in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), Crisis Prevention, and Harm Reduction. I believe strongly in the mind + body connection and value the importance of physical exercise in conjunction with talk therapy. Ask me about Yoga Therapy!
I specialize in client-centered therapy for individuals, couples, and families. I work with children, teenagers, and adults in coping with anxiety, anger control, behavior disorders, depression, difficult life changes, eating disorders, impulse control, relationships and sexuality, self-esteem, and grief. It's easy to be overcome with the negative, let's discover the positive.
We are all presented with many challenges and hardships in life and with our advancing technology it is easy to distract and overstimulate ourselves. You are not alone in feeling anxious, depressed, or over-stressed. We can work through these hardships together and help you to get back to the present moment.
