About Me

Hi, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, with over 15 years of therapy experience and a lifetime of wisdom to draw from, which is invaluable! I can offer clients a holistic psychotherapeutic approach using person-centered, solution-focused therapy. I work with adult women, men, and couples; LGBTQ welcome. Recovery & Addictions; Depression and Anxiety issues, self-identity and self-respect lifestyles, relationships, and interpersonal situations (vocational, career).

Witnessing the effects of suicide, I support the Prevention of Suicide through education and talking about suicide openly with all age groups.
In working with clients and their families, I have discovered several techniques to address resistance and opposition towards change. Through the use of an eclectic approach utilizing CBT, Person-Centered, and Mindfulness, I identify and focus on maladaptive coping skills and gear therapy toward the development of new healthy and effective ways of dealing with life issues.

Even though I've only seen Patricia twice, I liked her from the first few minutes of our initial meeting. I feel very comfortable with her and hope to continue my journey to a better me with her.
