About me

I am licensed in Illinois with 20 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, & depression. I have worked from grassroots, community-based programming, to medical and psychiatric, hospital-based social work and discharge planning. I am a professionally certified Forensic Social Worker which have afforded me the opportunity to do some extensive trauma-informed care with residents at the 3rd largest County jail in the country. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! Let’s work together to face whatever challenges; you ready? So am I!
