About me

I hope this finds you well.

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) in IL with many years of experience working in mental health counseling. I have worked with a diverse range of clients dealing with a variety of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-esteem, as well as relationship concerns. I have also helped many clients experiencing minority stress and or minority trauma. I approach therapy with a sensitivity and predilection for multicultural factors.

I have varied experience in multiple settings, including providing individual and group therapy at an inpatient hospital unit and an outpatient hospital unit; as well as providing individual and couples therapy at a private practice. I would describe my style as conversational, strengths based, insight-oriented, and fun. I am dedicated to creating a safe space for us to explore and gain insight while promoting self empowerment.

My clinical approach draws from Gestalt therapy and also incorporates Solution-Focused and mindfulness interventions. With me you can expect to be challenged to explore the origin of your problems, develop new awareness, identify pattern behaviors, work through unfinished business and create new strategies for change. Overall, I want to meet you where you’re at and collaborate to make sure our time together works best for you and your needs.

I value your courage in taking the next steps on your path to wellness. When you are ready, I am here to support and empower you along your journey.

Troy was an incredible therapist. He helped me work through my divorce and depression because of the marriage. He provided me with ways to reflect on the past and how to move beyond the past. I did not think therapy would work for me until I met Troy. I would highly recommend Troy to anyone trying to figure out how to cope with a situation and how to look forward to the future.
