My Approach to Helping

Everyone needs someone to talk to, especially when things seem out of our control or in constant flux. My goal is to understand each client from a non-judgmental stance and establish a trusting relationship that provides support, empathy, integrity, and genuineness. I focus on the strengths of each individual in order to help develop each client to reach their full potential. I believe that while everyone has bad days and negativity, with help, each and every person can become the conduit to solve our own problems. I can help clients reach goals, face challenges, and assist them in developing unique skills to help in times of need in order to foster a better future. My goal is to utilize an integrative counseling approach that is tailored to the individual client and concentrates on the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of the client. I understand that while it can be difficult to reach out, each client has already begun their journey by finding the right counseling fit for them.

More Info About My Practice

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and History from Lake Forest College and my Master’s degree from National Louis University. I also currently work as a school-based counselor for Rosecrance.

I have been practicing counseling and therapy for five years and I love what I do. I like to spend my time cooking, going to the gym, spending time with my family, and playing video games. I am very optimistic and outgoing with a high level of energy. I aim to be a positive role model and try to be better at something than I was the day before.
