I know making the decision to seek professional care can be difficult. I offer a safe, comfortable setting where you can explore your concerns and find relief. Therapy is about making positive changes and experiencing personal growth. As we work together in each session, we will build a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship that empowers you and helps you develop the emotional resilience and flexibility to succeed in your life.

My counseling style is person-centered and respectful. I am genuinely interested in hearing your story, your goals, and your motivations. I employ holistic techniques from a variety of empirically-supported modalities such as acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, psychodynamic approaches, and solution-focused therapy.

I respect the fact that you are the expert on your own life. By working closely together, we can develop the ideal map to assist you on your journey to better health and lasting happiness.

More Info About My Practice

I earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Northeastern Illinois University. I am currently earning certification as an alcohol and drug counselor. My professional experience includes providing care for couples, individuals, and groups in substance use treatment and the partner abuse intervention program (PAIP). I am a registered member of the Illinois Counseling Association, the American Counseling Association, the Illinois Adult Aging and Development Association, and the Illinois Mental Health Counselors Association.

I enjoy a good story, whether in a movie or book. I love learning about new people, places, and ideas. I also love to spend time with my family and friends. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, growing vegetables, and taking my daily 5-mile walk.
