My Approach to Helping

With over twenty years of experience, as a board-certified LCSW, I have helped thousands of people find their way to an incredible life filled with purpose, love, and happiness. By utilizing the client's inherent strengths and building on them to find solutions to challenges that help the client create their unique path. I earned my Bachelors of Science at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, acquired my Masters in Social Work in 1993 from Loyola University in Chicago, and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 1996 specializing in individual, couples, and family clinical therapy. My mission is to create a safe, caring, and nonjudgmental space for you to strengthen your courage, illuminate the hurdles and boulders, reveal your wisdom, transform your life and get back on your path.
