My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Illinois. I received a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Jane Addams College of Social Work with a concentration in mental health in 2000. I have both medical social work experience as well as mental health experience and I like to incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, motivational interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy in my work.
I am also a Reiki Master and believe strongly in the mind-body connection and the benefits of meditation and practicing mindfulness. I have a passion for meeting people where they are and helping them learn how to reduce stressors to feel better. In my free time I enjoy reading, meditating, crocheting as well as camping and traveling with my family.
