My Approach to Helping
I believe and work by the philosophy that counseling is a partnership between you and I. I will empower, encourage, and support you in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
I offer therapy services for all ages, from toddler to elder adult. I specialize in different topics such as Christian counseling, depression, anxiety, couplesmarriage issues, and parenting. I am especially skilled in:
Divorce Support: Divorce can be a difficult event in anyone’s life. I make sure all voices in the family are given the chance to express their feelings in a controlled environment. The parents are not the only ones involved, the children have a huge emotional impact on the change and it can be difficult to navigate without a therapist.
Coping with Grief: Losing a loved one to death or to a divorce, you need to grieve the life before. I offer my expertise to help you get through what may be the worst time in your life so you can once again breathe.
Women’s Issues: Parenting, relationships, and what is “expected” of you. There are a lot of issues that can come up that are specific for women. Society puts more pressure on parenting correctly and maintaining a household without complaint, but it’s okay to feel overwhelmed. I offer sessions to find a happy position in your life to positively impact your future.
I use an eclectic approach to therapy, which includes Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), talk therapy, and holistic therapy. My main goal in each session is to improve the quality of your life and your relationships with others.
I earned my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Concordia University Chicago. I have worked in corporate positions for over a decade and understand time management and the support single mothers need. When I am outside of the office, I enjoy being with family and friends, working out and walking my two dogs. My self-care routines often include reading, kayaking, and meditating.
