My Approach to Helping

Everyone has the potential and ability to make positive changes in order to improve their mental and physical state of being. I can help you explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions that will encourage self-awareness and can lead you to a more productive and satisfying way of life.

I focus on the present and address clients' histories in ways that can promote a greater understanding of how past experiences contribute to who they are today. My approach is open and non-judgmental that provides an encouraging, positive, and hopeful atmosphere.

My practice offers not only in-office sessions, but also if you prefer, we can walk and talk on Elmhurst's beautiful Prairie Path or wherever you feel comfortable walking. Please see my website for more information on Walk and Talk Therapy!
