My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) at Portrait Health Centers in Rockford, Illinois. My passion involves helping people find practical, positive solutions to the issues they face. I offer a confidential, judgment-free environment in which you can safely explore your concerns and find acceptance for the person you are.
I am experienced in working with teenagers, adults, and groups who are seeking to regain control or rebuild after a life-changing event. I have worked with individuals who range in age from 5 to 87 years old. I generally utilize techniques from dialectical behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy when treating individuals with bipolar issues, adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, personality issues, or addiction.
My approach is holistic and takes each aspect of your being into account. My objective is to help you harness your strengths and learn effective coping skills that will help you live a healthier, happier life.
