My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed professional counselor in Algonquin, IL currently accepting new clients. I have experience in working with kids, preteens, teens, adults, couples, and families. My passion is to come alongside those who are struggling and help them find the tools, encouragement, and hope that they need.

I approach counseling from a very compassionate and person-centered mindset. I also love to teach practical tools and coping skills that can empower you to grow.

My specialties include working with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, life changes, and parenting.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you get started on your counseling journey.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I work a lot with anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. I also especially love working with teens and the particular issues and challenges they face.

I am also here to help you navigate changes in your life or new transitions - whether you are just entering parenthood, your kids are becoming teenagers or going away to college, or you are a young adult facing the world of college and work for the first time.
