My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois. I completed a Master of Social Work degree in Advanced Clinical Social Work in Independent Clinical Practice and Health Care Specialization from Aurora University in 2016. I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor and received my CADC in 2021. I have experience working with individuals experiencing symptoms related to anxiety, stress, depression, bipolar disorder, low self-esteem, grief, life transitions, OCD, self-injury, trauma, and substance abuse. I use evidenced-based therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapy, motivational interviewing, and exposure therapy.
I want to help people who suffer from mental health and substance use disorders by providing them with compassion, empathy, and evidenced-based therapy to help promote resilience, self-compassion, and improve their behavioral health and emotional well-being.
