My Approach to Helping
Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois with over 10 years of professional experience as a nonprofit leader and clinician providing direct services to a diverse population. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression; anxiety; trauma/abuse; adverse child experiences; gender and sexual identity and coming out; and substance use issues. I have received advanced training in evidence-based practices including completing two 40 training modules to work with sexual abuse and assault survivors and survivors of domestic violence.
My counseling style is adapted to the needs of the individual that I am working with. I often use a cognitive-behavioral, strengths-based approach within a trauma-informed and harm reduction framework to help the client I am working with achieve their goals.
