Meet the Therapist
Welcome! Putting together the pieces of client’s puzzles has been a passion of mine for many years. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with the State of Illinois. I have training in many areas such as Trauma-Focused Therapy, Attachment and Self-Regulation, Depression, Anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Grief and Loss, Domestic Violence, Emotional Dysregulation and I am also a Certified Specialist in Clinical Child and Family Studies.
I have extensive clinical experience working with organizations in Illinois as a Clinical Director, Clinical Behavioral Specialist and a Clinical Therapist over the years and I have been in private practice for over 15 years now. I am a proud member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and Illinois Mental Health Counseling Association (IMHCA).
I believe your experiences form your thought process which then dictates your behaviors, therefore utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a theoretical approach to problem solving increases functioning overall, piece by piece. Having a client-centered approach where the individual is 1st Priority! Is my main objective! this allows a non-judgmental therapeutic relationship where confidentiality is maintained throughout. My experience has taught me that each person is different and should be treated as such, which is why my approach is individually tailored with you in mind!
I welcome you to explore life’s challenges with a warm and compassionate trained therapist who will navigate this journey with you the entire way.
