About Me

I am a therapist licensed in Illinois. I have over 30 years of experience and have helped many individuals of all ages to overcome obstacles and reach their potential. I believe it is important to treat everyone with respect and to guide them in the therapeutic process. I believe in starting where the client wants to start and establishing goals for solution-based therapy. I have worked with many clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, and trauma. I also am a school social worker and understand the constant challenges and obstacles that teens encounter. I believe in helping youth to find their identity and voice.

I look forward to starting this process with you!
