Feeling numb, lost, stuck, or that we have lost control of our thoughts or our relationships can be a frustrating and aggravating, to say the least.
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I offer a nonjudgmental, welcoming space where I assist my clients in navigating the many challenges we face every day.
I specialize in couples work (including LGBTQIA+, Poly, Kink Positive, marital, pre-marital, and divorce counseling), family work (including parenting, parents with young children, teens & pre-teens, and parents with adult children), and individual work (including clients dealing with anxiety, depression, emotional, physical, or sexual trauma, unhealthy communication or relational patterns, and goal coaching).
I support and encourage my clients to identify goals, and break these goals down into small, daily habits & techniques that help them live their most authentic lives, which helps us feel like we are getting the most out of our days, and out of life. I also help my clients identify, track, and measure the progress they are making, and identify early signs that focal shifts or changes are needed.
I have been working passionately over the last 10 years in Illinois, Michigan & Spain with individuals, couples and families. I speak Spanish as a second language, and I use a combination of neuroscience, the Gottman Method, DBT, CBT, PCIT, holistic health & psychoanalytical theories to help my clients, couples & families live up to their full potential.
