Everyone is different so there is no “one therapy fits all.” I develop treatment
plans that are tailored for you. I use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT),
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance, and Commitment Therapy
(ACT), person-centered therapy, and strengths-based therapy. I have
previously worked with adolescents, adults, seniors, the LGBTQ+ population,
minorities, and those struggling with depression, anxiety, and grief and loss.
I have a Bachelor of Arts with a Social Work degree from Hope College and a
Master of Social Work degree from Aurora University. I specialize in working with adolescents struggling with behavioral disorders, adults & senior citizens in both individual and group therapy settings.
While living in a quickly changing and stressful world, we can find ourselves
experiencing disruptive emotions. I provide a safe therapeutic environment to
help you reach your goals. I can provide short-term solution-focused work or
an environment to explore and address larger stressors in your life.
I offer a person-centered, strengths-based, and empathic approach to therapy. I understand each individual is an expert in their own life; therefore, I follow your lead. I provide a safe environment to explore emotions, thoughts, and behaviors while working with you to identify your strengths, values, and goals. As a therapist, I develop coping skills with you to empower you to live your best life.
I have in-person session availability on Wednesdays from 2 PM to 7 PM. To
schedule an in-person session please call the front desk at (312) 546-4193
I look forward to meeting you!
