Are you struggling to manage difficult emotions, complex relationships, or daily stressors? We all deserve to live a fulfilling, authentic and healthy life but sometimes we can feel stuck, overwhelmed, or hopeless. Therapy is a tool that empowers us to become the best version of ourselves and assists us in successfully navigating a complex world. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental healing space where we work together as a team to strengthen your talents, develop deeper self-awareness, and implement healthy coping skills to assist you in successfully traversing the ins and outs of day-to-day life.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over decade of experience in providing evidenced based mental health services. I completed my Bachelor of Arts & Sciences at Illinois State University where I graduated with special honors. Following this, I obtained a Master’s In Clinical Psychology from Benedictine University where I also graduated with special honors. Since I graduated I have dedicated the last thirteen years of my carer to providing treatment to individuals from late adolescence to adulthood who are struggling with a wide spectrum of mental health disorders. My range of experience spans residential mental health and detox units, correctional facilities, community based mental health services, and private practice.
I am classically trained in Person-Centered Therapy and specialize in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychoanalytic Therapy. I utilize an eclectic and collaborative approach to treatment based on the individual’s goals, values, and strengths using a trauma informed lens. When I am not at work, I spend my time making art, traveling, hiking, and spending time with my family.
