I entered this field because I wanted to help others. I know that sounds cliché, but it is true. There is nothing more exciting than helping people discover their potential, find peace in a chaotic world, and achieve life goals. I believe in teaching people about actual self-care so that they do not have to rely on commercial self-care as an escape from their reality. Most of all, I believe that in building a trusting, nonjudgmental, safe therapeutic relationship where clients can process adverse experiences and move forward, effectively navigating life’s problems. Therapy is a safe place for a client to remove the masks that we all wear and begin to heal. For this to happen, I believe in providing a space of understanding, empathy, active listening, and kindness. I strive to teach people the coping tools they need to not only heal, but have the happy, meaningful life that they deserve. My goal is to support my clients through active listening and helping them reach their goals. As a therapist who is client centered, I believe in individualized treatment, tailored to fit your needs. I have experience working with clients in many areas, including depression, anxiety, mood disorders, personality disorders, addiction, and adjustment to major life experiences, trauma, and much more. I utilize a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) approach, but also include other modalities such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based interventions, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and process-oriented therapy, to name a few. I use motivational interviewing to help clients explore their motivation to change and empower them to understand their ability to build the life they want. I have been employed in several different treatment settings including community mental health, inpatient treatment, in-home therapy services, crisis line work, and partial hospitalization. I earned my M.H.S. in Addiction Studies, mental health counseling concentration, in 2018 from Governors State University. I am fully licensed as an LCPC and certified as an alcohol and drug counselor (CADC). I have 7 years of experience in the field and have held positions as a case manager, therapist, inpatient group therapist, crisis intervention staff, and supervisor of intake and assessment. Everyone has the ability for change, and that everyone deserves the chance to build a life that is meaningful, purposeful, and peaceful. I would love the opportunity to help you on that journey.
