Hello, I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, Florida, and Massachusetts (LICSW/LCSW). I earned a Master of Social Work degree in Advanced Clinical Social Work in Independent Clinical Practice and Health Care Specialization from Aurora University in 2016. I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor and received my CADC in 2021. I have experience working with individuals experiencing symptoms related to anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, stress, life transitions, LGBTQ+ issues, imposter syndrome, low self-esteem, perfectionism, grief, loneliness, ADHD, OCD, trauma, and substance abuse. I use evidence-based practices such as: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), DBT Skills, mindfulness-based therapy, motivational interviewing, talk therapy, exposure therapy, and exposure response prevention (ERP). I want to help people who suffer from mental health and substance use disorders by providing them with compassion, empathy, and evidence- based therapy to help promote resilience, self-compassion, and improve their emotional well-being.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I collaborate with my clients to develop a treatment plan that will help achieve their desired goals. I provide support, compassion, and psychoeducation to my clients.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Through personal challenges and struggles in my life, I realized how important it is to have someone listen to you and support you. Seeking support from others during a difficult time is a strength; not a weakness. We learn how to cope, manage, and heal by sharing our struggles and hardships with others. My mission is to help others achieve their goals and build happiness and resiliency for their life's journey.
