13 years of experience

Hello! I welcome you to take a look at my profile. I love what I do, which is helping people, one person at a time. I am an LCSW in Illinois and Texas and have been an LCSW since 2010. I received my Masters of Social Work (MSW) in 2005. I have various experiences in mental health counseling, child welfare, corrections, training of social workers and some adjunct teaching. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families. I use a range of modalities, from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing, and in general, I am a good listener. I look forward to working with you!

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

In our first session, we will get to know each other with brief introductions and finding out some background information about you. I will also ask you what brings you to see therapy. Some people have very specific issues, some people just need a place to sort some things out.

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

I am a good listener and, strong problem-solver, and if I do not know something, I will get answers or make a referral.
