19 years of experience

I will support you with empathy and understanding. We all come from different walks of life and I find it’s important to meet people where they are. I will take into account your life experiences, background, and personality when developing a treatment plan, collaborating with you to identify your needs and goals, while empowering you to achieve a more satisfying and fulfilled life. I will help you gain insight into your stress, as well as negative thought patterns and habits and help you implement cognitive behavioral skills to change them. I graduated with a master’s degree in counseling from Loyola University Chicago and have nearly 20 years of clinical experience working in a variety of settings, treating clients of all ages who have experienced depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, low self worth, relationships issues, poor boundaries, and more. I have 4 dogs, 3 mini goldendoodles and a golden retriever I rescued from Turkey.

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

In our first session together, we'll start with introductions and then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help us collaborate on an individualized plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

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

Empathy and understanding, combined with mindfulness, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavior therapy, and ways to manage stressors/anxiety help me to identify the root cause of your challenges and create an individualized plan that leads to measurable progress.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is a powerful way to challenge those unhelpful/maladaptive thoughts that lead to feelings of depression and anxiety. This modality focuses on thoughts, emotions and behaviors and if we are able to reframe our thoughts, that can help us settle our emotions and help things feel more manageable. Same with taking a look at some behaviors that are maladaptive or problematic; if we're able to target behaviors we want to change, that can then lead to better feeling thoughts and emotions.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness does not equal meditation, but rather, being more mindful and in the present moment, we are not trying to borrow from our past (feelings of depression) or borrow from our future (anxiety). Staying in the present moment and focusing on what you can do in the here in now helps us live a more fulfilling life. Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing often can be precursors to Cognitive Behavior Therapy, in that the more we increase our awareness, the better equipped we are to make changes in the present moment.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is like guided discovery, helping you to resolve any ambivalence or insecurities that come with making changes, whether big or small. This modality supports you in finding the internal motivation and lends empathy and practicality when considering making life changes. In other words, I meet you where you're at with empathy and understanding.
