10 years of experience

I am licensed in Illinois with over 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, trauma and abuse, & eating disorders. I have worked with both adults and adolescent, empowering my clients to advocate for themselves both within the therapeutic relationship and in their other relationships. I believe that authenticity is an essential tool in the therapeutic process. I use an integrative approach with a focus on Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I work with my clients to identify what their meaningful life looks like and to set goals that will move them towards that meaningful life. I look forward to working with you!

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

I believe in an individualized and collaborative treatment approach. In our first session, we will work together to develop and prioritize treatment goals and create a plan for therapy. I believe in engaging my clients in interactive sessions that allow for expression of emotions and development of skills.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Dialectical Behavior Therapy with Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE) for trauma

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

When working with clients, I strive to provide a safe and compassionate environment that inspires openness and willingness to make changes. I am passionate about being a resource for my clients to help guide them towards the life they envision.
