Hi. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I want perspective clients to know I genuinely care about the people I work with, and have a passion for joining people on their journey to a new self. The fact that you are searching for a therapist shows you would like something to change. This is very brave. We often lose perspective about situations and how we deal with them. This can be a result of things we have buried from our past, or relationships that did not support us in the way we need. I will give you a safe and supportive place to look at your unwelcome patterns and find a way to make your journey more fulfilling. My counseling focus is on adolescents and adults. My philosophy is client-centered, Mindfulness based, trauma informed, and goal oriented. I have training and experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness. My areas of focus include trauma, attachment issues, difficulties with distress tolerance and emotional regulation, along with families dealing with Alzheimer's. Your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are what make you who you are. As we work together to understand these parts of you, we will find a way to alter those thoughts that no longer work for you and strengthen those that are helping you become who you wish to be.

I have experience with clients in inpatient and outpatient scenarios as well as community mental health, group homes and private practice. I have been seeing client virtually for many years, but have been exclusively virtual since the start of Covid. Overall I work with a wide variety of issues, such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, women's issues, anger management, low self-esteem and most other common issues of the current times. I also seek out working with individuals who have chronic health issues, as they have their own elements that need to be considered. I have a laid back, calming style, and provide thoughtful feedback . I enjoy getting to know my clients so I can make personalized suggestions and play to people's strengths. On a personal note I live in the Chicago far west suburbs and have four either grown or near grown children whom were adopted from Guatemala.
