I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I received a B.S. in Liberal Arts and and M.S. in Criminal Justice from Excelsior University and an M.A. in Social Work from the University of Chicago. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers. For the past several years, my practice has focused at the intersection of trauma, addiction, and mental health.
Congratulations on taking this big step in your mental health journey – seeking therapy. Whether you are struggling with worry, sadness, work-related stress, substance use issues, relationship difficulties, or emotions resulting from traumatic experience(s), I offer a supportive ear and a nonjudgmental environment in which we can work together to identify and implement strategies to move you toward your goals. I strive to assist clients in fully exploring their emotions in an environment characterized by compassion, acceptance, and safety.
I take a holistic view of each person and consider the physical, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual components of well-being. I feel strongly that connection with values facilitates growth and satisfaction. I am particularly interested in partnering with my clients as they seek to better understand and apply their values.
I offer teletherapy services in Illinois, Indiana, Texas, and Connecticut. If I can support you in making meaningful change in your life, I would love to talk with you about how we can work together.
