Hello, I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who works with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families with over 15 years of experience in the psychology/counseling field. My focus is to provide a comfortable and supportive atmosphere in order to help individuals improve their lives through education, insight and change.
I received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Loyola University Chicago and a master’s degree in Psychology (Human Development) from National-Louis University. I also have a post master’s graduate certificate in Counseling.
I emphasize the importance of a highly personalized approach, tailored to each of my client’s individual needs, in order to attain positive growth. I practice a variety of treatment options including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Structured Teaching, relaxation training and couple/family therapy techniques. Areas of focus I have special training and experience includes: Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention Deficit Disorder with and without Hyperactivity, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, social skills issues, school/behavioral issues, as well as parent/child conflict resolution.
I also work with individuals who are dealing with general mental illness, depression, stress management, adjustment disorders, substance abuse, parenting & life skills, and relationship issues. Besides private practice, I have had experience working in various settings such as behavioral health hospital (in-patient & out-patient), non-profit Autism Resource Agency, residential treatment, various school settings, and state youth corrections. I am a member in good standing with The Illinois Counseling Association and The Illinois Mental Health Counselors Association.
