My experience over the years has taught me that change is always possible and that people are extraordinarily resilient.

Compassion paired with years of providing psychotherapy helps me to help you achieve goals, reduce symptoms, improve relationships and gain balance in your life. I will work collaboratively with you.

Private practice has been my work setting for many years although I have also had the opportunity to work in an agency setting as well as an at-risk youth program. I received my graduate degree from Benedictine University, in Lisle, Illinois. Benedictine, coupled with my addictions certification and active professional organization membership provides me with a strong foundation in both knowledge and skills.

I am committed to life-long growth as a professional through continuing education in tools such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT). Guiding clients through difficult emotions and difficult situations is a source of great fulfillment for me. Cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic approaches assist me in helping people gain a better understanding of their past and how it affects the present.

Whomever you choose, please do not suffer in silence.
