I consider it a privilege to help you make the changes you desire in your life. My professional and personal experience has shown me that the issues which cause us pain and discomfort are often the very ones which allow each of us to evolve and become the people we are meant to be. I will assist you in developing healthier, more satisfying relationships. I look forward to giving you effective strategies to manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, self-doubt and unwellness. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois where I earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology at Northwestern University. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Miami University. I want you to know that you are not alone. I use a collaborative, strengths-based, and solution-focused approach with my clients. I employ multiple therapeutic perspectives including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, Developmental, Existential and Spiritual Concepts to guide clients towards increasing self-awareness, personal growth, and wellness. I view the therapist-client relationship as one of mutual trust, warmth and respect. I believe in educating clients so that they can play an active role in their mental health and relational wellness. I have 25 years of extensive experience providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families. I am dedicated to assisting clients in coping with and resolving challenges which arise throughout all of life’s stages including adolescence, adulthood and the senior years. I am glad you are here and I look forward to being a part of your journey.
