I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois and Connecticut with over twenty years of experience as a therapist. While I routinely work with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and other relational and mental health issues, I also specialize in addiction, trauma, and bereavement. I have significant experience working with trauma and disaster relief, including victims of 9/11, Hurricane Sandy, the Sandy Hook school shooting, and the 2013 Alberta, Canada floods. I addition, I am an EMDRIA-certified EMDR therapist, Linehan trained in Dialectical Therapy (DBT), and certified in hypnosis. My treatment approach focuses on the goals and needs of my clients. I use a variety of approaches including CBT, DBT, EMDR, mindfulness, and psychoeducation, and believe in creating a safe space and taking the time necessary to really get to know my clients to find strategies and interventions that are individualized to their needs. I believe in empowering my clients and strive to help them develop strengths and strategies that can be utilized in many situations. I work mainly with individuals and couples, and am accepting of all genders and identities.
