I am an experienced clinical social worker who works with individuals breaking barriers that are preventing their growth. Also, working with individuals healing from relationship struggles and abuse.

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois with over 15 years of experience working as a counselor. I have worked with clients with various concerns, including toxic relationships, narcissistic abuse/recovery, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, dual diagnosis, self-esteem, relationship issues, and life changes. I have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient treatment centers, juvenile justice programs, corrections, mental health, and crisis centers. I have worked with a wide range of individuals, from teenagers to seniors. I have a master’s degree in human services, with a concentration in substance abuse, and a master’s degree in social work with a concentration in mental health. I am currently working on my doctorate in psychoanalysis.
My counseling style is friendly and relaxed. I believe in treating anyone with respect, understanding, and empathy. I have several approaches I use and believe every individual is unique. I tailor my approach to the individual and their needs. These approaches could be motivational interviewing, psychodynamic, strengths-based, Jungian, reality therapy, rational-emotive therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
The first step in change is reaching out and exploring what could be different. Together we can work towards a life of more freedom and change and overcome the barriers that hold you back.
I look forward to working with you!
