I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, with many differing experiences in the field of mental health and well-being. I have experience working with families, couples, and individuals between the ages of 5 and 90 years old.

I am the owner of Grit and Grace Therapy, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois, with many differing experiences in the field of mental health and well-being. I have experience working with families, couples, and individuals between the ages of 5 and 90 years old. ​ I have experience supporting my clients with concerns related to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, mood and personality disorders, and trauma-related disorders amongst other mental health conditions. Less specific to a diagnosis, I thoroughly enjoy supporting clients with life adjustments and desires for fulfillment and personal growth.

As a Certified First Responder Counselor, I am dedicated towards creating mental health resiliency within a safe environment so that First Responders, Veterans, Military and their families are able to address the many issues that they face. ​ I utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
I enjoy getting to know each of my clients right where they are, and helping determine the most effective route in treatment to help them meet their goals. I do utilize psychological testing that is within my scope of practice, when needed or applicable. ​

My ultimate goal as a therapist is to ensure every client that suffers with mental health, PTSD, or day to day stressors has the ability to receive top quality treatment without fear of judgment or a lack of confidentiality.
