Hoffman Estates Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor (CADC). SPECIALTIES: Addiction, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive, Phobias and PTSD.

My goal is to help individuals increase the knowledge of what may be going on and to bring a creative perspective on things. I enjoy putting a creative spin on techniques to help individuals find a way to relate to new skills that can be very helpful for them. I use my creative skills as much as possible to individualize treatment and how to relate to clients the best way that I can. I think outside of the box so that I can address the issues going on in the most effective way. There are times where using traditional techniques and skills can be useful but there are also times where you may need to pull ideas together and create a new way to go about using a skill.

I’m dedicated to finding out what works and doesn’t work for people, I’m here to listen, and let my wheels turn to figure out how my clients and I can work together as a team to help them get to where they would like to be, no matter how long the process. I know that it can be hard to participate in treatment and I try to do the best I can to help clients achieve their goals.

I graduated with my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Roosevelt University and completed my Substance Abuse program from Elgin Community College. I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and a Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor (CADC) but don’t let all the letters confuse you!

I have worked with adolescents, young adults, adults, and older adults with OCD, anxiety, depression, substance use, and self-esteem. I look forward to meeting new people who are looking to get themselves into a place where they feel able to manage issues that come up.

I enjoy being able to sit with clients, come up with ideas of how we can work on issues, and at times, that does include becoming uncomfortable but we’re working as a team to get you one step further to the goals you have!
