Provides therapy in Illinois

About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Warm, friendly, non-judgmental and I offer a comfortable space for clients to share and explore their emotions.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I acknowledge that only you have the power to heal yourself, I can only provide the tools. When it comes to working with young children, my approach is family focused therapy, recognizing the importance of familial relationships for change.

  • Together, we will:

    Find the root of what may today be affecting your self-esteem, job, family, relationships etc. Often times people become stuck in their behavior patterns. Together we will get unstuck and learn new patterns that are more beneficial.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Having someone in my family struggle with mental health issues made me realize the importance of taking care of your mental health.

  • More about me and my practice:

    While providing clients a diagnosis is a big part of mental health, I believe that a person should not be defined by it. I approach therapy as a way to build on your coping skills and increase your ability to deal with life stressors.
