My Website

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s degree
in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

In my therapeutic work with clients, I strive to honor the whole person – taking into consideration the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual components which make up each person’s background. I recognize that each person's needs are unique and I use an integrative approach to therapy, pulling from a number of orientations including Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

Areas of focus in my practice include, but are not limited to: relationship issues, addiction, blended family issues, anxiety, trauma/sexual abuse, and women's issues.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

I became a mental health professional because I want to help people experience all the goodness that life has to offer.

It all started with my pre-teen propensity for analyzing my own family members. I could often be heard trying to engage my captive sibling audience in such questions as "Why do you think Mom/Dad does this?" or "How did you feel when Uncle Albert said that?"

Those kinds of questions led to my clinical training and are now my life's work. I believe that relationships are the not-so-secret secret to a happy life. Our family members, friends, and business associates have ways of being like little mirrors who reflect back to us our own fears, flaws, and judgments. However, relationships can also point us toward healing and personal change - but only if we let them. I love helping others on that journey.
