Research and experience tells us that effective therapy is predicated on a truly meaningful relationship between client and therapist. I am confident that I can provide a time and space where you and/or your child will feel understood, accepted, cared for, and appropriately challenged to change. I work primarily with adolescents and young adults who are struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, grief and loss, divorce, separated and blended families, life transitions, sexual health and sexual identity, conflicted family relationships, attachment issues, and emotion and behavior management.
I can strike a balance between my one-on-one work with the teen by coaching and addressing issues with parents. I can also work with schools to ensure they are doing what needs to be done to help your child.
I try to work around busy family schedules as I know life can be chaotic between homework, sports, and other scheduling conflicts. I graduated from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology with a MA in Professional Counseling and have been working in the field for over 15 years.
