As a seasoned clinician with over 25 years experience, I realize everyone who passes through my door enters with a unique set of needs & experiences. As the client, you set the pace of treatment and together, as a team, we determine what is needed to improve your quality of life. Whether you need a few sessions or something more long term, I am here to assist you in developing the life you desire & to navigate life's challenges.

I am experienced in the treatment of depression, anxiety, obsessions, bipolar, personality disorders, chronically mentally ill, trauma, & couples counseling. My clients describe me as being interactive, empowering, & direct. My superpower is being able to find the simplicity in the complex so that you can start making changes quickly.

I am a published author with three monthly columns, travel the country as a key note speaker, an associate member of Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police and provide clinical supervision to mental health professionals.
