As an in-home professional counselor and educational advocate, I work with couples and families where they feel most comfortable. Treatment revolves around helping individuals and families be their best selves by using successes in the past to confront and conquer current life challenges. Sometimes great kids make bad decisions. We work together to learn practical strategies to put in your parent toolbox. I'm also passionate about helping parents trust their instincts. I can sort through the specialized vocabulary of IEPs and help parents assert their expertise when it comes to the special needs of special kids.

I was a classroom teacher for 15 years with the pleasure of having taught in public high schools, alternative high schools, a charter middle school, and a gifted program for upper elementary students. I completed clinical work in the field of juvenile justice and substance abuse to complete my licensure.

On a personal note, I am a Jersey girl who was adopted by Chicago (go Northwestern). I've been known to be overenthusiastic about my beloved Chicago Bears and my fantasy football team, The Brute Squad. I indulge in dreams of being a foodie by obsessing over cooking reality shows.
