My ideal client is an adolescent to young adult who is motivated to improve their life and coping skills. I have experience working with a variety of presenting concerns including self-injury, stress, anxiety, anger, bereavement, depression, and trauma. I have many years of experience working with adolescents, adults and families in high school's across the Chicago land area.

I specialize in working with adolescents coping with self-injury. This issue is becoming common in our world, and I am passionate about helping teenagers transition to healthy coping skills and build positive self-esteem. I will help my clients discover their strengths and utilize them.

I practice an eclectic and strength-based approach to counseling which includes aspects of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness. I am also trained in EMDR a treatment method used for PTSD and trauma.
