About

I like people. It's hard to not feel compassion for an individual who is willing to bear their soul to find a better out come. I am clinically astute, however, I deliver a warm and compassionate and objective viewpoint to assist my clients. I have a diverse background which allows me to fully empathize with the clients I serve. I am licensed in both Illinois and Wisconsin . I have extensive experience working with victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse and traumatic history. Prior to working in my own practice, I worked with specialized children in foster care.
I have experience working with traumatize individuals. Working with traumatized youth is a passion of mine. I work with adults who experience depression, anxiety and life style adjustments and past sexual abuse. I provide family and couples counseling. I am EMDR trained. I provide assessments for people impacted by issues related to immigration.
I serve and am readily available to assist my clients regardless of scheduling hours. While I serve people for a living, the desire to assist peoples needs is a calling that I am passionate about. I utilize cognitive behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral therapies as well as EMDR. I speak Spanish and provide Immigration evaluations as an additional service.
