Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my biography. I received my master's degree in Human Services/Community Counseling. I have 18 years experience in MH and have been successful in working with individuals, couples, families and children. I have experience working with both sexual abusers as well as victims. I have a particular clinical area of strength working with juveniles and their families. I am also trained in EMDR level I & II and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I can also provide short-term counseling. My clinical approach is evidence based treatment as I am trained to work with various populations.

I am a therapist dedicated to assisting my clients in achieving personal health and well-being. I am interactive in my approach and solution focused. I integrate research based methodologies and techniques to assist my clients on their journey of strength building and personal attainment. Together we will work towards achieving your goals.

I am a trainer mediator through Northwestern University. This allows for me to assist individuals, couples and business partners to effectively temper any differences that they may encounter, while learning to negotiate their wants and needs productively. Online Therapy is also available upon request.
