Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my biography. I received my MS in Human Services/Community Counseling. I have 20 years experience in MH and have been successful in working with individuals, couples, families and children. I have a particular clinical area of strength working with teens, women, men and first responders. I am also trained in EMDR level I & II, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Sex Therapy. I can also provide short-term counseling. My clinical approach is evidence based treatment as I am trained to work with various populations. We offer sessions in Libertyville, Gurnee and Buffalo Grove.
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.
