Announcement icon I provide confidential online video or phone sessions. Face to face or at your location through the internet.
I enjoy helping patients improve their lives. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I specialize in depression and anxiety that stems from relationship issues, peer issues, work problems, and school issues. Through education, life experiences, a family of my own, and a great deal of empathy, I feel that I can offer unique and confidential treatment. I have worked within private practices, hospitals, trauma centers, hospices and schools. Before counseling, I worked in academics, teaching, and financial institutions. I aim to provide my patients with the highest quality of care possible.
I am a therapist in a private downtown Wheaton location. I work with individuals in a confidential collaborative, empathetic relationship (individuals, adolescents, couples/families, groups using CBT, DBT, ACT and other approaches). Therapy is my passion; it is a protected communication/connection that produces change giving you freedom from emotional pain.
Therapy is unique and it takes a unique individual that has experienced life's pleasures and pains. I will be there for you and your loved ones. Free yourself or your loved one from difficulties. Please call and we can talk about what services you need and how you might like to proceed. I look forward to talking and developing a unique plan for you.
