Struggling from time to time with life's stresses is something we all have in common. I'm easy to talk to, practical, down to earth and really good at what I do. I specialize in helping people just like you discover meaningful and lasting solutions to emotional, behavioral and relational struggles. I'm here when you need someone to turn to for individual, family, couples or group counseling. My areas of expertise include: * Emotional struggles * Anxiety & Depression * Couples & Family * Improving Relationships * Life Transitions * Crisis/Trauma issues * Family of origin issues * Crisis/Trauma * Addictions * Codependency * Decision Making and more.

I enjoy counseling adults, adolescents, and older children to enhance quality of life, improve relationships, and achieve personal, family, and professional goals. My counseling orientation is mostly cognitive behavioral so we tackle problem behaviors and communication by addressing the feelings, thinking and beliefs that drive the behaviors. EMAIL IS BEST WAY TO CONTACT ME.

I have over 18 years of experience helping people. Clients usually feel at ease right away. I'm easy to talk to, experienced, and good at what I do. I train other professionals as an Associate Professor of Counselor Education, and former Teaching Associate at UIC Medical.
