In addition to divorce counseling, my areas of specialization include relationship and peer issues, self-esteem, life transitions, domestic abuse , sexual abuse , trauma and PTSD.
I began my career as a practicing attorney representing women in abusive relationships in order of protection and divorce proceedings. As a therapist, I use my legal and therapeutic background to provide individual counseling prior to, during, and after divorce. Divorce is a traumatic life event that can have a ripple effect on nearly every aspect of one's life. I offer clients both concrete help to better understand the legal system and what they can expect from the process, while also working to gain deeper insight into what happened in the relationship and starting to heal from the experience.

My experience is with various populations such as individuals with autism, survivors of domestic violence , and employees having difficulty with work life balance.
My approach to helping people with their mental health is to meet them where they are at and focus on their priorities. I also enjoy learning about everyone's unique experiences and qualities. Initially we may focus on learning to ground oneself back into the present, monitoring your moods and viewing oneself non-judgmentally. Another portion I like is helping people meet life goals through practical solution-focused approaches. Once we build rapport and establish your goals, I can help you move forward toward a future that you desire!

Hi, I’m Keri. I am a graduate student at University of Illinois Chicago, Graduate School of Social Work, completing my fieldwork placement at Family Horizons PLLC under the supervision of both an LCSW and LCPC. For the last 25 years I dedicated my career as a public interest attorney: a zealous advocate for the underserved. I was the former legal director of a non profit organization that provided free legal services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. I have walked with victims through their darkest of traumas as they transformed into survivors. I remained by their side until they found the light..

I am trained in EMDR therapy and Movement Trauma Healing, and my therapeutic lens is influenced by my combined lived and clinical experience with especially these groups: survivors of interpersonal, institutional, and community violence ; queer, trans, and gender nonconforming communities; adolescents and their families; and community and movement organizers.
As your therapist, I partner with you in navigating the impacts of both internal and external circumstances on your ability to thrive.

I hope to co-create a space of trust, strength, and possibility that follows your direction, and supports you in clarifying what you want that direction to be. I work with adults, teens, and relationships, and hold a sex positive approach that is inclusive of those who are monogamous, non-monogamous, into kink and BDSM, and involved in the sex trade.

I specialize in working with clients impacted by trauma--including sexual, physical, and emotional assault/ abuse , neglect, and violence --and helping clients process grief and loss.
Humans have an amazing capacity to cope with trauma, loss and extreme stress; however, sometimes events overwhelm all our capacities, and even when those events are over we struggle to get past them and feel fearful or hopeless about our future. Using both EMDR and talk therapy, we will work in the present to identify problems, patterns, and symptoms; trace those issues to the past events that source them; reprocess those events to alleviate the present issues; and build resources to foster hope in the future.

I believe that every person possesses all the strengths and tools to achieve their healing goals, allowing them to thrive, and that it is my role to assist them in accessing and utilizing those strengths. In my past experience providing professional services to survivors of gender-based violence I have witnessed how profoundly trauma impacts the lives of those who experience it, as well as the lives of those who love them. I have been amazed at the strength and resilience of survivors and have seen the incredible capacity people have to heal, grow and change.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
