Counselor, PhD, LCPC IL, LPC TX

I specialize in dual diagnosis disorders, and have experience with mood disorders, personality disorders , substance abuse, sexual concerns, domestic violence, and grief and loss, just to name a few.
The issue is that there are so many issues that need to be addressed. Most people cannot just focus on their own needs and wants. We all have work, school, and family that also require time and energy. Finding the space and place to work on ourselves is often a challenge. Many people reach out to me having an idea of what they need help with while knowing that there is so much from their past, and in their present that they do not know where to start, that is why I am here to help. I work with people to set goals, and accomplish their objectives, by exploring who they are and who they want to become.

I specialize in working with people who live with depression, anxiety, personality disorders , and trauma related disorders.
As a clinical art therapist, I aim to facilitate growth through verbal and expressive therapies. In my experience, expressive therapies incorporate kinetic practices to release and process trauma trapped in the body. The creative process generates a space to assimilate the values, characteristics, and qualities that make you unique. Clients have the option to engage in art therapy or traditional talk therapy. I work with adults, couples, and families who experience a wide range of concerns including mood disorders, neurodivergence, substance abuse, gender and sexual identity exploration, relational stressors, PTSD, grief and loss.

The therapeutic relationship is a safe place to explore, examine, and assess where you are today versus where you want to be in future. Together, we will identify the challenges that keep you from living a more satisfying life and develop concrete plans and skills to address these obstacles. My approach is always collaborative, in which you are the expert of your own experience and strengths. I work with couples and adults with a variety of issues such as sexual dysfunction, anxiety, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, personality disorders , and PTSD.

I have comprehensive training and experience working with men and women struggling with complicated grief, depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, personality disorders and traumatic childhood experiences.
All of us experience the feeling of being stuck in some way, perhaps frustrated by challenging life circumstances, discouraged by unfulfilling relationships or just generally stirred up by the vague sense that something is just not working. Through the course of my experience, I have come to believe deeply in the power of the therapeutic relationship and the way in which a collaboration with a thoughtful, compassionate and dedicated therapist can be the catalyst for real change.

My primary experience has been with adolescents and adults suffering from domestic violence, sexual trauma, personality disorders , anxiety, depression, and sexual kinks in individual and group settings.
Change is inevitable and it can be difficult to embrace these persistent ups and downs while learning to thrive on this roller coaster of transition. Sometimes we need a little help navigating ways in managing these challenging emotions. Hence, I take a warm, empathetic, and “real” approach to therapy. I believe maintaining a personable, professional relationship helps build a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients. I've found that creating a safe non-judgemental space has empowered my clients to regain control of their lives. My clients come from all walks of life. Each with their own unique experiences.

I have many years of experience treating adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, personality disorders , suicidal ideations, self harm, and troubles with adjustments & life transitions.
It is inevitable that life is challenging and often times, we feel stuck and need reminders that we are not alone. As a psychotherapist, I understand that each client has a unique story of their own and that each client deserves tailored and individualized care. We will start by establishing what goals you would like to achieve in therapy and will then create a treatment plan collaboratively. I tend to pull from your strengths and values, and will work with you to unpack unhelpful thinking patterns and maladaptive behaviors and will explore alternative coping skills that will be more sustainable for you in the long run.

In addition to seeing a wide range of clients, I have two areas of specialization: 1) Intensive psychotherapy of 'severe mental illness' and personality disorders (with or without medications) including schizophrenia, bi-polar, or borderline personality disorder.
Do you know what you need to do or think, but still can't do it? Do you understand how to move forward but find yourself stuck nonetheless? Maybe you have medically unexplained health problems, or doctors telling you it's in your head? These are some of the reasons people seek psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years in various settings including a university student counseling center and public mental health clinics for the seriously mentally ill and have effectively worked with clients struggling with conditions ranging from adjustment disorders (reactions to stress) to schizophrenia.

My clinical areas of strength include childhood trauma/Complex PTSD/PTSD, dissociation, attachment wounding, self-worth, personality disorders , and issues surrounding intimate partner violence, and relationship issues.
As your therapist, one of my priorities is to walk alongside you as you grow into the best version of yourself, embracing your individuality and strengths. It can be difficult to balance internal safety and values with the external commotion in the world. A sense of disillusionment occurs when our external wants do not meet our internal needs. I focus on your concept of self-worth as it relates to emotional disturbance, fragmentation of the self, maladaptive thinking patterns, and dissociation. Working collaboratively to assist you in reaching your best emotional, mental, and spiritual alignment is the focus of my practice.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be a challenging one, and finding the right therapist is an important piece.

I give my clients the space to describe their challenges and hardships. Along the way, I help clients develop coping skills as well as awareness into their patterns and behaviors, and systemic factors, in order to create positive changes in their lives. I support all parts of clients’ histories, inviting honest exploration into the complexities of their experiences.
