As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I use a non-judgmental and empathetic approach to help clients attain personal growth. I have experience working with issues such as depression, anxiety, grief/loss, women's issues, divorce, life transitions and relationship problems.
A privilege of my career is being able to guide clients towards seeing the best in themselves and striving to achieve their dreams. This involves partnering with clients to identify their strengths and growth areas in life. Assessing how physical, emotional, social, and spiritual values or beliefs may be helping or hurting optimal life satisfaction. Finally, developing unique tools that reinforce client's strengths in achieving their life goals. I am dedicate to serving the needs of the clients that I interact with on a daily basis and I look forward to being dedicated to working with you!

Clients often come to me because they struggle with anxious or depressive symptoms and don't know how to improve. They are often surprised to learn that underlying these symptoms are often seemingly unrelated beliefs and feelings about relationships - particular relationships and relationships in general - that they didn't even know were there. Often clients believe that there is something "wrong" with them and their mental health, not understanding that with the right language to tell their story they often find that they make perfect sense! In addition to relationships and Schema, we also explore personality, values, and goals.

I am prepared to assist you in finding effective coping skills and strategies, aid you in connecting with your own story and developing a renewed sense of self growth.

I am an LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor) therapist who has been serving clients in Lake County for over 20 years. I have worked with families, children, adolescents, couples and adults with varying diagnoses and issues (i.e. major depression, bipolar disorder, self-mutilation, ADHD, trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, chemical abuse and dependency).
Helping restore a sense of balance and self-worth to my client’s lives is my passion. My experience has spanned over 14 years, with a strong foundation in child and adolescent pathology. My philosophy is to work collaboratively in goal development and attainment, to highlight the connection among faulty thinking, feelings, and ineffective coping patterns and promote healthy changes. Through empowerment to challenge these factors, comes a renewed sense of confidence, strengths, and effective skills to manage life’s stressors and relationships.
When you're facing a difficult time in your life, you don’t have to go through it alone. I aim to be present, supportive, and accepting- allowing you to just be. If you're seeking support for stress associated with anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief and loss, trauma, or a difficult relationship, I am here to help. My approach to counseling is rooted in person-centered, cognitive, and dialectical behavioral therapies.
I specialize in treating those who are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, relationship struggles and career counseling. I believe that a nurturing relationship with a counselor is critical to a positive outcome and I practice a non-judgmental style that creates a safe environment for my clients.
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor I work with adults and adolescents facing a variety of challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, and identity exploration. My approach is based on honoring each person's individual strengths and vulnerabilities.

My strengths include working with adults and adolescents, developing rapport with resistant clients, and compassionate accountability. I frequently use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy techniques in my sessions. I am a relational therapist and focus on developing clients' strengths while also providing support for clients to stretch beyond their comfort zones. My treatment motto has become "It's through discomfort that we change." I will provide you with the education, compassion and support needed for you to face any fears or discomfort to become a healthier and happier person.
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, MS, LCPC, NCC, CATP, CAGCS
Allow me to be your partner and walk with you on this journey called therapy. I will strive to work with you to seek solutions and achieve goals. I have experience in helping my clients to gain an understanding of thoughts and feelings behind behaviors chosen; and to learn coping strategies to make an alternate choice. Through the process, you may gain further self-awareness, understanding, and learn to find more meaningful connections with others. Your story is not yet fully written. Let’s make that story a healthier, brighter one. I hope to provide a comfortable, safe space - for you to feel seen, heard and valued.
