I am a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the ACA Divisions of Association for Lesbian , Gay , Bisexual , and Transgender Issues in Counseling (ALGBTIC) and Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD).
I specialize in providing LGBTQ + affirmative therapy in the south suburbs of Chicago, but I also work with individuals and couples for a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, chronic mental illness, relationship issues, stress, personal growth, and more. I have over 25 years of experience working in mental health.

My ideal client is as committed to the counseling process as I am and wants to make changes to improve their life.

Are you a person who feels isolated, disengaged, or overwhelmed due to the impacts of anxiety, depression, life changes, or other issues? I have experience in working with mental health concerns related to these areas that also includes working with individuals and groups. I understand that mental health is a marathon and we can not heal with a sprinters mentality.

Parenting a child experiencing big feelings can be overwhelming. When a child is displaying negative behaviors, it can impact the entire household. I believe that, together, we can help your child improve their emotional health and create balance within the family. I specialize in helping children and families ages 2-12. My approach is collaborative; I work with both the child and caregiver(s) to facilitate change and growth.

In some ways, the decision you’re about to make is the hardest part of this process. Choosing the right therapist and “type of therapy” can be confusing. That’s why I’d like to explain a little about my training and my approach to make your choice a little easier. My training taught me that by knowing what to listen for, I can connect your symptoms to your past life experiences. Once we start to do that, I will help you identify the reasons those experiences were hard to resolve. When something is hard to resolve, we tend to avoid it, which is why our mind then tells us that something still feels unresolved by producing symptoms.

We’ve all experienced times when we just feel stuck, going through the motions of life rather than actually living our best lives. Anxiety, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, past trauma or many other issues can impact your ability to live a full and happy life and have healthy family and other relationships. Therapy is a powerful medium that can provide many tools and strategies to help you navigate all of these challenges and many more. I enjoy working with child/adolescent, adult, and geriatric populations using a variety of therapeutic techniques including CBT, DBT, 12-Step, Trauma-Informed, and Family Systems Therapy.
