As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my emphasis is meeting clients where they are and providing the type of support to assist them with overcoming challenges that have led to negative experiences. For the past 18 years, I have worked with children and their families to seek solutions to social, behavioral, and emotional issues that impact the home and school environment. One of my primary goals is to equip children and their parents with the tools needed to be successful in any situation or environment. Learning the strategies/tools to build strong, mutually respectful relationships is an area of value where I like to focus.

Are you worried about your child or adolescent? Do they need help learning skills to better help them manage anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, depression, or family changes, including divorce/ separation or grief/ loss? Do they need help to better emotionally regulate or develop social skills or other useful skills? Do you wish they felt better about themselves, were more mindful and focused, or could just cope better with life? I have 17 years experience in private practice and schools, much of it in the Lincoln-Way, Sandburg, and surrounding communities. I absolutely love working with kids and their families!

Are you struggling to navigate a world designed for neurotypicals? Impulse control, forgetfulness and sensory issues can often impact the ability to fully engage in school, the workplace or our relationships. Do these issues affect your sense of self and self-acceptance? Perhaps you have a child, sibling, or partner who is neurodivergent. Often it can be a struggle to understand their unique needs resulting in increased stress and often an inability to connect with loved ones. Ever ask yourself, “How do I do this?” If any of this resonates with you, you are not alone.

“Most people seek therapy because something isn’t working. Sometimes people do not feel equipped to handle life’s problems – work stress, family stress, health issues, etc. Many individuals feel stuck trying to solve problems the same way when those solutions are no longer helpful. This pain can leave someone suffering and feeling helpless.” I want to help you gain perspective and new knowledge and skills for change. Often this involves being more aware and present in the moment. Many people do not recognize the power they have to create positive change in their lives. I will help empower you to find your strengths and make change.

Each day of our lives can be described as a journey. At times, there are minor obstacles and at other times there appears to be mountains that we face. These situations can increase symptoms of anxiety and depression. With that said, we can forget where our inner strengths come from and we can lose sight of the meaning in our lives. It can be helpful to seek guidance from a therapist. A therapist can assist an individual in rediscovering inner strengths and developing the motivation to scale those mountains.

I believe in the importance of meeting people where they are in this moment - not asking you to feel, look, or act like someone you are not. My therapeutic approach is centered around providing a caring space where you can safely share your thoughts free from judgement. I invite you to slow down and explore your values, emotions and life experiences to help gain a deeper understanding of yourself and relationships, including recognizing patterns that contribute to stress and anxiety. Together, we can begin the process of increasing self-awareness, practicing self-acceptance, and building practical skills to cope with life’s issues.

Education and Learning Disabilities Therapists

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
