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. Counseling is an intimate and collaborative relationship and I respect my clients' willingness to allow me into some of the most private parts of their lives. My ideal client is as committed to the counseling process as I am and wants to make changes to improve their life.

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.

I do tend to take a reality based and person centered approach within my sessions, however every person is an individual and therefore my interventions will be tailored to that particular person.

Trauma can make you feel like someone has robbed you of your innocence, purpose, sense of belonging, your voice, and ability to feel safe in your own body. You might be searching for a sense of control, but feeling completely powerless. You escape into activities or relationships in order to feel anything at all and other times to make the feelings stop all together. You may have developed parts of yourself in order to survive, but what would life look like if you could shed old scripts and truly live a life that’s worth living?

Currently not taking new clients. You are looking for something. Relationship? Connection? A life worth living? Maybe you don't even know. How about a better relationship with yourself? Whatever it is, counseling can help. I use an eclectic approach because there is no one size fits all in trying to find what will work for you. I provide my clients with a safe, non-judgmental space to explore their story and find their strengths to work on what's not right. We are all capable of feeling good about who we are and to reach our highest potential. Never stop short at finding yours.

All people go through struggles, but not everyone reaches out for help. One of the hardest things to do is reach out and ask for support. I believe with the right therapist, you can express yourself freely without fear of judgement or bias. I believe that no two people are alike and therefore each person deserves an individualized approach, at any age in your life. I strive to provide a therapeutic experience of connection and relatedness that supports each individual’s unique development of self-awareness, insight, and ability to change.

Not feeling like yourself lately? Unexpected sadness, excessive worrying, unexplained anger, unresolved trauma? Maybe it's been going on for a couple of weeks or even a couple of months. You want to talk to someone, but are having a difficult time finding the right person in your family or friend group. Don't continue to bottle your feelings and let them build up until they explode in an unhealthy manner. Seeking help through therapy can be the first step to taking back control of your life.
