About

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.
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'm passionate about working with LGBTQ+ individuals!
I assist trans* clients with letters and casemanagement aspects of transitioning. My strengths include being calm, transparent, nonjudgmental, and easy to develop rapport with quickly. It is my privilege to know and work with you. Counseling isn't just what I do, it's part of who I am.
