Announcement icon I am offering teletherapy (video) sessions through a HIPAA compliant platform and have in-office appointments (face covering required).
Our world has gone through tremendous changes in a very short time. We’ve been forced to adapt to a new way of living with changes in employment, online schooling, increased isolation and a reduction in enjoyable activities. Many people are experiencing anxiety, depression, increased conflicts in partner relationships and increased stress in parenting. These stressors also make it more difficult to cope with any other trauma past or present. You don’t have to go through this alone. I offer a safe, calm, compassionate space where you can express yourself freely without judgment. I approach counseling as partnering with my clients.
I have experience working with individuals, couples, children and families and specialized in the area of foster care and adoption. I utilize a trauma-informed and attachment-based approach with my clients. I have training in EMDR, Theraplay, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Therapy, CBT as well as other treatment approaches.
I completed my M.S. in Applied Family & Child Sciences with a Specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northern Illinois University in 2004. I have worked in a youth residential program, community mental health center and for a local child welfare agency in the past. I am currently accepting new clients.
