Life can be difficult, chaotic, and downright confusing sometimes and a good counselor can help bring clarity during these rough times. I believe counseling is a partnership that assists you in exploring and addressing your mental, emotional, and behavioral needs. Being distressed can be caused by various issues and therapy exists to assist you in effectively managing those issues. Treatment should be diverse since issues are diverse, so treatment is tailored to the client's particular needs, as opposed to a one size fits all approach. Let's work together to find solutions to the issues you are experiencing whatever they might be.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor with 5 years of experience in the field. I have worked with people ranging from ages 6 to 82. I've provided individual counseling and couple's counseling. I utilize solution focused, person centered, and motivational interviewing theories.

Being born and raised in the Chicago land area I can relate to the challenges facing those who reside there. I rely on being practical, empathetic and relatable to build a strong partnership with my clients. I love working with a diverse group of people from all walks of life.
