Announcement icon I am currently conducting in-person, virtual and phone sessions and ask that clients wear masks for their in-person sessions.
I am the co-owner and therapist at Olimene Counseling Services, Inc. I am passionate about making a positive change for behavioral health clients in the community. I have great confidence that the behavioral health therapy we provide to the community will assist individuals and families in achieving emotional wellness and stability. I completed my undergraduate work at Carthage College in Wisconsin, and my masters degree at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have a history of working for 10 years in the crisis department of a behavioral health hospital both as a therapist and a manager.
My specialty include: eating disorder, self injury & trauma. Also, I am skilled in working with women experiencing anxiety or depression as a result of a life change or situational stressor. I also have specific experience in helping older adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, or a chronic medical concern.
I use a number of therapeutic techniques to help promote & support change & success. Such approaches may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Model, motivational interviewing & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. My expectation is that the patient & therapist both be dynamically involved in the process of treatment to accomplish the best therapeutic outcome.
