My motto is "try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud". I enjoy working with individuals, groups, and families from all ages seeking ways to grow socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. I welcome all "walks of life" from various cultural backgrounds who are facing challenges with trauma, mental health disorders, autism, intellectual disabilities, youth in care, family dynamics, and many more. This office provides Telehealth Services (e.g., Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Texas) and face-to-face sessions.
I specialize in cultural/diversity, emotional disturbance, infant mental health, mood disorders, youth in care/foster care, social skills, self-esteem issues, behavior management, grief/loss/trauma, self-injurious behaviors, developmental disabilities, and school based concerns. There are available services for training, evaluation, supervision and others.
You will find a wide range of clinical interventions and other approaches such as arts/craft, mindfulness more. The premise is to provide experiences that are uplifting, supportive, and educational. Regardless of the problem, let's work together to find ways to help you to improve your overall well-being.

Each client will receive an initial evaluation to identify treatment goals, and treatment approaches that would be helpful during sessions. I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Exposure Response Prevention with clients.
