Hello! I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I received my Master’s in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in community counseling. I've been a Licensed Professional Counselor for about 13 years. Experience: 10 yrs in private practice- working with the delinquent youth of MKE county, also worked in a residential facility for dually diagnosed children with autism. More recently worked with those who struggle with substance abuse and dependency.
My approach is laidback realism - I don't sugar coat anything. I utilize a multi-modal therapies including but not limited to: CBT, Pyschodynamic, Psychoeducation, Solution Focused, Etc. I have specialized in counseling clients with traumatic histories.
I am pretty big on emphasizing one's own self awareness. The environment you can expect while working with me is that of honesty and acceptance. Just reach out! Let's Talk!

I work with clients who may be struggling with depression or trauma related to their relationships or family history. In initial sessions, we'll delve deeply into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With CBT, we'll look at how your thoughts affect your emotions and experience. During treatment, I'll help you learn how to push back against those thoughts to change your feelings for the better.
