I work to help reduce mental health issues by guiding a person to use their minds, bodies and spirituality to promote overall wellness. Focus is on each person's strengths to find solutions through creative expression, evidence based practices and spirituality/faith. I strive to help the person move forward in life and not dwell on a diagnosis or past life choices. What I do NOT do is: focus on a diagnosis; put people in categories and make assumptions based on their personal information; interrupt, attempt to teach or instruct as though I have the "right" answer. What I DO: include humor; listen; focus on YOU.

I have worked with children and adolescents and their families since 2003, and began working with young, middle age and elderly adults in 2013. I earned a master's in social work from Loyola University Chicago and worked as a school social worker, and outpatient therapist in community agencies in Northern Illinois.

Including a person's faith/spirituality is a huge asset to effective mental health treatment. Emotions and values connected to a person's faith/spirituality are very strong and energizing and can offer huge healing properties in therapy. All religions/spirituality are welcome and encouraged in sessions.
