It takes courage to realize you're struggling. Even though you've been trying to help yourself feel better, you're still struggling. You deserve to feel better. Whether you're feeling overwhelmed with stress, anxiety, depression, or past trauma, frustrated with a relationship, gambling a lot, feeling stuck and uncertain, or wonder how much longer you can keep it together, I'd be glad to help you get to a place of feeling better. We all need and deserve to have someone to talk to about the toughest and most painful parts of our lives. Life often can be incredibly difficult. It's good to know we don't have to deal with it alone.

For the past two decades I've helped adults and couples: 1) Reduce their stress, anxiety, depression, and effects from trauma 2) Accept and cope with chronic pain and chronic illness 3) Reduce & recover from problem gambling 4) Develop greater connections while addressing conflicts, unhelpful patterns, intimacy issues, and relationship stressors.

You don't have to feel alone nor do you need suffer any longer. If you're ready to make a change so you can feel better and create the life you want and deserve to have, it'd be my honor to help. Therapy is an investment in your well-being, growth, health, and happiness. I encourage you to take the next step by reaching out and contacting me. Let's begin!

I have been providing counseling, therapy, and treatment services for the past 28 years. I have been a private practice therapist in Bartlett, Illinois and Elgin, Illinois for a total of 8 years.

I provide therapy to adults and couples in our practice, Health and Healing Therapy LLC, in Bartlett, Illinois, where I serve as the Director as well as a Therapist.

In addition, I serve as a Clinical Consultant, supporting and helping other therapists and counselors learn more about how to help friends, family members, and those individuals who struggle with and need problem gambling, compulsive gambling, or gambling disorder treatment. As a Board Approved Clinical Consultant, I assist therapists throughout the state of Illinois to meet all the requirements to become Internationally Certified Gambling Counselors.

Previously, for 22 years, from April of 1996 – July of 2018, I served as the Director of a non-profit community counseling program that had offices in Elgin, Illinois, St. Charles, Illinois, and Streamwood, Illinois.

Throughout my clinical career, I’ve provided clinical supervision and directly supervised over a hundred (100) therapists and counselors in training. Together, the teams of clinicians I’ve supervised, mentored, and supported have provided counseling and therapy services for over 16,000 people. It’s been a profound privilege to have been involved in serving so many people while helping to enrich their lives.
