The Sky's the Limit!
Child, Adolescent & Family Counseling
Raising kids is one of the most important jobs in the world. Parenting can be a lot of fun and challenging at the same time. Kids are often faced with issues that are overwhelming, frustrating and at times even hopeless. Some of them do not respond in the most positive ways. Parents have difficulty understanding why their best efforts sometimes don’t stop their kids from making poor choices, being depressed or decreasing anxiety. Through counseling I attempt to assist parents with their child or adolescent in identifying issues, overcoming challenges, and bridging gaps between them and their child.

Counseling can help children and teens develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the importance of seeking help. I can help children, teens and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many children and teens need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need assistance to discuss family related stress such as divorce, death or illness. With a little assistance “The Sky’s The Limit!”

Kids of all ages enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of my office. I use a variety of techniques when working with children and adolescents to initially establish a trusting relationship. Some techniques I utilize are play therapy, art therapy, behavior modification, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), role-playing, modeling, feeling identification, choice therapy and anger management.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). I graduated from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago with a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. In addition, I have had subsequent coursework in substance abuse counseling from the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL and i obtained a certificate in School Counseling from the School Counselor Institute also at Northern Illinois University. I also possess Type 73 certification as a School Counselor.
My experience includes working with child, adolescent, adult and family issues. I am especially knowledgeable in working with young people and their families. I have assisted many young people and their families with issues such as poor grades, learning disorders, truancy, self-esteem, substance abuse, grief/loss, anger problems, divorce, attachment issues, depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, cutting/self-injury, Bipolar Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

Before starting my own practice, I was a therapist in a group practice, have worked in a community mental health center as an outpatient therapist, have counseled students in a therapeutic day school as a program therapist and have served the under-resourced in the child welfare system.
I am a member of the Illinois Counseling Association, Illinois School Counseling Association, and Illinois Mental Health Counselors Association.
