Trauma, PTSD, LGBT issues in counseling
I work with a variety of psychological issues and concerns. I specialize in working with trauma, PTSD and LGBT issues.
I offer caring, respectful, and compassionate counseling to help in the healing process from a traumatic experience. Trauma can result from childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, military/war, witness to violence, car accidents etc. Whether the trauma is from early childhood or more recent, I provide a safe place to heal from the traumatic events. I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma. My style is holistic, interactive, and collaborative. I would be honored to assist you in working through and healing from your traumatic events. I also work with LGBT clients who may be struggling with the coming out process.
. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) with over 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families.

My professional training includes a masters degree in Counseling and post-graduate training in sexual abuse/assault, and domestic violence through the Illinois Coalition against Sexual assault and Illinois Coalition against domestic violence. My training has also extended to working with the LGBT community. I have recently completed an intensive training in Prolonged Exposure Therapy in the treatment of PTSD and trauma through the University of Pennsylvania.
I have worked extensively with survivors of sexual abuse/assault, domestic violence and other traumatic events. I provide critical incident stress debriefing and mass disaster response services. I am comfortable working in crisis situations and with individuals struggling with PTSD, depression or anxiety.
