My career in psychology began with graduate study at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (Chicago, IL), which included a certificate in Trauma-Focused Behavioral Therapy, followed by completion of a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology from Benedictine University (Lisle, IL). I am a member of the Illinois Counseling Association as well as the Association for the Development of the Person-Centered Approach.

My practice is grounded in positive, humanistic values that encourage personal growth and healing with a variety of treatment modalities. I believe each client deserves the most effective treatment tailored to their unique personality and circumstances. Many different issues can be addressed in counseling sessions, and may be appropriate for short-term solution-focused techniques, time-limited cognitive behavioral strategies, narrative therapy, skill-building exercises from the dialectical behavior therapy approach, or long-term supportive psychotherapy. If you are thinking about beginning the inner quest of counseling, I am here to walk with you on your journey.
