Life can be hard and I praise you for having the strength to reach out for help and support. I believe it takes courage to begin or continue this journey which is why I value creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for us to work in together.
I earned my BSW from Northeastern Illinois University and an MSW from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I enjoy working with clients of all ages. I have specific training and experience in working with youth with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, behavioral issues, and ADHD. I believe that family work is a big part of success in therapy and like to incorporate the family system into the therapy process when possible, to promote growth in treatment.
In treatment, some therapeutic approaches I like to utilize include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (CBT), Play Therapy, Mindfulness, Behavior Modification, Art therapy and Music therapy.
In my free time, I like to create artwork and spend time in nature, especially camping, hiking, canoeing, and rock climbing.
