Clinical Social Work/Therapist


Thank you for viewing my profile and for considering me to be your therapist. You are one step closer to becoming YOUR BEST SELF!  I believe that with counseling, psycho-education, support and encouragement you can overcome the many obstacles and challenges of life.



My life’s mission is to help people to become the best they can be. I consider it a privilege to serve others. I have been providing individual, group and family therapy as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the past 15 years. I have worked with women, men, children and older adults with a variety of mental health (depression, anxiety, fear, anger management etc.) and general life challenges (low self-esteem, anger, life transitions, disappointments, mood changes, relationship issues etc.) I have experience with CBT, client centered therapy, motivational interviewing, problem solving, self talk therapy and short-term solution focused treatment.





My approach to therapy is simple. We focus on what you want to accomplish or address. We identify your strengths, weaknesses and challenges to create increased hope and self awareness. We develop a plan together that will help you to accomplish the goals you set. You receive non judgmental support and encouragement along with practical techniques and strategies that will assist you in your journey forward. 





I believe I was well prepared to assist you in your therapy process and on the next leg of your life’s journey. I received my B.S. in Psychology and Communications from DePaul University and my M.A. in Social Work at the University of Chicago. I am excited about what the future holds for you and look forward to working with you.
