I empower couples, individuals, and families to process through past or current obstacles and begin growing towards a more positive future relationship – with yourself and others.
Due to mediating between 4 sisters in my family, I am an empathetic and nurturing individual by nature and was drawn to the field of counseling almost instantly.
I am a fully Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois, with a certificate in Brief Strategic Family Therapy. Research shows the immense benefits encompassing family work with individual therapy has on the individual’s treatment outcomes. I have worked in an adolescent substance use agency, adolescent and adult behavioral hospital, and private practice settings, and in each setting, I have gained more knowledge and perspective.
Creating your positive future
I believe in meeting your needs with different therapeutic approaches to encourage expression, rapport, and comfortability. I specialize in sand tray or sand play therapy where all ages benefit from creative self-expression which is subconsciously externalized throughout the sessions.
I utilize different techniques such as: CBT, DBT, BSFT, art therapy, play therapy, mindfulness and meditation, and positive, strengths-based approaches to help each person reach their goals for therapy.
Because research shows that unhealthy relationships can cause both emotional and physical stress, whereas healthy relationships can enhance and improve overall well-being, I offer relationship counseling, family therapy, and individual counseling for anxiety, depression, familial, and relationship issues.
I look forward to hearing from you and beginning this journey of self-exploration! Call today to schedule an appointment, or just fill out the contact form and click Send.
