Specialties:

 

I am licensed clinician in metal health counseling with a specialization in children and adolescents.  I hold Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Spanish from Purdue University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Aurora University. As a former educator, I have over fifteen years of experience working with children and adolescents and their families from all walks of life, and I am passionate about helping others find joy, connection, and belonging so they can successfully navigate life’s challenges with integrity and authenticity.

I aim to help children, adolescents, and adults navigate family conflict issues, trauma, mood disorders, grief, loss, relational distress, life transitions, and stress management challenges. Practicing from a client-centered, integrative framework grounded in Attachment, Family Systems, and Ecological Systems theories, I employ evidence-based approaches, and my clinical training includes certifications in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Adlerian Child and Family Play Therapy. When working with children and adolescents and their families, I focus on holistic, developmentally-appropriate practices that help each individual learn healthy coping skills and build positive relationships with peers, family, and themselves.

Healing and growth take place in the context of relationships, and together we will build one based on warmth, trust, and authenticity. My goal in every session is to provide a safe space of support and encouragement to help you become aware of who you are, what you want, where you are heading, and what is getting in your way. Ultimately, I believe you are the expert on you, and my role is to help you discover your strengths, develop new skills, and utilize effective strategies to live your life to the fullest.

I have a flexible schedule and offer a free consultation.  Please contact 224.241.2197 to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.
