Licensed Professional Counselor, State of Illinois # 178017014
I strive to create a safe, therapeutic space tailored to meet your needs, challenges, and personal goals. As we work together, we collaboratively explore healthy awareness and self-compassion to enhance the overall quality of your life and relationships. Respecting your pace, I utilize the therapeutic relationship to explore your resources and resiliency to promote interpersonal strength, vitality and overall wellness.
My approach utilizes supportive psychotherapy for individuals dealing with emotional trauma, unmet family needs, anxiety, depression and substance abuse recovery. I utilize an interactive and integrative approach. I celebrate and welcome all cultures, abilities, gender identities, and sexualities.
I believe that you, the individual, are an expert in your own life and that you have strengths and basic goodness which may occasionally not be seen but can once again be discovered. I strive to help you discover your dreams and goals once again.
