I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and received my Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005. I value the importance of the client-therapist relationship and strive to assist clients in gaining insights into their behavior. I attentively listen to each client empathetically, to help identify and define target problems, and together we develop the therapeutic treatment plan to best meet their unique needs and goals. I collaborate with schools, doctors, and other sources to assist in advocating for my clients. In addition, I provide tools, strategies, and resources to increase my clients’ coping and problem-solving skills that can be of life long benefit to my clients.
