Counselor in Buffalo Grove, IL
Supervised by Michelle Magida, LCPC
I am currently getting client-centered play therapy training and play therapy training. I have worked with children from ages 3 to 12 years for about three years.
I view trauma as a spectrum, and that trauma does not have to be an isolated incident. Trauma can occur throughout a person's life causing anxiety and depression. I work with adjustment disorders, acute stress, PTSD, and substance abuse associated with trauma.
I work with many teens that range from LGBTQ+ and transitioning, consulting for transitioning with parental support, overall parent coaching, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and trauma.
Currently I receive supervision on working with clients with DID, and other dissociative symptoms. I work to assist the invidual in coping and grounding and decrease in crisis responses.
