My Background and Approach

I have been providing counseling and therapy services for the past 27 years. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), Illinois certified alcohol and other drug counselor (CADC), and an internationally certified gambling counselor II, (ICGC-II), and a Board-Approved Clinical Consultant (BACC) I help adults reduce their emotional and/or physical pain, as well as the unhelpful effects that trauma has had on their lives. I support and guide adults in developing helpful coping skills and strategies that will decrease their depression, anxiety, and stress levels. I help adults develop the necessary skills that help them work with and cope with their chronic pain and chronic health illness/issues. This allows them to create the life they want and deserve to live. I also help couples develop greater emotional transparency, address underlying differences and conflicts as they learn how to put end communication patterns that have pulled them apart while building stronger intimacy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Each one of us at different times in our lives is challenged and hurt by something that is painful, stressful, overwhelming, or even devastating, and we have difficulty getting through it. Whatever is bothering you and causing you distress, know that you can get through it and don't need to do it alone, without help and support. Whether you are experiencing difficulty with health issues, a relationship crisis, personal loss, a past or recent trauma, or another emotionally painful personal issue, I am available to assist you during this uncertain and emotionally painful experience. Counseling can be profoundly helpful. You can improve your relationships with yourself, others, and you can develop new patterns, skills, and strategies that will help you feel calmer, connected, and hopeful so you can live the life you want and deserve. Together, let's begin to make it happen for you.
