About My Clients

Do you find yourself struggling to get through the day? Difficulty enjoying life or coping with overwhelming circumstances? Even just trying to grow yourself personally or meet a certain goal? We all go through times in life where we need some extra support. That is where therapy comes in! I am here to help!

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Clinical Counselor in the state of Illinois and have been providing therapy for over 7 years. I received my Master's in Counseling from Lindenwood University, with an undergrad degree in Psychology and Sociology minor. My primary specialties are the following Trauma, including PTSD and C-PTSD, Major Depression, Generalized Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety, and ADHD. I also have experience and interest with Bipolar Disorders, Life transitions, Relationship Concerns, Grief, Career Counseling, and LGBTQ Populations.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in utilizing a collaborative approach. You are the expert on your life, and my role is to support you in the change you desire, providing guidance as needed. Healing from our stress and trauma requires not only talking about what happened, but changing our thinking, how our bodies respond, and becoming more present. Therefore, I often engage clients in cognitive and mindfulness strategies in sessions. Finally, I strive to provide you with a safe place for you to talk openly, process, identify your hidden strengths, and heal. I look forward to partnering with you on your journey toward the life you want!
