If you're ready to work, I’m ready to hit the ground running. You’re ready for change today, not two years from now. Together, we’re going to roll up our sleeves and collaborate on how to make those changes happen. I promise to be your biggest fan and 100% honest with you as you head toward the life you want.
My role is to challenge you and help you see and express some difficult things. There might be times when you won’t like me (or you) and you’ll want to stop. That's how therapy works sometimes - it's a normal part of the process. We put in the effort, push through the tough parts, take breathers when we need to and rejoice in the breakthroughs. Because on the other side of the hard work you do with me is the life you want and deserve.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor; I have a BS in Psychology and received my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University. I'm originally from Austin where I developed a love of Tex-Mex, live music and the perfectly placed swear word. I love living in Chicago but miss wearing flip flops in December. I'm married, raising two teens and having fun with our two dogs.
Regardless of the reasons you are interested in starting therapy, my role is to create a comfortable place where you can share what’s on your mind without any fear of judgement. My hope is your experience with me is relaxed, inspired and helpful. I fully understand just how challenging life can be, and I want you to know that you don’t have to struggle through the challenges alone.
My personal style is person centered, which means I will meet you where you are and walk alongside you toward the life you want for yourself. I truly believe in your ability to make the necessary changes to make your life the best it can be.
I am a student at Northwestern University completing my masters in mental health counseling. I studied psychology at Boston College and have an MBA from DePaul. While a large part of my career was in residential real estate, my passion has always been helping others. In my spare time I am a Crisis Text Line Counselor, and I am married with three awesome teens and a giant St Bernard mix named Gertrude.
