What You Need to Know About Me
I love getting to the heart of things and helping my clients explore both their inner world and worldview. After all, each of us is shaped by a wide variety of factors, such as culture, society, family, and beliefs. It is my passion to view clients as a whole, rather than just their struggles.
So, here’s a few things that have shaped me into the person I am today. While pursuing my Master’s degree, I began working as an applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapist for children on the autism spectrum and developed a deep understanding of behavioral health. I married my high school sweetheart and we now have two teens, two Brittany Spaniels, and enjoy our summers boating on Lake Michigan.
I received my Masters in Counseling from Governors State University, with a focus in Marriage, Couples, and Families. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor and member of the American Counseling Association. In addition, I have a BA in Psychology and extensive experience in working with children on the autism spectrum and their families. I am an advocate and ally for the LGBTQ+ community and have a passion for working with multicultural clients.
Client Focus: Couples, families, and adults dealing with relational issues, anxiety, depression, and grief.
Specialized Trainings: Psychological First Aid Certified, Telehealth for Mental Health Professionals Certified.
