I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in three states (Illinois, Texas, Tennessee) with over twenty years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults. In my career I have worked in many different settings including inpatient/outpatient facilities, hospitals, schools, university clinics, and clients’ homes. My areas of treatment have included trauma, grief & loss, abuse, depression, anxiety, learning difficulties, behavioral challenges, divorce/family issues, self-harm, and more. My approach to counseling is that it’s a learning process where respect and trust are built to develop a partnership between the therapist and client. I am creative and I utilize yoga, art, movement, and evidence-based methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to engage my clients. I am passionate and I will meet the client where they are to achieve their goals for therapy.
