Biography

Thank you for inquiring about who I am. It can take courage to ask for help. I applaud you for reading on and hope I am your choice to support you, your child, partner, parent, family or friend. I am a therapist with over 30 years of experience. I have also served as a school social worker from 2005 – 2021 in both private and public school systems. I am well versed in a variety of clinical modalities. My goal is to evoke positive change in the individuals who choose to work with me. I excel in working with children (4+), adolescents, adults, parents, couples and families.

I am passionate about supporting an individual to be their best self. To that end, each individual is unique. My effort to support health affords me to reach in and share a tool chest of 30 years of experience and extract those clinical modalities that best suit the person with whom I am working. I incorporate mindfulness and healing in my journey with others. I focus on supporting an individual’s strengths. Together we learn how to reframe difficult situations into an opportunity for continued growth. This includes working with ASD, twice exceptional children, ADHD, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, LGTBQ, trauma, mood disorders, substance issues, family, couples issues, elder issues.

I received my undergraduate degree in Opera with a minor in Business from Indiana University, my master’s degree in social work from The University of Chicago, Loyola University post-master degree for type 73 school social work. As a licensed clinical social worker and certified addictions counselor, I have worked in the Employee Assistance field, school systems, and business sectors. Thank you for your time and consideration!
