Many people think that therapy looks like a session on a velvet couch* where the therapist says, “Tell me how that makes you feel”. That, or that therapy isn’t for someone who isn’t outwardly struggling. I am passionate about my profession because therapy can be those things, but it is also SO much more!

I hope to foster a more creative outlet for you than what a television series may document. Our sessions will be complete with self-expression and understanding. Hopefully there will also be a dash of vulnerability thrown into the mix when you are comfortable of course!

I graduated from Aurora University with a master’s in social work (MSW), as well as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) credential. I have recently obtained my licensed social worker (LSW) and Certified Trauma Practitioner (CTP) credentials.

Since graduating I have worked with several different individuals from adolescents within the school system, and their families. To crisis intervention clients who need services to save their lives. As well as my current position where I am a drug and alcohol counselor. I am extremely passionate about helping those who struggle with substance use disorder and their families. I have experience working within the 12-step framework, as well experience with AA, and adult children of Alcoholics (ACA) meeting formats. I am familiar with school systems, individualized education plan (IEP) and other social emotional struggles students may have.

I have over two years of experience and enjoy working with adolescents through adults and the elderly. The common therapeutic methods I utilize most often in session are, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Socratic Questioning, Family Systems and Strength Based approaches.

I am a Substance Use Counselor with experience in crisis intervention, crisis screening, 12-Step, school refusal, and other school related social struggles. I also have loved ones who are struggling with Substance Use Disorder.

I hope to work with you soon.
