I am extremely passionate about helping people improve their relationships, including relationships with themselves. Our feelings of self-worth and confidence play a critical role in our day-to-day lives. And oftentimes, at the root of many of our struggles, we find connections to our relationships with self and others.
In our work together, I want the client to be the guide. There are so many situations in our lives where we have no control; in a therapy session, I want you to feel empowered. I truly aim to individualize my work with each of my clients. Whether you are looking for practical tools and skills to use in your day-to-day life, discussion and examination of your life experiences, or a blend of everything, my job is to support you in whatever way necessary. I incorporate interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic, and family-systems approaches.
I work extensively with adolescents and adults who are dealing with anxiety, depression, stress management, relationships, life transitions, and self-esteem/body image issues. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Governors State University. During my educational experience, I worked in the domestic violence field with survivors and their children. I have also worked in residential settings with adolescents and adults recovering from eating disorders, trauma, and mood disorders. When I’m not at work, I enjoy quality time with my dog, reading and doing puzzles, being active both in the gym and outdoors, and dancing around my kitchen while listening to Queen and The Rolling Stones.

What a week for our world. As everyone tries to adapt to a new sense of normal amidst an ever-changing landscape, we've all been asked to do things differently. And humans do not like change! We crave the familiar, the predictable, the known. One of the ways we are encouraging our community to stay healthy during this time is to keep as much routine and consistency as possible, including self-care and support.
We understand the anxiety and worries that are in the world right now, we also understand the importance of connection and care and healing. We are moving all of our appointments to Telehealth sessions as of Monday, March 23rd. While this may be a different way of doing things for some of you, it allows us to be a consistent source of support for our community.
Our practice has been using telehealth for over two years, and we have a HIPAA compliant platform in place that is really quite simple to use for our sessions. All of our therapists are able to walk you through getting used to your first telehealth session and not much will be different other than you'll show up online instead of at the offices.
In fact, we're still taking new clients during this time, so if you are feeling like you'd like to talk to someone or know of someone in need of extra support right now, let them know that we are here to help. You can call or text our offices at: 630-563-0044 or sign up online via the "Book Appointment Online" button on our website.
