When my clients walk in the door, I want them to feel my commitment to helping them conquer whatever battles they are currently facing.
My approach is open, honest, engaging, and sprinkled with humor. I do my best work with older teens, adults, and couples that find themselves in the midst of a transition, whether figuring out how to adjust to a blended family or navigating a difficult chapter in their lives. I pull from a variety of therapeutic approaches (Cognitive Behavioral, Person-Centered, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). Combining these skills with my life experiences allows me to empathize with all parties involved and creatively look for solutions.
I have always felt called to be a mom in more ways than just biological. That is why I am also a stepmom, foster mom, and adoptive mom. Having these different experiences and perspectives has allowed me to truly understand a variety of family dynamics. I love supporting other foster parents and adoptive parents.
I earned a Master’s in Social Work from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. I have worked with many diverse populations in various settings, including as a Child Welfare Specialist supporting youth and their biological and foster families. I have also worked in pregnancy counseling, adoptions, and with teens in a residential setting. I also have experience with adults of all ages in the community setting as they explore options for aging parents.
Works with adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-harm, difficult life transitions, grief, feelings of shame, trouble with emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
