In my work, I strive to hold a safe space where you are heard without feeling judged. I create that safe environment through curiosity, authenticity, trust, and humor.
I focus your growth, and take a collaborative approach to goal setting. Partnering with you, I tailor a unique therapeutic approach and draw from a vast supply of resources to help you achieve your goals.
Together, we will explore your support system, observe and explore your triggers and behaviors, and practice mindfulness by being curious about your thoughts and challenging your negative cognitive distortions.
My primary treatment approaches include mindfulness, mediation, motivational interviewing, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and strength-based and person-centered therapies. I believe that coping skills are key to mental wellness and help you to build effective skills you can use in stressful situations.
I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor and specialize in substance abuse. I am trained to work with individuals who struggle with addiction or who have a loved one struggling with substance abuse disorder. I work with dual-diagnosis and understand not only the genetic component of addiction, but also how individuals are often self-medicating for unresolved issues in their lives. If you are struggling with substance abuse, we will work to get you involved in a recovery program, and reinforce the importance of a strong support network.
I am also a Certified Grief Counselor and work with people who are experiencing grief and loss. No matter what or who you may have lost, I can help you move through your grief process, avoid complicated grief, and help memorialize and honor your loss.
I have a passion for working with individuals with and families of people with chronic medical conditions, especially type 1 diabetes. I am also experienced working with anyone struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions, symbolic loss, employment struggles, care-givers, multicultural issues, and relationship concerns.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, having earned my masters in social work from Aurora University. In addition to my MSW, I am also certified in grief counseling and certified as an Addictions and other Drug Counselor (CADC). When I’m not seeing clients, I love reading, spending time with loved ones, learning new things, and fighting for equity and social justice in my community. I also love a strong cup of coffee and a good book.
