I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master of Social Work from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have several years of experience as a School Social Worker. I also have experience working in a residential treatment center and an inpatient behavioral health facility. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults. I am particularly interested in working with clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, school-related issues, pregnancy/birth related issues, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse issues.
I feel that healing begins with a strong foundation, so I am very relationship-oriented. I like to meet clients where they are and work towards a common goal. My style is eclectic, and I strive to individualize treatment for each client. I utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Practices. I am committed to creating a warm, nurturing, and safe environment for all.
