I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and the Director of Operations & Intake at Midwest Counseling & Diagnostics in Chicago, Illinois. With almost 20 years of experience in the mental health field, I specialize in supporting adults through life's challenges, drawing from my expertise in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) techniques.

My therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in humility, compassion, and mindfulness. I believe in creating a safe and warm environment where clients can explore their world with curiosity and acceptance. Through collaboration and genuine connection, I guide my clients towards healing and growth, empowering them to cultivate resilience and live more fulfilling lives that are aligned with their values.

Certified in EMDR and extensively trained in DBT, I integrate evidence-based practices with compassion, warmth, and humor to provide effective and personalized therapy. Deciding to make a change, no matter how small, is a significant decision. Change (even when wanted) can be challenging, and I see therapy as a unique opportunity to gain understanding, insight, and direction. Together, we can work towards your goals, build a strong commitment to your future, empowering you to take control of your life.

Outside of therapy, you'll often find me catching up on my Star Trek shows, spending quality time with my family, friends, and any dog that crosses my path. I also have no trouble falling down the odd internet rabbit hole when trying to remember the name of that one actor in that one film and then end up knowing their entire history and biography.

I welcome you to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation together, where healing is accompanied by laughter, exploration, and, where appropriate, the occasional deep dive into sci-fi trivia.
