I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker serving clients in central Illinois. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Bradley University and a Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Illinois. Professionally, I have experience in social service and advocacy work, as well as, in providing diagnostic and therapy services to a wide range of clients.
I am passionate about providing safe, supportive, confidential services to each individual. I strive to meet clients with compassion and understanding so we can begin therapy with a foundation of trust. I use a collaborative approach to develop individualized goals and work with you to overcome challenges. I enjoy working with people of all ages and am experienced in helping with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, trauma, attachment issues, adjustment difficulties, family changes/divorce, and parenting issues.
I know that reaching out for therapy can be difficult, so I do my best to make the process as welcoming as possible. I want to help each of my clients find healing, hope, and peace by empowering positive change. I provide a relaxed, safe place to express yourself, where we can work together to find practical solutions to the challenges you may be facing.
