I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified alcohol and drug addiction counselor who has been working in the behavioral health field since 2011. I received my bachelors’ and masters’ degrees with honors from Aurora University in Aurora, Illinois.
I have a wide array of experience working with special populations such as autism spectrum disorder, developmentally disabled/ dual diagnosed adults, chronic mental illness and addictions. I have treated many conditions such as anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar, and borderline personality disorders. I utilize treatment modalities such as grief counseling, CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, and others based on your needs.
I have learned through my own experiences that life has a way of revealing some of the greatest moments, the toughest blows, and the deepest insight only to strengthen and prepare you for the next cycle of change in life. My goal as your therapist is to support you on your journey through life, wherever you are, to self revelation.
Fun Fact: I'm a lover of music and tacos :)
