About Me

I've spent my life working to help others. My upbringing taught many lessons, the most valuable was probably that people choose their own path. Sometimes, the path is obstructed and it can take a long time to find, without help.

I approach topics from my client's perspective, to understand where they are in their life experience. Understanding my client is essential to me because it is their life, and their path, that I'm working to benefit.

Qualifications

Experience

I have provided therapy in a community mental health clinic, community agencies, worked with those in the criminal justice system and clinically supervised teams of clinical staff. My clients have been of all ages, racial make-up, genders and from all backgrounds.

Education

My college education was at the University of Illinois. I attained a Bachelor degree in Psychology, with a minor in criminal justice. My minor was important to me because I believe many in the criminal justice system have mental health needs that go untreated.

I received my Masters degree in Human Development Counseling from the University of Illinois in 2007.
