Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

Allow me to briefly introduce myself to you and tell you about my background and experience.

I obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from an American Psychological Association approved program at Argosy University/Phoenix in 2007. I am licensed as a psychologist in Illinois and I have worked with a wide variety of clients in both psychiatric hospitals and private practice therapeutic settings. I have extensive experience in working with men, women, couples, and families as they navigate through various life stages and challenges.   

I strive to create a supportive, non-judgmental, open, and comfortable environment that allows people to process and share their innermost thoughts and feelings. I believe that people can find inner peace and happiness and I approach therapy from a strengths based perspective. My approach is to develop a trusting collaborative relationship as I works with my clients to identify and work toward attainment of your personal goals. I practice primarily from a Cognitive-Behavioral perspective, while also integrating psychodynamic, eclectic, person-centered, and supportive approaches to meet the needs of each individual client. I consider my style to be straightforward, supportive, compassionate, and oftentimes filled with humor.
