About Me

Hello!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois. I graduated from University of Pittsburgh with a dual Masters in Social Work and Public Health. My scope of practice has typically been with adults, however, I do have experience in youth crisis services as well. I provide supportive counseling and case management to adults with severe and persistent diagnoses. I have experience in the following areas; depression, anxiety, mood instability, psychosis, self-harming behaviors, personality disorders, relationship conflicts, stages of life problems and crisis intervention. I approach counseling from a holistic point of view to help clients get the services and support they need. I maintain a collaborative approach to treatment and incorporate motivational interviewing, harm-reduction, problem-focused as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I look forward to working with you!
