Psychology has been a passion of mine since high school. I attended Governors State University where I achieved my Master’s in Social Work. The majority of my training during graduate school focused on an underserved population with mental illness and psychological disorders that required a higher level of care.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with experience and dedication. Currently licensed in the state of Illinois, I am expanding my reach to make a positive impact in more communities. In addition, I am licensed in the state of Utah, Texas, Arkansas, and Virginia.
In addition to my clinical work, I serve as a registered Supervisor with the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) for clinical supervision. I have also contracted with Governors State University as a Field Supervisor, providing guidance and mentorship to students/interns completing their graduate studies.
Through these experiences, I have gained a deep appreciation for the challenges clients face in treatment and recovery. Mental illness has an incredible impact on family, social environments, and labor. I work to identify areas of concern, create a treatment plan, and aid to reduce symptoms.
I utilize motivational interviewing and a faith-based, goal-oriented approach to meet clients where they are in their journey. I am able to partner with them to help the process of healing within to reach their full potential.
When I am not in the office, I am enjoying quality time with my devoted husband and lovely two daughters on a nice vacation, or you might see me rolling around on roller or ice skates. If I appear deeply indulged just know that I am protecting your privacy by not approaching you however, I will definitely stop for a quick hello if you address me.
You deserve to live
a happier, healthier life.
