Hello and Welcome!
I have been a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Illinois since 2004 and have provided care to a wide range of clients, groups, and individuals from parents, young children, adolescents, and adults. I have worked with clients from all walks of life and who present with challenges and concerns such as depression, anxiety, addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief and loss. Over the years because of my experience in a number of fields and have learned to navigate a great many systems such as child welfare, dual disorder treatment, and behavioral health. I am also a certified forensic interviewer and have worked with patients who have experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.
I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help. I also know how lonely suffering in silence can be. I am so delighted that you have chosen to step out and seek the help you need to achieve the greatness that is within you. I congratulate you on this first step and I hope to be able to help you in the future. Welcome!
