"We just aren't connecting like we used to....We are having serious trust issues within our relationship." These are my favorite concerns to address with couples! I also enjoy working with clients who feel stuck or need help tackling lack of motivation and energy.
I am a licensed clinical social worker in the states of Indiana and Illinois. I have been providing mental health services for over 13 years. I have assisted numerous individuals from diverse populations throughout my career. I have worked with clients with concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work-related issues, and emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. I also have experience working with clients with addiction concerns.
I genuinely enjoy interacting with my clients and my counseling style is warm and engaging. I believe therapeutic alliance is of the utmost importance in assisting clients in setting and reaching goals. My approach includes strength based, cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing and solution focused counseling. I believe that every client is unique and responds to concerns differently. This belief causes me to tailor my approach, interaction, and treatment plan specifically for my client.
