I am a licensed clinical professional counselor with experience working in both institutional and community settings. I received my Master’s degree in Forensic Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a concentration in Public Service from Albion College.
Every person is unique, with different experiences that have shaped their lives. Keeping this in mind, I do not prescribe to a specific theory that is utilized with all of my patients. I strive to use a variety of techniques to help each of my patients. Together I want us to decide what works best for you and what has the most impact on your life.
It is not my job to change anything that has happened in an individual’s life. My job is to help my patients explore their difficulties and work to develop the necessary skills and tools to accept their situation and move forward to achieve their best life possible. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in both individual and group settings dealing with varying life difficulties including, trauma and abuse, depression, anxiety, stress, interpersonal relationship challenges, and coping with incarceration.
Outside of working I enjoy spending time with my family, including my new baby and two dogs, devouring as many books as I can get my hands on, and exploring the many restaurants, museums, and cultural events around town.
