Hi and Welcome- 

I have been working as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor in the western suburbs of Illinois for over 30 years. During this time, I have gained expertise in helping individuals who are struggling with mood disorders, anxiety, substance abuse and dependency, loss or grief, life adjustments, and marriage or divorce family systems. My counseling sessions are designed to meet your pace and needs, and I strive to create a safe and respectful environment where you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and emotions. I look forward to meeting you and starting this journey with you. Let's begin your journey today.

It's wonderful that you have chosen to seek guidance in your life's journey. As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor with over 30 years of experience, I specialize in assisting individuals, couples, and families in overcoming challenges such as mood disorders, anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, life changes, and more. My approach to counseling creates a safe space where empathy and understanding are at the forefront. My Counseling is about what you want to accomplish, in an environment that is rich in empathy, rich in understanding, and where there is no judging. My counseling is unhurried and respectful of the pace at which you want and can work.  I am a partner in this process and assist clients to stay on the path, however, I do not always direct the path.   I look forward to meeting you and beginning your journey with you.  Let's chat ...

Telehealth Therapy Sessions

Telehealth has transformed mental health care and all my sessions are 100% online.  This a great resource to meet clients where they are physically and emotionally as well as removing any other clinical barriers to meeting with a counselor. Currently, I am offering all appointments via Telehealth using Google Meets.  The process begins with me sending you an email link.  This email link will allow you to join our scheduled appointment on the agreed-upon date and time.  Do not let the possible uncomfortableness of Telehealth keep you from reaching out.  I will walk you step by step to enable you to feel more comfortable with using Google Meets.   I do offer sessions by phone if needed.  
Please Reach out Today!​
