I received my Master’s of Arts Degree in Community Counseling from Argosy University, in Schaumburg, Illinois. I have obtained specialized training in Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and in domestic partner abuse intervention and prevention. I have worked in the mental health field for five years in both inpatient and outpatient facilities. Prior to my counseling career, I worked for twenty years in corporate America where I was a manager and a leader of change.
In addition to my position at Portrait, I also work full time as a Mental Health and Addictions Counselor for a community based agency in Rockford, Illinois. I have three grown children and two beautiful granddaughters whom I enjoy spending time with. When not busy with my career or with my family, I like reading, writing, thrift store shopping, dining out, and baking. I am also an animal lover who would like to open up a sanctuary for homeless people and pets someday.
