I have a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Lewis University and a Bachelor’s degree with a major in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am also a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
Methods and Approaches: Depending on the individual needs of the client, I enjoy utilizing a variety of therapeutic approaches including: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational and Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), somatic techniques to increase body awareness, and Art or Expressive Therapy techniques. I also like giving applied homework to better practice skills processed in sessions.
I enjoy going to concerts, bowling, watching baseball and football, reading, playing volleyball, and boxing classes.
