MSW, LCSW, CDWF
I enjoy working with children, individuals, families, and marriages. I also enjoy working with individuals to identify barriers, help them gain the skills necessary to move toward their goals, and ultimately strengthen them as a whole. I believe a strong marriage is the foundation of a healthy, functioning family and I enjoy helping clients navigate through difficult times to strengthen individually and as a couple. I previously worked in the foster care system, with both parents and children, and also have extensive experience working with children diagnosed with ADHD and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I received a Masters Degree in Social Work from Aurora University, graduating with certificates in Advanced Clinical Social Work and Medical Social Work, and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am certified in Daring Way™ (Dr. Brené Brown) clinical approach, have completed training in Emotionally Focused Couples’ Therapy, and continue ongoing education. I am married and enjoy spending time with my family, both of the human and dog variety. In my free time, I enjoy exploring local restaurants and cooking on my own.
