Tell us about yourself
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience, including specialized training and expertise in couples treatment.
My work with couples and individuals includes managing issues related to relationship concerns, infidelity, sexual compatibility, infertility, trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, parenting stress, and communication skills.
I hold a BA in Psychology and an M.Ed in Counseling from Loyola University Chicago. I am licensed in the state of Illinois. My practice is open to seeing adult clients for individual and couples telehealth sessions.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Startup! I am a counselor by trade, so learning the business and logistical aspects of building practice has been challenging. I am excited to be on my way and open, see clients, and continue to understand and improve along the way.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things and best things is not having a boss. You are your boss! So no one else is in the ring with you, but it’s great to have that independence and autonomy.
