About Me

I am an Associate Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (ALMFT). I obtained my master’s degree from Northern Illinois University in Applied Human Development and Family Sciences with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. My bachelor’s degree was earned at North Central College in Psychology and Sociology. I am passionate about working with adolescents, adults, and couples. I have been able to work with a wide range of presenting concerns that include, but are not limited to anxiety, depression, relational distress, mood disorders, and life adjustment/ stressors.

I have completed training levels one and two of the Gottman Method. This extra training helps inform my work with couples. In addition to the Gottman approach, I gravitate towards Attachment Theory, CBT, Family Systems Theory, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy. I feel that these theories are comprehensive and help me see clients as unique individuals, and as members within their various complex systems. Despite gravitating towards these specific theories, I will pull from other theories to tailor a treatment that is best fit for my clients. I am a firm believer in therapy being a collaborative process and strives to have the client feel heard, feel comfortable, and be an active agent in their therapeutic journey.
