My Counseling Approach

My approach is to provide support, guidance and practical feedback helping you effectively address personal life challenges. My goal is to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to enjoy your relationships and lead a more fulfilling life.

I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Positive Psychology and mindfulness practices to offer a more personal and individual approach. I would be honored to partner with you exploring self-care practices and new and healthier was of communicating and interacting with others. With compassion and understanding, I will help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.

My Background

During my career, I worked in a variety of settings including schools, a residential treatment program, an outpatient community mental health clinic, a non-profit post adoption program, and was co-owner of a group private practice. My experience includes work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.

Growing up in Minnesota, I attended graduate and undergraduate schools there and worked as a Licensed Psychologist for many years. In 2004, we moved to the northwest suburbs of Chicago where I worked as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor for 9 years. In 2013, we moved to Houston and I started my private practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor. In August 2019, my husband and I moved back to the northwest suburbs of Chicago and I am happy to be practicing again in the Chicago area!
