I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 10 years of experience in providing psychotherapy and crisis intervention to people of all ages.

 I completed my undergraduate work at Carthage College in Wisconsin, and my masters at The University of Illinois at Chicago. I have a specialty in working with children and families.

I have worked for over 10 years in the crisis department of a behavioral health hospital and also serving as the manager of that department.  I am skilled performing clinical assessments and managing crisis situations.   

I have been in private practice for more than 7 years.  My areas of specialty include: pregnancy and postpartum struggles, depression, anxiety, bipolar, self injury, and eating disorders.   

 My approach to therapy is initially focused on symptom relief and stabilization of mood.   Ongoing therapy is more insight directed and supportive, development of skills and problem solving is key in order to address each individual's unique life circumstances.   

I use a number of therapeutic techniques to help promote and support change and success.  Such approaches may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Model, Exposure and Response Prevention and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.  My expectation is that the patient and therapist both be dynamically involved in the process of treatment to accomplish the best therapeutic outcome.
