BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE
I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Illinois since 2007. I have ten years of experience in direct service mental health private practice. Additionally, I have been a social worker in the Central Illinois area for 25 years with extensive experience in family issues, trauma, adverse childhood experiences, grief and loss.
I have a certification in Compassion Fatigue (CCFP) for helping professionals and first responders. Additionally, I have a specialization certification in the treatment of personality disorders (CPDTP) with specific emphasis on treatment for those impacted by a person with a diagnosed or a suspected Cluster B Personality Disorder. I also recently completed a certification in Telemental Health and Digital Ethics to better protect your privacy and confidentiality during telehealth sessions.
My approach is non confrontational, validating, and supportive. It is my privilege to work with individuals who are motivated to better understand themselves and committed to improving their functioning and being their best selves.
