LPC (Glen Ellyn)
I have always been passionate about working in environments that allow me to help others. Before becoming a therapist, I spent time working as an aid in a therapeutic day school for children and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This experience taught me so much about the importance of relationships and greatly informed my approach and interests as a therapist.
After completing my Masters program, I returned to working in therapeutic day schools as a therapist. In this setting, I have had the opportunity to work closely with a wide variety of students between the ages of 6 and 19, as well as their families. Despite the fact that all of the students I have worked with are uniquely different, I have continued to see just how crucial a strong relationship is within a therapeutic setting. I try my best with all clients to develop a genuine understanding of their interests, and continually demonstrate how much they matter as a person.
I am passionate about fostering a safe and trusting environment and in doing so, helping others to overcome challenging circumstances and achieve their long-term goals. I tend to work through a Person Centered and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy lens, but try to pull from a variety of modalities to meet my clients where they’re at.
