LCSW, CADC, CODP1 (Glen Ellyn)

    “As a social worker I have experience in many aspects of mental health treatment, but my primary focus is on substance and process addictions, trauma, depression, bipolar, and anxiety disorders. The therapeutic approaches I use most often include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing, and EMDR. My method of practice is simple: I am genuine and make my clients feel comfortable. I create that comfort by getting to know my clients and adapting therapy to fit their needs each time we meet. Regardless of what stressors my clients are facing, the most important aspect of their treatment is fostering a positive therapist-client relationship. I use the same approach when conducting groups and often like to let group participants drive the focus/topic of group for that session. My goal as a therapist is to assist my clients in making positive changes, while always remembering that the client is their own expert; my role is to provide guidance and support. I see adults and conduct groups in the Glen Ellyn office.”
