Practices In: Romeoville
Patients Seen: All Ages

I am a licensed clin­i­cal coun­selor and art ther­a­pist and have held sev­er­al posi­tions with­in the field of men­tal health ser­vice and high­er edu­ca­tion as ded­i­cat­ed prac­ti­tion­er, fac­ul­ty, board mem­ber, super­vi­sor and cur­rent art therapy/​neuroscience research doc­tor­al stu­dent at Mount Mary Uni­ver­si­ty. I recent­ly relo­cat­ed from San­ta Fe, NM and my expe­ri­ence is rich with transper­son­al approach­es, somat­ic mind­ful­ness and ground­ed cre­ative expres­sive modal­i­ties at its core. Col­lab­o­rat­ing with diverse clients ful­fills my deep sense of loy­al­ty to the heal­ing poten­tial inher­ent in each of us. My vision is to devel­op the self-improv­ing capac­i­ty with­in every­one that I have the hon­or of work­ing with. I am grate­ful to be in a field that com­pas­sion­ate­ly address­es human suf­fer­ing and calls for the uni­fi­ca­tion of sci­ence and art to improve qual­i­ty of life and well­be­ing for all.

Clinical Interests

I spe­cial­ize in com­plex trau­ma, mood dis­or­der, and addic­tion and work with chil­dren age 7 and up, adults, cou­ples and fam­i­ly sys­tems deal­ing with social­iza­tion, rela­tion­al dynam­ics and life tran­si­tion adjust­ment. Using art ther­a­py assess­ments and indi­vid­u­al­ized direc­tives treat­ment is designed to reg­u­late the ner­vous sys­tem allow­ing for new per­spec­tives to emerge, trau­ma to rec­on­cile and a healthy sense of self to inte­grate. Bring­ing patients into a state of coher­ence and abil­i­ty to con­nect is the ulti­mate goal deter­min­ing success.

Personal Interests

I am a new moth­er of boy/​girl twins and enjoy the art of par­ent­ing. I am an artist who enjoys water­col­or, poet­ry and assem­blage. I am inspired by nature and look for the beau­ty of intel­li­gence in the world around me.
