Behavioral & Mental Health (IPD), Counseling

Practices In: Romeoville
Patients Seen: Adults

I am friend­ly, warm and infor­mal in my per­son­al style. I want my patients to feel very com­fort­able and under­stood. I seek to under­stand my patients very well — in terms of the emo­tion­al pain that they are cur­rent­ly in, and also past expe­ri­ences from child­hood that may impact the way that they view and poten­tial­ly shape their worlds I believe strong­ly that ther­a­py can cre­ate change.

Behav­ioral & Men­tal Health insur­ance cov­er­age varies by provider.
