My Approach

Over 25 years of helping others heal.

I am a Certified IFS and EMDR therapist.  

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) working with adults for the past 25 years to help increase their self-confidence, happiness, and wellbeing. 


My therapy approach integrates, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), attachment work, and mindfulness practices. We work in collaboration to understand the root causes of your struggles and address these challenges with strategies that help you move forward with hope and fulfillment. I believe that we have the capacity, with reflection and connection, to bring forth new possibilities.


I specialize in healing the resulting effects of trauma. Traumatic experiences can affect the way the brain processes and stores information. The memories, along with the images, emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations associated with them, do not feel as though they are truly in the past and can resurface in ways that feel overwhelming. 

My approach supports the release of trauma held in the mind and body, integrating the traumatic events and creating a sense of greater wholeness.  With the gentle approach of IFS and attachment work along with the reprocessing of past events with EMDR, you can resolve past events in order to alleviate current symptoms, triggers, and distress from troubling memories. You can begin to feel a greater sense of ease, relief, and freedom.  

My style as a therapist is warm, compassionate, and interactive. You embody the wisdom needed to work through your concerns and I provide support and guidance as you navigate your healing process.


I received my Bachelor of Science and my Master of Social Work from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
