Personal Statement

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor for the state of Illinois. I provide services for individuals, couples, and families. My services are of the highest quality, effective, affordable, and most importantly, free of stigma. I recognize it takes courage and strength to face emotional doubts. Freeing up your mind from emotional struggles allows you to focus on your personal, professional, and relationship goals.

We accept some insurance plans and provide a sliding scale for those who may be uninsured. Come talk to us. We are here to listen, understand, provide support, encouragement, and overall healing for healthy relationships and an emotionally balanced life.
