I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor providing counseling and educational services for families, teens, young adults, individuals and couples.
Education: MS, Counseling Psychology, Benedictine University. Post-graduate clinical training, Family Systems, Institute for Juvenile Research, University of Illinois at Chicago.
I currently teach in the Psychology Department at Elmhurst College. Over the years, I have counseled individuals, families and couples at Lutheran Social Services of Illinois and provided prevention educational services to families through research conducted at University of Illinois at Chicago.
Both personally and professionally, I am surrounded by teens and young adults on a daily basis. I am committed to understanding the unique educational, relational, and ever-changing technology challenges faced by this generation. I find our young people to be adaptable, socially-minded and highly pressured.
The core of the family is you. I meet with parents individually and/or with families together to promote meaningful connections with those we love most.
A major objective of my work is to establish understanding and support for teens/tweens, young adults and their parents as they navigate the turbulent years between childhood and adulthood.
