I have worked for over 20 years in a broad range of settings including school social work (both high school and elementary school levels), outpatient clinical therapy, medical social work and hospital settings. In addition I owned and taught at a yoga studio for 9 years. I continue to incorporate meditation and mindfulness into my approaches as they fit with you as an RYT (registered yoga teacher). 

Evidenced based expertise, experience, knowledge, a sense of humor, enthusiasm and passion are all incorporated to assist you to return to self empowerment.  Often described as warm, authentic, and down to earth, we will work as a team explore problem solving. 

I firmly believe that my broad range of experiences enhances my ability to connect empathetically, understand deeply, and facilitate meaningful growth and healing in those I serve.

In addition to individual therapy you are also invited to participate in a therapeutic yoga processing group (Closer to Fine) that has been in existence since 2018 that is now being offered right here at Resolve Counseling PLLC in Naperville.   

Special interests are dogs and cats!  Many years have been spent volunteering at the Naperville Humane Society and I am the proud owner of a rescued dog and cat!

I am truly honored to do what I do and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your journey to resolve any perceived obstacles in your way.

I look forward to getting started with you!    

Don't hesitate to reach out.
