Populations: Adult, Family, Group, Seniors, Teens. Specialties: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Grief and Loss, Mood Disorders, and Substance Abuse. Interventions: CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused, and Strengths Based. I entered social work because I have always enjoyed helping people, and appreciate that social work can involve a variety of different practices. I focus on people's strengths and how they can use their strengths to make positive changes. It is important to meet the patient where they are. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists, and other providers to coordinate my patients' care.
Self-care is something that is very important to me, and I make an effort to do some every day. Music and the arts have always been a passion of mine. I am also a big sports fan, especially baseball. Go Cubs! I also enjoy travel, being active, reading, and flowers.
