I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselor (CAADC) with extensive clinical experience in both the mental health and addictions fields. I received my Master of Social Work from Loyola University Chicago and my BA in Business Administration from Georgetown College.
I am the Owner of New Hope Recovery Center located in Lincoln Park where I serve as their President and Clinical Director as well as maintain my private practice located in Lincoln Square. Additionally, I have had clinical positions at The Center on Halsted, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago Lakeshore Hospital, Lutheran Social Services of Illinois and New Hope Recovery Center.
My areas of expertise include working with the LGBTQQI community, addiction in all its forms, mental health issues, trauma and holistic recovery. I utilize a eclectic approach to wellness and am a strong believer in meeting the client where they're at. My hope is that we'll work as a team and determine what tools work best for you in your ongoing best health. There are many pathways to recovery and being a hands on therapist choose to believe we'll find what best works for you!
