My style is warm, with a desire to continually learn and use new skills that best suit the "hopeful" and the "hopeless". My life has been spent working with individuals and families and their experiences with sexual, substance, or physical abuse and trauma.
I have discovered that the skills learned are transferable to all populations and that our past does not determine our future. Peace and harmony are qualities that can be learned and then transmitted to current and future relationships regardless of the pain we are currently experiencing.
I am a Board Certified Diplomate in clinical social work, a certified Level II EMDR practitioner, an alumna of the Chicago Family Institute two year post-graduate program in marriage and family therapy and a field instructor for advanced level student practitioners. This resource allows EnCourage Counseling to provide more affordable services when appropriate.
