My purpose in life is to share my abilities to accept people for who they are and provide a safe place for them to express their authentic self. My true passion is to connect and be present with people during their time of change and uncertainty. I have worked in the field for over 20 years and my experience has been vast with inpatient therapy, day hospital programs, intensive outpatient, crisis counseling and therapeutic day school programming.
I am a native of the North side of Chicago and attended Chicago Public Schools from K-12 grade. I am a mother of 3 daughters, married for 12 years and love being a dance mom but not like Abby Lee’s Dance Moms. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching football and basketball and love to laugh. I feel laughter is very important to have in my life. I love to sing, dance, read and watch Investigation Discovery. I am excited about working as your therapist at From the Heart Counseling and look forward to getting to know you.
