My experience and educational background are directly related and have provided me with a well-rounded background in Therapy. I am a Military veteran with 30 plus years of experience, working with patients in psychiatric hospitals, state mental health facilities, Illinois Department of Corrections, and in private practice. I am currently licensed to practice in Illinois, Kansas and Georgia. I also provide Tele-health service to Military members overseas (OCONUS).
My personal and professional goal is building close bonds with my clients. I enjoy doing this by using humor, genuine care, and respect of each individual to create a serene therapeutic environment. Through emphatic listening, relaxation exercises, cognitive behavior therapy, clients are able to persevere in pursuance of achieving goals.
At DCC, we offer individual, group, couple, and family therapy for children and adults. We work with clients experiencing life transitions with depression, anxiety, grief, loss, trauma, and addictions. I work in-depth with Military families to assess and treat behavioral health problems that result from the trauma of service and war.
