I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience and a member of the National Association of Social Workers and Postpartum Support International. I graduated in 2001 from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor’s in Social Work and Psychology. In 2004, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Master’s in Social Work. I also have a Master’s of Education- Administration and Supervision from National Louis University. I have experience in residential settings, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, outpatient centers, and school social work and administration. I have extensive experience working with survivors of various traumas, including sexual assaults, domestic violence, and abuse and neglect.
I have completed the two day certificate program from Postpartum Support International to further my knowledge and understanding of the complex issues women and men face after the birth of a child, as well as some issues after the loss of a pregnancy or infant. I utilize mindfulness and stress reduction techniques in my counseling. I also work with those who are trying to conceive. I am well aware of the difficulty of balancing family life with work and other commitments and can assist in figuring out how to be comfortable and content in their life.
My practice is focused mostly on those who are coping with anxiety and depression as well as perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The experience of starting a family is not always the path that we have envisioned and can include miscarriage, infertility, stillbirth and infant loss. There are also many emotions that can intensify during the perinatal period that can lead to significant stress. These can be related to hormonal changes or an exacerbation to underlying issues with the changes in life. Individuals as well as couples sometimes find it beneficial to start counseling before any issues are actually arising to assist in navigating the experience.
I believe therapy is a great way to maintain balance in one’s life. There does not need to be a crisis to begin counseling. We all have experiences that cause us stress and sometimes don’t even realize the full impact until we are able to sit down with someone and talk through them. I believe that the therapeutic process is best when it is one of safety, nonjudgmental reflection, and self-exploration to get a person to a space in which they feel content and satisfied. There is no reason to not feel satisfied in life and therapy is great way to release whatever is holding us back.
