Sometimes you just need a safe place to freely express yourself. I have been in the field for 25+ years and have truly enjoyed helping countless clients with depression, grief/loss, life transitions, coping with chronic physical illness (including autoimmune), holistic and self-healing techniques, stress and pain reduction, spirituality, and relationships.
I am excited about my new book entitled “The Blueprint for Vibrant Health: A Guide to Healing the Mind, Body, and Spirit.” (Amazon).
Also, feel free to check out the Professional Book Review "Book Review: The Blueprint for Vibrant Health" by MSW Writes.
Since 2000, I have been the owner of a group practice based in Naperville, Illinois. I am also the author of a book entitled "The Blueprint for a Successful Practice" (Amazon) and provide consultations.
I am usually easily available weekdays during the day. However, if you require an evening or weekend appointment please feel free to let me know. I will do my best to accommodate.
I am highly spiritual and tend to incorporate that aspect into the therapy process. I believe people can heal from almost anything, if they are open to it and work towards their goals in a positive way. I take a holistic approach to therapy and healing - mind, body, and spirit.
