Welcome everyone! ~ I'm so glad you're looking into resources for healing and improving your life! For 20 years, I had been the owner of a group practice based in Naperville, Illinois. Recently I have branched out on my own and offer all of the clinical and consulting work myself. My practice is now based in Yorkville, Illinois.
I provide mental health assessments and treatment for Illnois residents age 18 and older. Also offering wellness consultation, spiritual guidance, life coaching services, and practice consultation for adult clients worldwide.
Hello and welcome to my profile! I truely believe people can heal from and accomplish almost anything, if they're open to it and work towards their goals in positive ways. I take a holistic approach to therapy, healing, and growth (mind, body, and spirit). In my personal life, I am a spiritual person and tend to incorporate that aspect into my work. I'm currently offering clinical counseling services to adults residing in Illinois. Wellness consultation, life coaching, spiritual guidance, and practice consultation are offered worldwide.
A little more about me... I have lived in Illinois my entire life and love the midwest. I have a great husband and awesome 11 year old boy, and am a strong believer in the importance of family values. Some other things I love~ nature, hiking, biking, RV camping, astronomy/astrology, gardening, collecting crystals and stones, jewelry making, and decorating. Additionally, I often spend time studying holistic health and incorporating those teachings into my personal life. When completely relaxing I like reading novels.
