Biography

In my 20+ years as a psychotherapist I have been fortunate to have experienced working in a variety of agencies and settings that provided opportunities to learn from the clients whose lives have intersected with mine and from the professionals who have guided me along the way.  I received my BS in psychology and sociology from Bradley University, Peoria, IL, in 1994.  I earned my Masters in Social Work from the University of IL Urbana-Champaign in 1997.  I am licensed in the State of IL as a Clinical Social Worker, and I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor via IAODAPCA in Illinois.

I opened my private practice in September, 2006, and have developed a specialty working with those who are experiencing issues with fertility.  I facilitate a free, open to the public, monthly support group for couples called the Reproductive Challenges Networking Group which meets the second Thursday of each month.  Those attending receive education about various aspects relating to infertility, assisted reproductive technology procedures such as IVF, third party reproduction such as donor eggs/embryos and gestational carriers, etc.  The couples also have the opportunity to network and receive emotional support from others who understand what it’s like to struggle in the fertile world.
