Survivors of suicide
Survivors of losing someone to suicide
I decided on a career in therapy when I realized that people need to be heard, especially when they are feeling stuck. I found myself working as a Nursing Assistant with a plan to become a nurse. One day, I was sitting on the bed listening to a woman with tons of lived experience share just a snapshot of her life. She also talked to me about the worries that she had and how she was dealing with changes. This is when I realized that my passion was for helping people, but in a different way than I had thought.
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I will walk with you as we work together to develop behavior and life style changes to help you take back control of your life. We will work to find solutions that will last long-term and make the most effective change.
I have worked with people coming from all walks of life from a variety of backgrounds. It is important to me to provide a safe space where people are able to look inward and work on their growth. Respect and empathy are part of everything that I do.
Aside from being a trained psychotherapist, I am also a certified WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) facilitator. I have worked with people managing depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, grief, psychosis, and other life circumstances. It is important to remember that this is your experience! I would be honored to walk through it with you.

In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Ken, and our dog, Ivy. I love to travel, go to auctions and flea markets, try new food, and see live music. I have lived in Illinois all of my life and am originally from a tiny town of 200 people. I have embraced the change to the city life of Peoria, but still enjoy escaping to the country every now and then.
