I'm a Life Coach and Consultant.
My true superpower is creativity, with a side of empathy.
I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology.
I have Master's level certification in Stress Management.
I became a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois in 2001 (until 2009), and a Nationally Certified Counselor in 2008 (present).
I served as a counselor for many years. I have created numerous therapeutic tools, games, and resources for clients and for other therapists. I've worked in mental health clinics, hospitals, and health clinics. I've worked with children, adults, families, couples, and individuals. I've served a multi-cultural population with varied incomes.
I am a published author. I journal, write fiction, therapeutic stories, short stories, poetry, encouragements, reference material, and more. Therapeutic stories are stories that help bring breakthrough, insight, and healing to the reader.
I received professional training in life coaching in 2013. Counseling/therapy tends to focus on mental illness and coaching tends to focus on behavior, health and wellness. As a coach with a counseling background, I'm able to recognize when a client needs more than traditional coaches are qualified to treat.
I believe in a holistic approach. That means the mind, body, and spirit are all connected and should be treated as a whole. I help clients achieve wellness through natural noninvasive means like talking, fresh air, exercise, de-cluttering, stress management, and eliminating negative thoughts. I'm currently working on certification in aromatherapy and hypnotherapy.
I offer services online, on the phone, through video, and in person for those in Chicago, Illinois. For more information, to schedule a free session, or to sign up for emails please contact me.
Thanks for taking time to learn about me. I look forward to learning more about you.
