I earned a M.S. Degree in Counselor Education from Western Illinois University in 2003 and am licensed by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). I have worked as a school counselor since graduating in 2003 and own a private practice - Urban Balance Therapy and Consulting, PLLC - since 2020. I have extensive experience working with youth of all ages 5-18. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families.
Since 2005, I have been working with individuals and families from the QC community in some way. Because of this experience, my practice is systems orientated. This allows for understanding ourselves as individuals as well as ourselves in the context of our most important relationships, communities and culture. I also use the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model to help individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma and relational issues align their behaviors with their values.
Taking care of your mental health can help you live life the best way you can - authentically, with purpose and passion. We regularly take time to care for our prized possessions, things like our homes and cars, but often neglect our minds, hearts, and bodies. Don't forget to slow down to invest in yourself, and find your balance.
