Springfield, Illinois


Since 2010, I have been in private practice as an independent couples and individual counseling practitioner. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Valdosta State University and a Master of Arts degree in Human Development Counseling from University of Illinois at Springfield. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and a National Certified Counselor.

Relationships can be intense, especially in today’s fast-paced society. Unexpected situations may develop that require a couple to know how to utilize specific skills to stay connected and improve overall well-being. I integrate both the Developmental Model and the Gottman Method to create specific treatment plans to help couples learn the skills they need to recognize the good in each other and reconnect for a loving, healthy relationship. I have additional knowledge, training, and experience in helping couples and individuals navigate their infertility journey.

I offer both in-office and virtual appointments. My office is located in Springfield, IL. Let me help you find your place of confidence, joy, peace, and connection. I look forward to being a beacon of hope for you.
