First, I want you to know the kind of client I tend to have the most success helping so that you can quickly determine whether or not I might be a good fit for you.
*They come ready to work and understand that therapy is a process that takes time, honesty, and commitment on their part.
*Some have been to a therapist before, but were turned off by the way the therapist took a passive approach to therapy, just listening and nodding. I am an active participant in your treatment.
*They appreciate that honest and straightforward feedback is a principle followed in our practice, and that our in-house psychiatrist allows us to provide a team approach for those who receive medication.
*They are committed to their own growth and are ready to do the work necessary to move forward.
Second, my qualifications.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of post graduate experience in mental health counseling. I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology from Eastern Illinois University and my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois.
My experience has been gained in a variety of settings including various hospital inpatient departments (NICU, Mother/Baby, Emergency Dept.), Easter Seals working with special needs children and their families, Hospice, Child Welfare, Private Practice, and Community Behavioral Health. I have held different level positions in my career from direct service provider up to COO, from a staff of 6 up to 250. My real life experience in both of my areas of specialization enhances my ability to understand the unique situations found in both.
