I received my masters degree in social work from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana.

For ten years I worked as a staff therapist at one of the most prestigious psychiatric hospitals in the country. As a core therapist at the Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital,  I gained an extensive background in treating depression, anxiety, and bipolar issues. I also specialize in working with gender and sexually diverse individuals 

Currently in addition to my private practice, I teach classes on a variety of topics, including ways to improve communication, how to live a healthy more balanced life, and how to manage negative or unhelpful thoughts.

I am on the Board of Directors of Upswing Advocates, a nonprofit organization serving the mental health needs of the LGBTQIA community. I recently lectured on Personal Growth through Kink at the 2017 conference held by CARAS (Community-Academic Consortium for Research on Alternative Sexualities) and co-facilitate For Us, a monthly queer-affirming class addressing issues prevalent among the transgender community. You can find more information on this class here.
