As a clinical professional counselor in the state of Illinois, I have provided consultation, training, and supervision to counselors-in-training for the past 12 years. I earned a PhD in Counselor Education & Supervision from Northern Illinois University, a MS degree in Community Counseling from DePaul University, and a BA degree from University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Sociology and Women Studies. I have taught and supervised counselors-in-training at several universities, including, DePaul University, Northwestern University, Adler University, and Northern Illinois University. I maintain a limited clinical practice working with adults with anxiety and depression, as well as trauma and PTSD.

Teaching Interests

As a counselor educator, I am interested in courses across the CMHC curriculum including, counseling skills, group counseling, assessment & diagnosis, treatment planning, supervision, and practicum/internship. In my teaching practice I utilize constructivist approaches, engaging students as co-creators of the classroom learning experience.

Research Interests

My research areas parallel my teaching interests. I am interested in clinical supervision of practicing counselors using trauma-informed theories, development of trauma-informed practice in agency settings, relational development in supervision, and relational-cultural theory as educational practice.

Consulting Interests

I provide consultation and training to agencies and organizations regarding trauma-informed counseling and supervision practice as well as training in supervision utilizing relational-cultural theory. I also specialize in domestic violence and sexual assault counseling and supervision practice.
