Does experience matter? I believe it does and my 27 years as a Licensed Psychologist in various medical, business and private practice will add to the skill and perspective that I bring to the table when we talk about your challenges in all areas of your life.
I have been a Licensed Psychologist for 27 years and have been in my own private practice in both Florida and Illinois. Previously in Chicago, I worked as a member of the Advocate Christ Hospital medical staff and as a Licensed Psychologist. It’s also where I did both my doctoral internship and residency.
I received my Doctorate degree from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois in 1996. My B.S. degree is from Loyola University/Mundelein College also in Chicago.
Before I became a Licensed Psychologist, I spent 15 years in business as Vice President of Administration and Director of Human Resources. That’s when I realized I wanted to help people in a more impactful and personal way. I then went back to school to receive my Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and become a Licensed Psychologist.
My two diverse careers in Administration and Clinical Psychology give me a unique perspective into the stresses of your workplace and your personal relationships. I apply this knowledge to both your career struggles and the personal issues you face in relationships and daily life.
My manner in therapy is approachable and down-to-earth. Our conversations will be mixed with laughter, plenty of stories and possibly tears (of both sadness and joy). I’m right in there with you looking at options for your life, suggesting different points of view, determining reluctances you may have, talking about patterns that I see as we discuss better ways to think, feel and approach your life. You will see we can talk about anything — nothing is out of reach. If you can’t tell your psychologist, who can you tell!
I am also a member of the Florida Psychological Association and a Certified Critical Incident Stress Debriefing Facilitator.
If you are looking for a professional to talk to who has a high degree of education and training, decades of experience in several key areas relevant to your life and who has a vocation to help people solve their problems, then we should talk.
Give me a call so we can begin on your beneficial journey of self-discovery and change.
