At this time I am accepting new clients interested in individual, family, and group therapy services. I accept private insurance and also see those who are able to self pay. If I am not currently an in-network provider under your insurance plan I am happy to discuss the possibility of working with your insurance to become an in-network provider. In the meantime, you may have out-of-network provider benefits available for mental health services. I encourage you to check you benefits prior to contacting me, but I will gladly contact your insurance to check your benefits with your permission. I am able to accept credit card payments (Discover, MasterCard, and Visa) for your convenience as well.
Individual and Family Services
Typically I see clients every week or every other week initially, and as progress is made we see each other less frequently, as we agree is appropriate to meet your needs. The first appointment will be a thorough assessment of your needs, so plan to reserve approximately 90 minutes for this session. Following appointments are typically 45-60 minutes in length.
Please contact me regarding the status of groups you may be interested in, as some are closed groups and others have open enrollment. When a group is “closed” it simply means that the same group of individuals will attend the group for a set amount of time prior to a new group starting. I am happy to put you on a waiting list for the next group if you wish. The following group is available at this time:
Facing Your Fears Group
A 14-week long therapy group to assist children ages 8-14 on the Autism spectrum with better dealing with their anxiety. Each session is 90 minutes in length. There is a booster session to review new skills after two months as well. There is a required family component to this group, so at least one parent or caregiver must attend. There are two facilitators for this group, one to work primarily with the children and another to work primarily with parents. Facing Your Fears curriculum has research-based effectiveness. More research information about the program is available here. To become a member of the next group, please contact me.
Clinical Supervision Services
After receiving a Master’s in Social Work, individuals interested in becoming licensed to practice in the State of Illinois must complete several hours of professional employment while they receive weekly clinical supervision from a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have experience providing this supervision, a service that both my supervisees and myself grow from professionally! I am open to providing supervision or to groups of individuals. Please contact me so we can discuss availability and rates.
