More about me

Licensing: LCSW, CAADC, CHt
Years in Practice: 12
State: IL


I am a LCSW currently licensed in Illinois and Florida, I am also a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Illinois and am a certified hypnotherapist. Additionally I have a degree in behavioral forensics. I have worked in the field for going on 15 years assisting individuals with many concerns ranging from depression, anxiety, personality disorders, as well as all types of addiction disorders.

My therapy style is to meet the client where they are and work alongside them to address their concerns. I am not the expert of any clients, instead focusing on developing a trusting and respectful therapeutic relationship to begin to address the concerns of the client. My therapy styles range form cognitive behavioral therapy to hypnotherapy, utilizing what works best for the client and what they are most comfortable with.

ENtering therapy and asking for help is one of the most courageous things anyone can do, and I am here to assist you.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Skip is an awesome therapist. She really helped me from a point in my life where I wasn't at a very good place to a place where I am now feeling much happier. She knows a lot of methods too and is in general a very comforting person to talk to. I really appreciated my therapy with her

I've had many counsellors in the past, all of which have been helpful, but I can truly say that Skip has been the best fit for me so far. She just gets it. No matter what I'm dealing with (relationship problems, mental health issues, career path, etc.) she always seems to know exactly what I need to hear/how to create an open space for me to reflect and find the answers.
