What is your background?

I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I double majored in psychology and sociology. I then went on to get my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Bradley University. After graduating from Bradley, I gained licensure as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and became Certified in Thanatology (CT).

What do you enjoy about counseling in general?

I have always known that I wanted to go into the mental health field to help others. Counseling has afforded me the opportunity to not only help others, but to give back to my community as well. I could not ask for a more meaningful combination as a career.

“Reach out for support. You are not alone in this fight and there are people (including myself) who want to hear your story. Mental health has a big impact on physical health, so it is important to make sure you take care of both during your cancer journey.”
