I am a therapist, author, and speaker with a mission to help people lead fuller and more authentic lives every day. 

I’m passionate about helping people live their best lives and so I wrote the book, It's OK to Start with You, published by Our Sunday Visitor and available on Amazon.

I work with clients in my psychotherapy practice, Vita Optimum Counseling and Consulting, LLC, located just outside of Chicago.

I love giving workshops and have presented at SEEK2019, Notre Dame University, Deloitte Women’s Initiative, and Metro Education Foundation in the past. Click here to find out more about working with me.
