I have been serving Central Illinois for nearly 20 years as a therapist and community leader. In 2012, I was honored to be chosen as a recipient for a Forty Leaders Under 40 Award for my service and for dedication to helping children and families. More recently I was honored to be named one of 25 Women In Leadership for dedication to the betterment of families, companies, and the community at large. Wholeness is my passion for everyone I serve and that is why I chose the name “Whole Life Solutions, LLC” for our practice. I believe we all desire to be healthy, healed, and whole, but life can get in the way. Events and experiences throughout our lives shape us biologically, relationally, socially, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. At times they can overwhelm us with happiness and hope or sorrow and hopelessness or just lead us to want to numb our feelings in any way we can find. Life can be beautifully messy and sometimes we just need some help to sort it all out. We may hold tightly to false beliefs about our self-worth or the value of others. We reel with negative thoughts and emotions that tear us apart at our core. Our relationships may be toxic or feel beyond repair. The way we deal with it all may be destructive. All in an attempt to alleviate the pain.
I'm certified as a Clinical Trauma and Loss Consultant by the National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children and as an instructor in Psychological First Aid. I also started the Mental Health Matters community education program of the Mental Health Association on Illinois Valley, and partnered with Columbia University to bring the Teen Screen Suicide Prevention Program to the area as the first site in Illinois.
