My office is located downtown Chicago adjacent to Union Station and a short walking distance from Ogilvie Metra. This makes access convenient from any area in the Chicagoland.

A biopsychosociospiritual emphasis
I subscribe to a biopsychosociospiritual approach to counseling. This means that in confronting issues one must look at the entire person including biological, psychological, social, and spiritual factors that influence the healing process. All of these aspects to a person’s life interact together to form a complete picture of what someone might be experiencing.
God-centered vs. person-centered
Issues related to each individual’s life journey include the search for meaning; learning how to embrace the fullness of joy and love in the context of relationships; developing coping skills and thriving in spite of inevitable difficulties, disappointments, anxieties, and sufferings; and dealing with life transitions and end-of-life concerns. My approach incorporates elements of person-centered theory in terms of unconditional positive regard, empathy, genuineness, and compassion for persons of all backgrounds. However, a difference is found in the shift to being God-centered and faith-based.
The healing process
Focus is on restoring and developing a person’s dignity, strengths, and God-given talents for problem-solving, personal growth, and achievement. This is all in a practical and down-to-earth effort to bring the healing love of Jesus Christ to those seeking and desiring help.
All counseling is confidential and adheres to the professional standard of ethics.
A sense of dedication
I believe that my work as a counselor is a vocation and strive to remain faithful to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Persons from all walks of life are respected and welcome.
I dedicate my work in counseling to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
