If you need someone on your side of the table, I welcome the opportunity to assist you.

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find the information provided here useful.

Children with disabilities are entitled to appropriate educational services and supports. Trying to secure special education services can be overwhelming, intimidating and complex for most parents. As a special education advocate, I teach parents about their rights, help them navigate the IEP process, and assist them in holding the school accountable for providing needed services. If you need someone on your side of the table, I welcome the opportunity to assist you.

Serving families on Chicago’s North Shore.

Obtaining an appropriate education is only one of the challenges families face on a daily basis. It can be overwhelming and stressful to parent a child with special needs. In addition to providing advocacy services, I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience working with families. My perspective toward family therapy has been molded both by my experience as a clinical social worker and as a parent of a child with special needs. I have tremendous empathy for the impact that parenting a child with special needs can have on a marriage, sibling relationships and social life. I can provide you and your children with compassionate, solution-oriented counseling to help you manage stress, improve your family relationships, and develop coping strategies. My counseling services include individual, couple and family therapy, as well as parent and sibling groups.

I look forward to the opportunity to discuss your concerns.
