About Me

I previously worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 8 years in Illinois.  I conducted custody evaluations and testified in court proceedings regarding custody recommendations and findings.  Because of this previous experience, I bring a unique expertise to cases involving mental health and psychological issues.
