It’s hard to know where to start when it comes to your mental health. Sometimes, struggling with thoughts can be overwhelming and terrifying. It is difficult to understand what to do when you feel like there is no way out or no end in sight. Let’s take that first step together toward healing, and begin your journey.
My passion is working to find that perfect balance, personalizing therapy to exactly what is needed. This includes looking at a person holistically, meaning that I believe that each aspect of a person is intimately interconnected. A person is not just one symptom or label, but a complicated and amazing sum of parts. I want to hear and understand your goals, and make a plan to help you achieve them.
I am currently earning my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Loyola University Chicago. I value working with clients in many areas of mental health. These may include anxiety, depression, life transitions, LGBTQIA+, self-esteem, identity, grief, trauma, and many others. I use a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) approach, as I want to explore how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected. I also use mindfulness, where I will guide you through the path of awareness and acceptance of your feelings, thoughts, and body. Furthermore, motivational interviewing, active listening, and empathetic understanding are all essential to me.
Most of all, I want to create a safe space for healing and understanding.
