Bio

Feeling disconnected from ourselves, having trouble coping with distressing emotional experiences, and even difficulty functioning in important areas of life can become overwhelming. It is during these challenging times that I accompany my clients on their journey to learn about themselves and discover their resiliency and power to grow.

I strive to help my clients deepen their self-awareness and build upon their strengths so that they can empower themselves to create intentional, meaningful changes in their lives and relationships. I believe a key to effective therapy is a strong therapeutic relationship that fosters a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. To do this, I value authenticity, openness and cultural awareness with each of my clients.

I approach therapy by integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Person-Centered therapeutic techniques while focusing on creating meaning. I have experience treating clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, addiction, life transitions, grief and loss, self-esteem, stress management and building coping skills. I also have experience working in substance use treatment which has equipped me with skills in short-term solution-based therapy, skill building, and stress tolerance. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Alcohol and other Drug Counselor. I received a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology where I concentrated in the treatment of Substance Use Disorders.
