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.
