Life can be difficult and at times, people need an extra source of support. Often, we are intimidated and overwhelmed by emotions, perceptions, and life circumstances. Yet, as we learn to be present in our emotions, explore our perceptions, and address life circumstances, a transformative process occurs allowing us to grow, restore hope, and embrace a more meaningful life. Supporting others in this transformative process is a passion of mine.
I provide an easy-going, genuine, and empathetic approach to treatment to help clients feel comfortable and safe to address their struggles. I strive to empower and support clients to be the best versions of themselves.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and received a Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. My extensive clinical experience has been in a variety of settings including community mental health, partial hospitalization programs, inpatient, and residential. In therapy, I use a client-centered, collaborative, and holistic approach incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). My interests include working with adolescents, families, and adults with mood disorders, life transitions, eating disorders, self-injury, and trauma.
