Unique. We as individuals are unique, especially in our physical and emotional needs, beliefs, identities, experiences, and thought processes.
With this in mind, I am committed to partnering with clients to deliver transparent and personalized care. We will work together, in a judgment-free space, to thoroughly address your needs through open communication, empathetic listening, and an evidence-based approach. Everyone deserves a space where they can be themselves and be truly heard and seen. It is my priority to provide and maintain this environment so that we can successfully address your needs and find how I can serve you best.
I am a licensed and nationally board-certified physician assistant (PA) with over three years of medical experience in both the hospital and clinic settings. I received my Bachelor of Science in Health Science at Bradley University before I attended Cleveland State University for PA school to obtain my Master’s degree. During my time in Cleveland, I was trained and mentored at Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals gaining valuable experience, especially with underserved, low socio-economic status communities. Upon graduating, I began my career with a large Chicagoland hospital system where I was fortunate to serve individuals from various walks of life. It was at this time that the connection between mental health and physical health became more apparent, ultimately peaking my interest. I have experience working with individuals experiencing suicidal ideations, mental health crises, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, stress/worry, mood disorders, and personality disorders.
I look forward to welcoming you to Clarity Clinic and serving you so that we can equip you with the tools to successfully overcome life’s hurdles.
