About Me

I obtained my master’s degree in clinical counseling psychology from Illinois State University, with my certificate in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. My undergraduate degree was completed at Loyola University Chicago in psychology and sociology. Previously, I have worked in both residential and outpatient settings to provide treatment for mental health and substance use populations.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in trauma-informed and strengths-based practices. Drawing from an integration of modalities including relational therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), I strive to provide a holistic and personalized therapeutic experience. I also value utilizing strategies that incorporate mindfulness, somatic-based, and art therapies to promote healing and self-discovery. I provide services to adolescents, adults, and couples with diverse backgrounds and needs. I have experience with varying areas, including but not limited to trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, anger, relationship difficulties, co-occurring substance use concerns, and life adjustments.

I aim to tailor interventions to meet the individual needs of each client. I view therapy as an engaging and collaborative journey, where clients actively participate in their own healing process. My goal is to create a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore and overcome their unique struggles, fostering personal growth and empowerment.
