I am passionate about empowering clients to connect with their authentic selves and strengths in order to heal, grow, and make meaningful life changes. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and I aim to provide a calm, supportive, and nonjudgmental space where clients feel safe to explore and process openly. I utilize an integrative approach to help clients identify their individual goals and build insight, skills, and confidence to reach them.
I have professional experience both in and outside of the mental health field in private practice, medical, corporate, and non-profit settings that has informed my work with clients. I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler University in Chicago. Prior to my career as a therapist, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in art, and I enjoy incorporating mindfulness and art within sessions in order to encourage self-exploration and creativity.
Additionally, I have experience working with the sexual violence survivor community, which led me to pursue my 40HR Sexual Assault Counseling training certificate through the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault, which I completed in 2020.
I currently work with teens, young adults, and adults. I have experience working with concerns such as anxiety/stress, sexual abuse, grief, trauma, depression, and life transitions.
