With my love for connection, paired with compassion for the human experience, it doesn’t cease to amaze me what the power of empathy and hope can do for healing and transformation. Prior to my career as a counselor, I worked in the field of early childhood throughout the Chicagoland area; working with youth on the south and east sides of Chicago. I was also part of the Child Life Specialist team located at Comer Children’s Hospital where constant and genuine support for both patients and their families were essential.
While working with younger children is my first love, I also enjoy working with pre-teens, teens, young adults, and older adults. I find that working through a person-centered and strength-based lens supports the client in their understanding of being the sole expert and creator of their life, thereby providing the client this freedom to be themselves unapologetically.
I believe in traditional talk therapy and an authentic relationship with my clients, but I also integrate breathwork, EMDR, DBT, and other mindfulness practices that lift up the idea that we are connected in both mind and body. Through support, insight, and understanding, we can enhance the strengths that you’ve ’always possessed within you.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a graduate of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
