More Info About My Practice

As a clinician at Urban Wellness, we accept most all-major insurances such as BCBS, Cigna, UHC, Aetna, Humana, and many others. Feel free to call directly prior to scheduling to gain more information on insurance coverage. Urban Wellness also works with client's to ensure that services are financially feasible as it is important that client's are able to work towards treatment goals with out focusing on the finances of therapy services.

In addition to in office therapy services, I am also willing and able to provide in home therapy services to children and adolescents as well as to provide family therapy services in order to better address the family dynamics and assess the home environment. In-home therapy services also increase the comfort level for children and allows the clinician to observe the behavior of the child or children and parents in their natural environment.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to working at Urban Wellness with children, families, couples, and individuals, I had been employed as a crisis clinician in the Chicago land area, which has allowed me to gain experience with assessing and providing therapy services to children and adolescents who have struggles with suicidal thoughts as well as thoughts of self harm. Through my work as a crisis clinician, I have also gained insight into how the behavior and mood of the child can affect parents and the entire family. Prior to working with children and families, I also gained specialized training in working with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, as well as children and families who have been affected by domestic violence and trauma.
