My Approach to Helping

I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families struggling with attention issues, learning disabilities, substance use, self-esteem, expressing emotions, trauma, coping skills, and more. I believe that effective therapy is a soulful-healing process that takes time, patience, loyalty, self-love, and the openness to communicate. I feel that it is important to help empower patients by allowing them to express themselves in a way that makes them feel comfortable and safe. I work collaboratively with clients, encourage them to be themselves, and motivate them to help ensure their personal goals are met and that treatment has been successful.

I have received my Master's Degree from Marquette University in Clinical Mental Health with a specialization working with children and adolescents. During my time at Marquette, I was the Diversity Leader for my class and felt strongly about diversity and inclusion in the world of mental health involving people of color and the stigma behind those factors.

More Info About My Practice

I have experience with DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), Narrative Therapy, Strength Based Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, and more. Although I have used different approaches, I do not believe in one therapy working for one individual or a specific diagnosis. I strongly believe that therapy is art and there is beauty in all therapeutic approaches that all can be useful and beneficial depending on the individual.

I am proud to work with a range of ages as well as a variety of reasons for treatment. I feel that therapy can be very cathartic and therapeutic for individuals and enjoy being a part of their journey.
