My Approach to Helping

I am a Fellow at IntraSpectrum Counseling, where my goal is to create space for clients to feel safe and reduce shame. I believe that healing is birthed from mutually empowering relationships, as well as connectedness to one’s identities and community. Heavily influenced by relational-cultural theory, I navigate the world through a feminist, sex-positive lens and aim to be anti-racist in my personal and professional life.

Prior to IntraSpectrum, I was an intern at Erie Neighborhood House where I provided trauma-focused counseling to individuals and families, predominantly young children in immigrant families. During my internship, I provided therapy for clients with a wide array of issues, such as coping with the threat of parent deportation, anger management, sexual exploration, anxiety, identity development, child abuse, PTSD, and domestic violence.

Originally from North Carolina, I received a Bachelor’s degree in music at Salem College. I recently graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, where I earned a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Latinx Mental Health. Outside of the work realm, I enjoy art, photography, the lake, friendship goofs, and hanging out with my two doggos.
