My Approach to Helping
I understand that taking the first step and reaching out for help and support is challenging, now more than ever. I believe that making your Mental Health a priority is the key to your overall wellness and happiness. It is very important to me to provide a judgment-free, supportive environment where you can focus on just that, your overall wellness and goals.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist actively licensed in both Illinois and California. I have extensive experience with a wide array of clientele. My specialty is providing therapy services to Adults and Teens with a wide range of mental health concerns including Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Thought Disorders, Personality Disorders, and Trauma. My clients typically reach out for help and support for issues related to Relationship stressors, Job Stress, Substance Use Issues, Anger Issues, GriefLoss Issues, Healing from Trauma, Adjustment Issues related to this “new normal” since the pandemic began, and Life Transitions. I am LGBTQIA+ friendly and provide services in a culturally sensitive way to individuals of all races, ethnicities, and belief systems.
I believe that there is no such thing as “one size fits all” treatment and I utilize a holistic, integrative approach to tailor your treatment needs to you. I incorporate CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, and Affirming Therapy techniques in a strength-based and solution-focused style to help you reach your goals and improve your overall wellness.
I know that it can be very hard to take the first step but it is worth it! When you’re ready please reach out because I’d love to help you on your journey."
