My Approach to Helping
It is often difficult to ask for support in the face of life’s challenges, and I appreciate you taking this step!
I work with young adults and adults seeking support related to depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, trauma, family conflicts, life transitions, identity and self-esteem concerns, experiences with discrimination and oppression, acculturation, and career concerns, among others. My goal is to create a comfortable and safe space where we work collaboratively to help you face those challenges and make the changes you desire to live a more fulfilling life. We all have vulnerabilities, and strengths we often don’t realize. I, therefore, work with my clients to build on their strengths and resilience and develop self-compassion.
I recognize the impact of culture on our identities and experiences and I have enjoyed working with clients from diverse backgrounds at outpatient, community mental health, and university counseling settings. These included the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University, DePaul University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I welcome clients from all walks of life and feel humbled by their willingness to invite me to be a part of their journey.
