My Approach to Helping

Searching for a therapist and starting therapy can feel overwhelming. Whether you are experiencing stress related to work, life transitions, or relationships, the therapeutic process is here to provide an outlet and for you to process your emotions and find relief. You\\\'re on the right path. As you start this journey, just know that your story matters, your emotions matter, and you deserve a space to reflect on what you are going through.

I am an art therapist and a licensed clinical professional counselor practicing in the Chicago loop. I believe that a strong and healthy therapeutic relationship is built on honesty, understanding, and trust. My role as a therapist is to provide support for overcoming adversity, strengthening relationships, and increasing self-awareness.

I provide a comfortable, confidential environment where we can work together, explore your concerns, and reach your treatment goals. My therapeutic approach is relational, collaborative, and integrative. I employ effective, evidence-based techniques, including dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, solution-focused, strength-based, and psychodynamic therapy. I have experience working in a variety of capacities, ranging from community mental health, outpatient and inpatient treatment settings, group practice, and on-call crisis treatment. My clinical interests and specialties are in mood disorders, trauma recovery, griefloss, relationship difficulties, life transitions, substance abuse, anxiety and depression, as well as faith-based services.

Among the therapeutic interventions listed, I also provide art therapy for adolescents and adults. There is no particular skill or knowledge required in order to participate in art therapy. This is an option for clients who want to explore other avenues of expression and self-discovery. Our minds can sometimes block what we are feeling as a way of trying to protect or avoid feeling paindiscomfort. This can make it difficult to articulate what we\\\'re feeling. Art therapy provides a platform for individuals to process their emotions through visual expression, and possibly reveal feelings that have been suppressed.
