My Approach to Helping

I know change can feel uncomfortable. That’s why I create a safe, private space for my clients. I view therapy as a process of collaboration built on a client’s goals and strengths. I bring my training and knowledge, and the client brings their life experience. You are the only expert on your life. I hope to help you recognize unhealthy patterns, develop healthy coping tools, and lead a balanced and fulfilling life.

My work as a counselor utilizes a client-centered, integrative approach. I incorporate cognitive behavioral skills and exercises into our sessions. I admire the courage it takes to seek help, and I do not judge my clients. Therapy offers a rewarding journey. It’s my privilege to witness this journey of growth.

More Info About My Practice

I graduated from Santa Clara University in California with a bachelor's degree. I then completed a master’s degree at Adler University in Chicago.

In my work as a licensed professional counselor, I’ve worked with diverse populations in many settings, including inpatient facilities, nonprofit mental health organizations, and the Cook County Jail. I have helped adults and teens from many cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I now help clients who seek counseling at Portrait Health Centers.
