Therapy is for everyone, whether they’re facing some sort of challenge or seeking personal growth. I believe change happens through insight, by understanding how our past experiences and our context shape our present and future. As a therapist, I am warm, relaxed, and understanding. Together, my clients and I build a relationship that is unique and authentic. My office is a space that is safe and non-judgmental, where clients can explore whatever is on their mind in that moment. Though talking in therapy is helpful, it’s sometimes easier to communicate nonverbally, which is why I also use techniques like art, play, and writing in my practice.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults from a variety of cultural backgrounds. The clinical issues I enjoy working with include trauma, depression, anxiety, or general life stressors. I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling from The Family Institute at Northwestern University in 2015. Since then, I have gained experience in community mental health and have received training on complex trauma at Womencare Counseling.
