Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, State of Illinois # 180011103
I believe the therapeutic process guides individuals to develop greater self-esteem and self-compassion, improve communication skills, increase empathy and gain a sense of hope.
My dedication is in supporting individuals to address depression, anxiety, identity, life transitions, trauma, and relationship issues. I incorporate a combination of theoretical approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy, talk therapy, art therapy, mindfulness and motivational interviewing. I believe we can collaboratively create a reflective, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship whereby clients can develop skills, effective communication, and increased self-awareness.
I have over 7 years of experience in community mental health, privation and vocational rehabilitation settings, working with individuals from a variety of cultural and spiritual backgrounds. I have also completed 40 hours of training in Sexual Assault and Violence Crisis Intervention, trauma training, and medical and legal advocacy.
I strive to meet clients where they are, collaborate, listen, and support clients in understanding the challenges they face and making changes that improve their quality of life.
