Born and raised in Illinois, my background includes receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Illinois and a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology (Counseling Practice). I currently reside in Louisiana and provide mental health services to individuals that live in Illinois and Louisiana.
My clinical experience includes 7 years of working in different mental health settings such as correctional institutions, inpatient psychiatric facilities, and community health centers working with diverse populations such as children and families, domestic violence survivors, Veterans, substance abuse, delinquent youth, convicted offenders, pretrial detainees, and more. My specialties include trauma recovery, stress management, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, and life transitions.
As a dual-licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC), my clinical perspective allows me to view you as the expert of your challenges and life obstacles. Viewing you as the expert in your life and being able to relate, support, and advocate with you creates a safe therapeutic alliance allowing growth and promoting success.
Let's embark on this journey together as we empower you in making powerful changes in your life.
