I view therapy as an opportunity to cultivate a collaborative relationship with clients while centering connection, exploration, validation, and growth. I invite my clients to use therapy as a space to slow down and practice curiosity towards themselves and their experiences.
I have worked with clients presenting with all types of concerns and therapeutic goals. I have particular expertise in working with individuals managing the imposter syndrome; BIPOC individuals and individuals from historically minoritized groups; individuals navigating interpersonal relationship challenges such as identifying relational patterns, addressing conflict, and learning how to communicate and set boundaries; individuals seeking to explore the impact of the sociopolitical climate on their mental health; and students with issues related to work/life balance, academic identity, and self-worth.
I am process-oriented and work from a relational-cultural perspective heavily considering how my client’s unique life experiences such as their family dynamics and upbringings, significant life events, communities, values, and cultural identities relate to their presenting concerns and needs in our work together.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow/therapist at Chicago Counseling Collective. Supervisor: Dr. Heather Frank, 071008765 Illinois
