As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am committed to providing supportive and trauma-informed services while being mindful of different cultures and diverse identities, expressions, and practices. I support my clients in each therapy session by focusing on their needs and therapeutic goals. I assist clients in fulfilling their treatment goals by providing them with specific tools to create positive life changes.
I received her Bachelor's from Roosevelt University and a Masters's of Clinical Mental Health from National Louis University.
As a multicultural therapist, I enjoy working with women and people of color struggling with issues related to race/discrimination, family separation, other difficulties, and acculturation. I have extensive history working with pre-teens/adolescents, youth, adult women, and families. My experience working in community-based services has trained me extensively to support clients struggling with post-traumatic stress by assisting clients in repairing relationships and building healthy relational skills. I aim to help all of my clients utilize their resources and skills to overcome challenges. The goal in therapy is to educate and support clients throughout treatment to overcome life obstacles and challenges. I strive to teach clients long-term coping skills, build insight, motivate self-learning, and encourage independence.
I use diverse therapeutic approaches with a primary focus on cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and family systems. I use a strength-focused modality to treatment to ensure that we are consistently working together to help you meet your goals.
