For the past four years I have been in the Mental Health Field. I have obtained my Masters from Concordia University Chicago in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2018. I currently hold licensure as a Clinical Professional Counselor. My focus has been to empower clients to reach a higher level of self-sufficiency and healing.
The approach I take to do this is through a holistic (mind, body, soul) lens as people cannot function as their best self in fragmented pieces. Understanding that the world in which we live, how we function, and the resources available to us determines the perspective and navigation in which one has. I encourage one to deal with themselves now, because if they don’t then it delays the healing process and one will be faced to deal with things later.
I have worked with a diverse population of clients by factors such as age, socioeconomic status, and ethnic groups that have dealt with varying challenges such as anxiety, depression, parent/child conflicts, grief, mood & behavior disorders, PTSD, and ADD/ADHD. My passion for helping others and advocacy of mental health has led me to take on an open and eclectic approach to meet clients where they are. I walk alongside clients to assist them in meeting their therapeutic goals and recognizing the power and expertise one has over their own lives. My passion, willingness, and advocacy are defining factors of who I am as a counselor.
