I received my Master of Social Work from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I practice in partnership with my clients to achieve deeper insight, connect to core values, and prevail through hardship meaningfully. Each situation is unique and a deep understanding of clients and their experience of the world is critical. My orientation is humanistic, relational, and systems-based, and I am committed to providing holistic, innovative, and compassionate care.
In tailoring my approach to the specific life circumstances of each individual I work with, I draw from many varied treatment modalities. These include client-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed, harm-reduction, psychodynamic, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, integrative/alternative, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and ACT therapies.
I help emerging adults and adults manage life transitions, career stress, anxiety, depression, attachment, family-of-origin struggles, and those simply feeling overwhelmed who need a safe space to talk. I also provide couples therapy, helping people strengthen their relationships by deepening empathetic awareness of themselves and each other and building pathways for more effective communication.
“When life feels overwhelming, it’s so important to remember that not only can we survive our struggles, but we can learn and grow in ways we may never have imagined!”
