my approach:

I always start with meeting you where you are. I like to find out what is important to you, your previous experiences, and what you're looking for in a therapist, so that we can create a game plan. I lean heavily on relational and systems approaches to inform my approach to a client. The same modalities and approaches do not work the same for everyone and it is my job to explore what works best for you and how we make that possible in the therapy space.

thoughts for new clients:

No one knows you better than yourself. Including me. Let me know if I have misinterpreted and don't let me create goals for you. This is your space and you are the expert. I am here to support you along the way.

ABOUT ME:

Vulnerability and emotions can be scary and unfamiliar. I consider it one of the greatest honors to navigate these with a client and help make more sense of them.

Through a systems and trauma-informed lens, I work with clients to help them identify and explore their feelings and situations of uncertainty in order to feel more empowered in who they are. I believe the client is the expert in their treatment, and should be treated as such. I offer a collaborative, non-judgmental, empathic, and self-empowering approach to treatment. No one client is the same, and I believe their treatment approach should reflect this and be individualized to their needs.

To meet my clients where they are, I find it necessary to practice cultural humility and honor the client’s personal values, while offering resources on self-regulation, community empowerment, healthy relationships, and social justice. My goal is to help you discover the tools for healing and growth that already lie within you. I align closely with therapeutic styles, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Interfamily Systems (IFS), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I rely on person-centered, trauma-informed, and systems frameworks to inform my work.

In my time as a clinician, I have worked with adults from a wide range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. More specifically, I have experience working with LGBTQIA++ populations, eating disorders, sex positivity, substance use, religious trauma, depression, anxiety, single event and complex trauma, family dysfunction, grief/bereavement, relationship problems, and Borderline Personality Disorder. I earned my Master of Social Work from the Jane Addams College of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
