I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with New Insights Behavioral Health Services. I have fifteen years of specialized experience in providing therapy in English and Spanish to children, adolescents, and adults. I bring with me a wealth of expertise in multiple outpatient/inpatient settings including: community mental health centers, hospitals, schools, college counseling centers, residential treatment centers for adolescents, and EAP companies. My areas of focus include depression, anxiety/panic, self-esteem, dating/relationship issues, trauma, and multicultural issues. Our practice has two locations. Our Jefferson Park and Logan Square offices are both conveniently located close to the CTA Blue Line. Se habla español.

I utilize evidence-based therapies in my practice and believe that psychotherapy is a relational and collaborative process. As we work together, you can expect to uncover patterns in your thoughts and behaviors and gain greater control of areas that may seem uncontrollable through the use of effective coping skills.

I create a safe and non-judgmental environment where you will feel comfortable to explore personal struggles and deep-rooted issues at your own pace. As we work together on your journey of discovery, you will be intrigued about what you learn about yourself and gain a new perspective on your resiliency and perseverance.
