I specialize in working with children and adults who have faced systemic harm and societal stigma, including LGBTQ and TGNC individuals, women, and those from other marginalized communities. I have extensive experience working with young people who have endured complex trauma, and I believe in the power of a strengths-based relational therapy model. I am committed to celebrating diversity and I hold an affirming stance on all genders, sexualities, careers, reproductive choices, and alternative relationship structures.
I find it valuable to incorporate art, play, music, and other creative techniques in sessions to cultivate an engaging and personalized therapeutic environment. I am an EMDR-trained clinician & I believe in the power of somatic and movement-based healing. I hold Master's degrees in both Social Work and Gender and Women Studies from Loyola University Chicago.
I believe that the relationship between a therapist and their clients should be built on a foundation of mutual respect and compatibility. I am also a Pisces and an optimist. I look forward to hearing from you and building a therapeutic relationship that feels customized, comfortable, and emotionally fulfilling.

Therapy sessions should be personal and based on your needs and interests. I enjoy incorporating art, play, music, and other creative techniques in sessions with clients and I am an EMDR trained clinician. I believe in the power of somatic and movement-based healing. Ultimately, collaboration with each individual builds the foundation for the therapeutic modality we utilize in our work together.
