About

My approach to therapy is informed by mindfulness practices, focused on assisting my clients in "opening up" to the present moment while connecting to their values to strive toward their "Best Self!" I focus on assisting clients in attending to their relational concerns, which allows for them to overcome the emotional distress associated with a history of difficult and painful relationships. I find that it is my duty to establish a safe space where clients feel truly understood. In doing so, I feel honored to be able to "BE" with my clients, as they strive toward growth and empowerment.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Illinois. I have worked in various university and hospital settings. I am passionate about working with clients who struggle with low self-worth and a lack of self-compassion. I also have an interest in working with adults struggling with significant life transitions as well as anxiety and depression.
I also specialize in working with clients from minoritized backgrounds and am passionate about social justice. If you were interested in working with me, please do not hesitate to reach out. Also, if I am unavailable to meet, I could potentially connect you with a colleague of mine that has shared specialty areas with more immediate availability.
