When your feelings and emotions affect your ability to live peacefully and enjoy life, I can help. Life is difficult and complicated; sometimes it is hard to make sense of it all. Sadness, anxiety, worry, difficulty with relationships, loss and many other of life's experiences often have us overwhelmed. I offer my clients an opportunity to share what they are going through. We explore the confusing, often overwhelming, emotions and learn coping techniques. I offer emotional support and work with you on replacing negative thoughts with more positive, productive ones.

So many of us are walking around with unhealed wounds. Healing is a process that takes time, support, encouragement, courage, and validation. Therapy can be an integral part of the healing process for many. I utilize therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory, and Attachment Theory to help clients navigate the healing process. We dive deeply into unconscious processes and work on bringing them into consciousness. We work on quieting the inner critic and living in true authenticity through vulnerability and courage.

Promoting diversity, acceptance and equality in my community and throughout my daily work, I serve as a primary support for humans of all ethnicities, genders, and sexual preferences of Illinois.
My clinical focus targets individuals who struggle with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, trauma, impulsivity, co-dependency, and poor boundaries with others and self. I nurture connection and trust while giving my clients emotional freedom to explore the barriers that block them from their true potential. Those barriers may involve: COVID-19, relationships, work, losing weight, school, family, friends, grief, trauma, learning to say no. Therapy can be scary to think about, so I consider my greatest strength as a clinician is meeting my clients where they are emotionally.

Do you feel overwhelmed with some of your life circumstances? Have you experienced trauma: a divorce, job-loss, traumatic birth, difficult diagnosis, or domestic violence? Are you depressed, struggling with low self-esteem, lacking motivation, or needing help transitioning through life? I believe that every individual has what it takes to succeed and live a fulfilling life. Sometimes, we have to go through the darkest storms to see the brightest rainbows. Without the right tools and a safe non- judgmental space, it may feel impossible to weather the storm on your own.
