Do you ever feel like the support of your family and friends is not enough? You don't have to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder to benefit from therapy. Many people turn to therapy for help with everyday life issues: relationship problems, anxiety, and self-doubt. Others seek therapy during difficult times such as sexual abuse and grief. In order to reap the benefits of therapy it's important that you choose the right therapist- someone you can trust, who makes you feel valued with the experience to help you overcome emotional challenges and make changes for the better in your life.

There is something keeping you from having the happy, fulfilling life you crave. Anxiety about your career is causing performance issues at work. Is it keeping you from enjoying life outside of work? Maybe stress is keeping you from sleeping. Your anxiety is relentless and exhausting. Perhaps a past sexual assault or other trauma is making it difficult to have the healthy relationship you crave. It is making it hard to trust yourself and others. Or maybe you just can't get over that break-up. You're in a demanding career or caregiver role that has you burned out. You can't get away from low self-esteem and self-doubt.

I've had success helping clients who are struggling with a variety of issues, including trauma, sexual assault , low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, parent-child relationship and family system issues, depression, anxiety, and adult ADD/ADHD.
I am the owner and psychotherapist at Essential Therapy Chicago. I've had years of experience helping clients grow and find emotional healing in private practice settings. In my work, I aim to create an open, welcoming therapy environment where clients feel empowered to make positive changes in their personal lives and relationships. I work with clients to identify their strengths and to set goals of therapy that are exciting and motivating. I base my practice on an integrative approach which allows me to not only provide short-term symptom relief and mood stabilization, but also to foster longer-term growth and self-explorations.

By focusing on personal strengths rather than shortcomings, I help clients recognize healthy coping skills to overcome obstacles, develop solutions and achieve their goals.

I have expertise in sexual assault /harrassment survivorship and advocacy, Intimate Partner Violence, HIV/AIDS, multi-cultural/generational issues and AAPI discrimination.
How do we reconnect with ourselves? How do we connect in community and solidarity with each other? The surfacing of racial and social divisions have triggered a sense of isolation and alienation, especially in the BIPOC, AAPI and LGBTQ+ & TGNC communities. My experience as a social worker serving communities who experience intergenerational trauma and social oppression inform my holistic approach of looking at my clients' entire lived experiences. I am a social justice-oriented, multi-racial and multi-lingual therapist, focused on empowerment and healing for people in the community.

I identify as a queer person of color and hope to best serve those communities who feel underrepresented in professional fields. Common areas that I work with are trauma, gender identity and expression, gender issues, career related difficulties, and mood/anxiety disorders. I work heavily with the linguistic ways we approach "problems" and through a narrative approach we would work on creating the future you want to see.

I understand the healing process as one of self-determination through therapeutic empathy. Being curious while employing sensitive honesty makes me a good fit for people who are open to exploring deeper personal and interpersonal connections. The lens of attachment, psychodynamic theory, and existential thought within ecological and systemic perspectives help me appreciate the pressures that impact quality of life issues. I am interested in working with individuals, couples, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds who find themselves struggling in relationships, depression, anxiety, complex trauma, psychosis, and grief/loss.
