I work with adult clients (Individual, veterans , couples and families). My focus is to help guide my clients, not to lead. I do this by helping clients recreate the narrative, find the hope, and rebuild themselves through multiple therapeutic techniques. Starting therapy is the first and hardest step, but once you start, then the journey begins. My therapy is also 100% virtual, so clients do not have to move around their schedule or wait in a waiting room. I offer solution focused therapy, which can be discussed in session. If you are in Illinois looking for a therapist check out my website today for fastest service.

I have worked with children using play therapy, students of every age, immigrant families and military families.
I believe that all people have dignity, worth, and the right to live life in a way that brings them joy. Our ability to live joyfully can be limited due to imbalances of power in our world (racism, sexism, homophobia). Because of this we often suffer, and suffering left unaddressed can lead to limiting beliefs and behaviors. These behaviors are usually adopted as a matter of necessity to survive, yet they can keep us from being the most authentic and happy version of ourselves. The therapeutic relationship can heal and transform our lives through affirmation, validation and sustained attention on our thoughts, beliefs and behaviors.

I work with individuals from diverse ethnicities, first generation individuals, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, veterans and students.
Sometimes the way you relate to yourself and others no longer aligns with who you truly are, your values or how you envisioned your life. You may feel disconnected from yourself and others. You may feel anxious or misunderstood, and start to question your worth or love. To cope, you wear a mask to hide parts of yourself, which creates feelings of tension within yourself and with others. What if you lived your life according to your values while accepting and expressing your genuine self? I create a judgement free, safe therapeutic space where you can explore, understand and find your authentic self.

Many people seek therapy upon realizing that familiar ways of thinking, feeling, behaving, and relating to others have become unhelpful or even stifling. Maybe it’s difficult to sustain meaningful relationships, to confront anxiety-provoking situations, or to cultivate a positive, valued sense of yourself. Maybe you neglect yourself, play out self-defeating patterns, or invalidate your own feelings. There are innumerable ways that emotional pain shows up in our lives. However, it can be difficult to identify, confront, and work through this on your own, or to make changes that allow you to thrive. ​

I have a special interest is supporting veterans , young adults, adults living with grief, meaningless marriages, serious illness, frustrating jobs and exhausting children.
Life stressors related to relationships, school, work and racism often cause feelings of confusion, depression and anxiety. Our emotions can be so troubling that it's difficult to think clearly and make responsible, wise decisions. When clients talk with me, I am non-judgmental, supportive and caring. This relationship of trust helps my clients release their disturbing emotions so they can once again problem-solve and decide how to move on with their lives. NOTE: I am licensed to treat IL clients. I am available using online therapy which is covered by insurance.
