I use a holistic approach using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help in areas of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, life transitions, suicidal ideations, trauma and PTSD, and stress management.
Seeking help can be scary and overwhelming, but you are not alone! I am here to offer a safe, nonjudgmental, and comfortable place that you can feel heard and validated. I believe that building strong foundations and relationships with people are imperative to the growth and healing of an individual’s mind and soul. I bring energy, compassion, and even a little humor to my work with clients, to create a collaborative environment that you can be comfortable and yourself in.

Trying to heal and work through trauma can be overwhelming and difficult to begin. Going through major life transitions can cause unwanted stress. Asking for help can be hard, but taking that step shows strength and resilience. My goal is to help you feel empowered, validated, and supported along your healing journey.

Our lives our deeply interconnected. There are moments when structures and roots of inequity serve as a barrier to access to reach one's full potential, purpose, and connection with self and others. As a human, you hold value and power and are keenly aware of the acute and chronic challenges you may face. Perhaps its impact on the ability to properly attach, heal, and thrive individually and in community with others has touched your life. You may be looking for someone to help provide space and tools for you to reclaim your own identity, narrative, and power.

Feeling stuck in a web of stress, frustration, anxiety, hurt, depression, and loneliness can be difficult and unsettling. Like a gas gauge, it is important to identify what empties us and what fuels us. With understanding, knowledge, and humor, I assist my clients in identifying what empties them, such as stresses, worries, roadblocks, and other means of "stuck-ness." We also explore what fuels us and fills us, such as change, self-care, acceptance, balance, empowerment, and new beginnings.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

My ideal client focus are black and brown children/adolescents, gender diverse clients, and women with multicultural identities. Immigrating and adapting as a young girl has influenced my professional journey and given me a refreshing perspective on life, grief, and spirituality that I want to share with my clients. In recent years, I've had the honor of working with children/teens managing a range of disability such as ADHD, ASD, and Down Syndrome as a Registered Behavioral Therapist. I continue to learn from my clients every session about love, life, and communication.

What type of Downers Grove mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Downers Grove?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
