My philosophy in working with clients is to build a trusting relationship with them by learning about their story - their family's story, their personal story, their triumphs and their challenges. I then work with the client to use their strengths to help them form a new story, a story where they change ingrained habits and live the life they have always dreamed of living. Cuando trabajo, mi filosofía es crear una relación con clientes y escuchar su propia historia. Mi objetivo es ayudarlos a realizar su sueno.

Accepting new clients! Healing happens in relationships, and working with a therapist who makes you feel seen, heard, and supported can be a powerful catalyst for change. I am not a cookie-cutter therapist who only offers quick fixes or overgeneralized solutions. Instead, I prioritize collaborating with you to build trust & safety so you can bring your full, authentic self to the therapy room. With compassion, curiosity, and humor, we can co-create a therapeutic relationship that honors your history, strengths, values, and beliefs to cultivate deep-rooted, lasting change.

I have focused my work on supporting queer and trans people and people of color. The clients who tend to be the best fit for my clinical approach tend to be people who are looking to be pushed, who want to build self-awareness, and want to change their relationship with their younger selves. They are asking the questions, "Who I am in this world?" or "How do I heal from the violence of the world?" or "How do I do things differently?" They want to build meaningful lives, practice gratitude and mindfulness, and alleviate suffering by offering themselves understanding and self-nurture.

I strive to create a relationship that feels authentic, safe, and trustworthy, and provide an open and non-judgmental space where you can feel free to be yourself.
Experiencing unexplained sources of anxiety, and not understanding out own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be really scary. Not being able to understand or effectively communicate with your child can be even scarier. If you are an overwhelmed parent of a child or adolescent who is experiencing difficulties such as anxiety, depression, anger, explosive emotion, isolation, self-harm, or identity confusion, or you yourself are struggling to understand your own thoughts, feelings, or sexual/gender identity, I may be the right fit for you.

I work with people who feel emotionally overwhelmed towards building a vibrant and grounded relationship with their feelings.
You want to feel emotions fully without shame. You want to be connected to your own sense of desire and purpose. You deserve a space to explore the parts of you that feel unknown, “unacceptable,” or taboo. My commitment in the therapeutic relationship is to welcome and value all aspects of your experience – the stories that reflect humor and resilience, and the parts that have been shamed or dismissed.

Are you going through the world trying to navigate systems that aren't made for you? Are you looking for validation and care, as well as tools and skills? The work that I do in the therapeutic space is well suited for clients looking for an affirming, non-judgmental space to process their experiences and make changes towards their best vision of themselves. More than modalities, I believe that it is the strength of the therapeutic relationship that can guide folks towards change and transformation. As a white queer person, I have worked to develop an intersectional lens, making sure to hold space for folks with varying identities.

I have 10+ years experience with adults of all ages and with many common struggles including anxiety, depression, complex family dynamics, relationship dynamics, difficult life transitions, and the effects of chronic illness.
I approach clinical work from a trauma-informed perspective and with the idea that the client is the expert on their own life. I am trans and queer-identified, and I am passionate about working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I understand the struggle to find a therapist who can understand one’s community both from professional and personal experience. I also know that both art and therapy can be intimidating and my goal is to provide a space where both feel accessible.

Working with a therapist offers answers to all those questions. Having a relationship with a therapist fosters an atmosphere of trust that will help you identify those obstacles that are preventing you from feeling better and moving your life forward.

I have a particular interest in working with other LGBTQ+ adults of all ages as we navigate the trials and joys of being queer in the US. I grew up in the southern US (from Appalachia to Florida’s panhandle) and these experiences molded me – as well as necessitating some breaking of the mold. I aim to hold space for clients who are examining their relationship to white supremacy culture, including but not limited to racism, ableism, and transmisogyny.

This cannot be done without a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship .
Starting your therapy journey can be anxiety provoking and intimidating. I commend you for taking this important step to show up for yourself. I believe that presenting symptoms are adaptive and protective forms of coping that you have learned over time. We are influenced and impacted by the many contexts in which we live, whether that be familial systems or systems of oppression. Uncovering root causes to symptoms and gently diving deeper into self awareness and understanding of your past and present experiences will be the cornerstone of our time together.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Illinois, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Illinois listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
