Life can be challenging, and everyone has times when they feel overwhelmed and need some support. In my work, I provide a caring, nonjudgmental environment for adolescents, adults, and their families to speak openly about their lives and to explore their true selves. Therapy is meant to be collaborative, so picture me as a trusted guide walking beside you as you face what comes next. I specialize in working with young people, people with anxiety, and folks in the LGBTQ+ community.

Imagine you're carrying a backpack up a hill; it's heavy, the weight of the backpack pulling down unnaturally on your shoulders. You're uncomfortable, tired, and unable to enjoy the beautiful scenery around you. Can you imagine the relief of that backpack becoming lighter? Emptying unnecessary contents and keeping only the items that are most helpful for your journey. Whether you're a parent looking for guidance on supporting your child, a queer person looking for help in understanding your identity, or someone in need of handling your mental health, I want to be the person who helps empty and organize that proverbial backpack.

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.

My ideal client is ready for change. They are open to creative ideas and new ways of thinking about themselves and the world. They are equal collaborators and partners with me on their journey. They are willing to stay curious when we meet challenges on our journey together. They are also willing to laugh with me and find joy in the process of becoming. I often work with teachers, advocates, performance artists (above and below line), visual artists, and folks navigating identity issues. Religion, race, ability, and gender are often the foundations of my identity work. I provide custom workshops for groups as well.

I am a pre-licensed therapist working under supervision of Dr Anna Zettel. Together we will identify your strengths and build up the parts of yourself you see as weak. The parts of ourselves we see as weak and vulnerable are often our greatest strengths. I am passionate about working with adolescents and the LGBTQIA+ community. As a non-binary, queer identified person, I am committed to helping my clients navigate the stressors that uniquely effect gender and sexual minorities.

If you've found yourself here on this page, that tells me you are ready to do what it takes to survive. You are the expert on your life. I'm here to listen and bear witness to your story. Seeking help makes you brave, period. None of us can do this alone and we shouldn't have to. If you are queer, I've got you. If you are trans or gender non-conforming, I see you. If you are a Spanish-speaker, I would love to accompany you. I use a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach, which means we move at your speed. You are the one who decides what you need to feel safe. It's my job to respect that.

My goal is always to give my clients the opportunity to feel seen, heard and supported. I am non-judgmental, caring and somewhat goofy. I have worked in a variety of settings around grief/loss, identity development, trauma/abuse, anxiety, depression and disability concerns. I have training and experience in trauma-informed play therapy, and I love incorporating expressive arts into my practice. My approach is grounded in attachment-theory, narrative therapy, family-systems theory and anti-oppressive practice.

“Not all who wander are lost” is a quote I have loved while walking through my own life’s uncertainty. When you find yourself faced with an unclear path, talking with a therapist offers comfort, clarity, connection, and guidance. Counseling involves exploring yourself in a safe space that includes your perceptions and behaviors, and anything else relevant to the healing process. We can all thrive when provided the appropriate environment, so my primary goal is providing the type of safe space that works best for you.

Not being able to understand or effectively communicate with your child can be even scarier.

Our mental health is important. Oftentimes, we ignore our needs in pursuit of our goals. We get new jobs, start relationships, relocate, attend school, become care givers, or have children. Transitions are a part of lives and creating new routines are a necessity to managing these changes. Even if the changes are for the better creating new habits can be stressful.

I believe strongly in the power of personal change and that you can make change at any point in your life. Sometimes in your desire to change you can feel stuck or uncertain. These feelings are ones that many people experience. These feelings are also able to be overcome through therapy and therapeutic interventions. You do not need to let your emotions stop you from making change in your life.

In therapy, it feels essential to look at not only our own thoughts and emotions but also the expectations set by our environment. I utilize affirmative, trauma-informed, and relational lenses to encourage insight and explore assumptions impacting how we engage with the world around us. My clinical and research focuses relate to sexual identity, gender diversity and transition, and ethically non-monogamous relationships. Aside from these, I work often with anxiety, depression, communication, conflict management, boundaries, trauma, life transitions, discrimination, substance use, and premarital/marital counseling.

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.
