About

Chicago native, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with experience working with children and adults. I love helping children blossom into their own identities, empowering women through a variety of life changes and personal growth, and supporting men with self-love. As a current PhD Candidate in Organizational Leadership and Certificate in Women's Entrepreneurship, I'm able to explore the anxieties around leadership, workplace and entrepreneurial stress.
I utilize a variety of clinical modalities such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness. I'm an author of various children's books, such as Minesa's Mindful Day, The Feel of Color, and Mineko and Slade and the Mascot Blues.
Let's build on positive experiences and challenge those contradictory messages that "trip us up". Your quality of life is important, so let's take that journey together. I can't wait to work with you in growing from WITHIN towards becoming the AMAZING person you were destined to be!
