*********** Saturday Appointments Only************************* Chicago native, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with experience working with adults, children and families. I love empowering women dealing with a variety of issues from changes in the life stages to improving one's own personal growth.

I utilize a variety of clinical modalities, but highly value Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness. I'm an author of various children's books, such as Minesa's Mindful Day and The Feel of Color. **Disclaimer:New clients seeking services only for short-term disability request/ paperwork will be denied. You MUST do the clinical work of healing!

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!
