About

I believe that the purpose of therapy is creating an effective, working relationship where we are constantly striving towards being the very best version of ourselves. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and need assistance. I am here to support you on your newfound journey. I found my passion for therapy as an undergraduate student at a predominantly White, small-town college in Iowa. While learning about depression and PTSD in a psychology course, I realized there were so many people of color that I knew back in Chicago who struggled with these issues and were not receiving treatment because of issues related to systematic oppression.
From then on, it has been my mission to provide therapy services to people who look like me (and other marginalized groups), and change the stigma of ‘what therapy is, who therapy is for, and what a therapist should look/talk like’. My approach to therapy is culturally competent and person-centered, where the client is the leader of their therapy experience.
Everyone has the right to live a full and meaningful life, but we all encounter tough times; I am here so that you don’t have to work through yours alone. I look forward to becoming a part of your journey and welcome the opportunity to walk alongside you as you carve out the life that you desire to live.
