As a licensed clinical social worker and clinical trauma professional, I draw upon multiple psychoeducational and therapeutic techniques (e.g. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to meet clients' behavioral and mental health needs. My specialty is helping culturally and linguistically diverse clients cope with traumatic stress, grief, and loss. My practice is influenced by Adlerian theory and centers culturally responsive approaches to practice, because we know that culture is a major influence on one's perception of stress and self-efficacy.

Serving the central Illinois community for over a decade, my areas of expertise are trauma related to interpersonal or family violence, sexual assault and abuse, adoptive and foster care, school problems/workplace problems, parenting, and couples therapy. Spirituality, cultural knowledge, and self-awareness are significant to my delivery of services.

My other areas of focus are depression, anxiety, gender and sexuality, racial identity and self-esteem. My research expertise on girls' and women has been recognized by the Obama administration and recently the United State of Women (USOW).
