I have felt passionate about mental health for as long as I can remember, but I was first exposed to the field of psychology while studying at Loyola University Chicago. Volunteering as a peer health advisor for their wellness center sparked my desire to continue down the mental health path. I received my bachelor’s in cognitive and behavioral neuroscience at Loyola and my master’s in forensic psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have previous experience at a behavioral health hospital with children/adolescents and adults doing individual and group work.
I accept my clients’ complexity and offer a validating and nonjudgmental space to encourage insight into belief systems and values—exploring the self. Because of my experience working with a wide range of people, I approach each relationship with a client as a unique experience. My eclectic approach draws from trauma-focused, relational, and client-centered approaches. I promote a collaborative and supportive relationship with each client by tailoring my approach to provide them with skills that best support their healing journey.
Outside of my role as a therapist, I explore new cuisines, travel, enjoy art and music, and love reptiles. Obtaining knowledge and experiencing what is outside of myself drives me to continue learning. I expand my worldview by connecting with those around me and developing my understanding of myself.
I look forward to supporting you in your journey toward self-growth!
