My clinical experience includes working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I have worked in various settings such as inpatient, residential centers, community mental health, and private practice. I graduated from Loyola University in 2009. It is important that clients have the freedom of self-expression and are not rushed through the therapeutic process. Working collaboratively, we will identify a framework that is validating and promotes growth. My approach is honest, empathetic, and relational in order to help clients gain self-awareness.

I believe that creating a safe and non-judgmental environment is essential in order for healing to take place. ​ By focusing on clients’ strengths and values, I help them learn healthy ways to overcome challenges and empower them to make positive changes in their lives.
