I am a person-centered clinician with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in outpatient settings. I earned a Master’s of Social Work at the University of Chicago. While studying, I focused specifically on trauma-informed, psychodynamic approaches. I worked in a Rape Crisis Center during graduate school and became certified in Rape Crisis Counseling. Since graduating, I have worked with a wide variety of clients in individual therapy and also have worked in the non-profit setting.
I use acceptance and commitment, psychodynamic, and solution-focused philosophies to empower my clients to move towards a life with value and joy. I utilize my knowledge of how trauma impacts the brain to help clients understand their current coping strategies. I enjoy educating clients about trauma and how to holistically heal.
Clients struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma can find a collaborator and advocate in working with me. Individuals who are striving to find meaning in their life will get support by identifying personal values and actionable goals. Clients will also learn resilience, mindfulness, and willingness to be present with the full scope of the human emotional experience.
