About Me

Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Board Certified Art Therapist in Chicago, Illinois with over eight years of experience as a therapist. I have worked many individuals over a wide range of obstacles including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, low motivation, and trauma.

Working primarily in community mental health, I believe that we must look at the whole person in order to be able to provide the best care possible. Emotional wellness is for everyone, and labels do not define our personal experience.

I am a warm, compassionate, and understanding person and I believe that the client is the one that knows themselves the best. I come from a Person-Centered and Cognitive Behavioral background. Meaning, I prefer to understand the client and their own words on what brings them here to receive help. Having studied Art Therapy, I enjoy incorporating creative problem-solving as well as creating tangible solutions for tangible growth.

It takes a lot of bravery to be able to speak up for ourselves and reach out for help. I’m looking forward to working together to help you feel more in control again.

I am working with Claire on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to change behaviors and mind set. She has supplied me with many tools to use when having negative or self-deprecating thoughts. Claire responds quickly and always follows up after a video session.
