About me

Congratulations! You've now taken one of many steps toward improving your mental and emotional health! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois, with a personal mission to support the mental and emotional wellness of the clients I serve. I provide genuine support, unconditional validation, as well as authentic empathy. With this, I seek to create a balance by using productive challenges to achieve personal progress toward client-centered goals. I have 4 years of experience of working with people who've experienced complex trauma, abandonment/attachment issues, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and interpersonal (domestic) violence. I use various evidenced based modalities to create an individualized plan for each of my clients. I believe that every individual deserves the right to thrive, rather than to simply survive!

I look forward to working with you!

Ebony has great experience in all age ranges. She is easy to talk to and listens. She can restate what you are saying to clarify and help you communicate. I highly recommend Ebony.

I truly feel like she understands what I’m trying to get out of this process. It is extremely easy to have a relationship with her and I feel so comfortable talking to her. I was nervous about this process, but she makes me feel much more at ease.
