I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and board certified via The National Board of Certified Counselors. I earned my Master’s in Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization with a concentration in Children and Adolescent Treatment from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have had most of my experience working with individuals with severe mental illness such as depression and anxiety; however I have also worked with clients dealing with relationship issues, parenting problems, and self esteem issues . I have also provided clinical services to individuals and families referred by the Department of Children and Family Services. My clinical experience includes both inpatient and outpatient services.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe that building a safe and warm therapeutic environment is essential to any therapeutic relationship. My approach combines person centered, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and trauma-informed care. I will always tailor our dialog and your treatment plan to meet your specific needs and meeting you where you are. I value my role as a therapist and helping individuals who are in crisis. I am committed to reducing the stigma of mental illness in minority populations. I am glad that you have reached out for help and I look forward to working with you.
