I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 9 years of experience working with adolescents and families in schools in the city of Chicago. I have extensive experience in addressing trauma, grief and loss, and family conflicts. I have worked with adolescents and adults struggling from a wide range of difficulties, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, and Anxiety Disorders. I have experience in helping clients develop improved social, communication, and coping skills, as well as anger management skills.
I mainly use a cognitive-behavioral approach, but I also draw inspiration and techniques from other treatment modalities, including dialectical behavioral therapy, humanistic, and psychodynamic approaches. I believe that without a strong rapport and mutual respect and positive regard, the therapeutic process is not successful. Because of this, I work hard to build strong relationships with my clients. I am warm, personable, and non-judgemental, and work hard to maintain positive relationships while fostering growth in the therapeutic relationship.
I believe that therapy can help anyone who is motivated for change. I love working with clients, and I am passionate about being a part of the therapeutic process. I look forward to working with you!
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Relationship, Intimacy-related, Eating, Sleeping, Parenting, Self esteem, Bipolar, Depression
