I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have experience working with children, college students, and adults providing clinical counseling in a variety of settings. My experience includes residential treatment centers, private practice, and community mental health settings. My approach is person centered considering both an individual's unique circumstances and community or environmental factors that impact wellbeing. I have a Master’s in Social Work with a specialization in Community Mental Health from the University of Illinois at Urbana and a Clinical License in the State of Illinois.
As a therapist it is my goal to provide a safe, comfortable, and relaxed space for clients to express themselves. I am passionate about employing therapeutic approaches to develop coping skills, self awareness, effective communication strategies, and emotional agility. I enjoy utilizing a variety of therapeutic tools with a foundation of cultural competency. My main therapeutic modality is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solutions Focused Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, mindfulness and grounding techniques.
