Are you experiencing difficulties in your interpersonal relationships? Perhaps you are feeling depressed, lonely, anxious, or you are simply seeking a safe space to speak freely about your lived experience without fear of judgment? My goal is to meet you exactly where you are, emphasize your personal strengths, and create a supportive, warm space that is built on trust and unconditional positive regard.
The decision to seek therapy can feel frightening and takes a great deal of courage, but the desire to put yourself first and develop more self-awareness is a tremendous first step that must be applauded.
I believe that all human beings want to experience a sense of belonging, safety, and trust, and I welcome each part of your being in session. I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you on your journey toward self-awareness, empowerment, and healing.
I enjoy working with individuals, families, and adults. As an integrative therapist, I draw from a variety of models such as Internal Family Systems (IFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, mindfulness interventions, and attachment theory to tailor my approach to your specific needs. I received my Master’s in Social Work and Master’s in Women’s Studies and Gender Studies from Loyola University Chicago. I have experience providing individual psychotherapy to college students in a university wellness center and have also worked in non-profit settings. Prior to that, I offered ABA services to children on the Autism Spectrum and worked with women who had experienced intimate partner violence.
I offer therapy services in English and Spanish.
