I am a Licensed Clinical Partitioning Counselor with a master’s degree in Community Counseling from DePaul University, a program that holds a strong commitment to social justice, multiculturism, and innovation. Additionally, I am a Certified Domestic Violence Professional and have over seven years helping individuals explore healthy relationships, unhealthy relationships and the impact their interpersonal connections have on their lives. I have also completed the Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and often use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work with couples.
I focus on working with individuals and couples who are seeking to be more connected and to help them understand how past events have influenced their present reactions and relationships in the world. I use a strength based approach when working with clients; because of this, I seek to add tools and awareness that individuals can use to create long term sustainable change in their life.
I also have experience working with individuals who have been impacted by complex trauma. From serving veterans who were experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, to children and families who were overcoming sexual abuse. With every person I sought to help them find their own empowerment. To believe in their strength, abilities, and that they are the experts in the own life with the capability to reach their desired goals.
