Welcome! I’m so excited that you are taking this time for yourself. With so much happening in the world around us, life can almost feel like a whirlpool sucking us into the dark. Talking with someone is a way for us to prioritize our own self-care. Although life may feel really isolating right now, I am here to walk with you on your journey to well-being.
I specialize in working with people who have experienced trauma and who need extra support during times of change and adjustment. When we meet, I want you to feel safe and accepted while being vulnerable with me. I also have extensive experience working with people from diverse backgrounds, ranging from people who are currently unhoused to recent immigrants and refugees to the United States. I also enjoy working with children, adolescents, and their families who are experiencing emotional and behavioral symptoms. Every person has their own story and I strive to use a collaborative and holistic model. I am also trained in Level I and II Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I earned my undergraduate degree in Human Services at Loyola University Chicago and my Master’s in Clinical Social Work at the University of Chicago. I grew up in the Twin Cities and am so excited to be back home. I am currently undergoing supervision while working towards independent clinical licensure.
