Biography: As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I believe that healing is possible amid chaos and uncertainty. With an empathic and non-judgmental approach, I desire to guide my clients into a greater knowing and deeper trust in themselves, move closer to what they intrinsically value, and feel more liberated in their bodies. Through therapeutic work, I have watched clients restore their hope through living within the “both/and” find empowerment through the gentle balancing of acceptance and change.
I have had the pleasure of working with diverse populations in various settings. I strive to cultivate a warm, inviting space that fosters openness and flexibility. As connection and trust build in the therapy space, I integrate different techniques catered to each client’s needs. I utilize interventions from multiple modalities such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure response prevention (ERP), intuitive eating, and mindfulness-based techniques.
I completed a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Loyola University and now hold a Clinical Professional Counselor license in Illinois. I have also earned an advanced certificate as an Eating Disorder Specialist through the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp™). If you feel I may be a good fit for your needs or would like to learn more, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to connecting with you.
