Focus: Individual therapy related to depression, anxiety, relationships, and cultural identity.
Biography: I received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Roosevelt University and am currently practicing as a pending LPC. I have experience working in community mental health and outpatient settings, treating individuals presenting with issues related to trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, intersectionality, identity development, life transitions, grief, and mood disorders.
I value a warm, honest, and genuine approach in my work with individuals. I foster a therapeutic environment of comfort and safety so that we can work together as our full selves; conquering some of those small goals you may have, and some of those goals that you're just not sure how to put into words. I enjoy using trauma informed, solution focused interventions to assist individuals in identifying barriers for growth and better effectively cope with painful thoughts/emotions. I firmly believe that we can navigate through life's complexities together through self discovery and connection.
Because of my multiethnic background, I have a special interest in working with Asian clients, and clients that are hoping to gain clarity/support around their cultural identity.
