About My Clients

I work with children, teens, young adults, and parents. I help clients who experience stress and anxiety, life transitions, mood disorders, problems at school, behavior issues, and difficulty regulating their emotions and developing connections with others.

My Background and Approach

I graduated from University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Psychology in May 2000. I then earned my Master of Social Worker from Loyola University in Chicago in 2002. I was a School Social Worker for 15 years before starting in private practice. I have worked at Urban Wellness since 2017 and am a Site Supervisor at our Sauganash Location. I participate in a White Accountability Therapist Consultation Group to promote my growth and development as an anti-racist practitioner.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone has the capacity for change, growth and development. I am committed to social justice, continuing my work as an anti-racist clinician and identifying common ways white superiority often shows up in my identity as a white therapist. Some of my favorite things include spending quality time with my family and friends. I enjoy walking along the lakefront, exploring different neighborhoods around Chicago, and attending concerts. At home, I like watching back-to-back episodes of the newest series I’m obsessed with or reading books for pleasure and personal/professional growth. I also love planning trips to different states and countries. When traveling I love experiencing and learning about different cultures, traditions, and trying different foods. My creative outlets include participating in art classes and doing makeup!
