Licensed Professional Counselor in Oak Park, IL

About My Clients

I specialize in counseling adolescents, adults, and older adults from immigrant families, addressing a wide range of mental health issues and familial conflicts. My practice offers a safe environment for individuals, couples, and families to explore their emotions and develop coping skills. I provide personalized interventions and compassionate care, specializing in anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders.

My Background and Approach

With extensive experience as a mental health therapist and former director of Behavioral Health and Family Wellness Programs, I am well-equipped to offer holistic support, addressing clients' physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I've managed various programs, from mental health and substance use prevention/treatment to social services benefits assistance and nutrition. My role has deepened my understanding of the complex relationship between mental health, social support, and resource access, enabling me to effectively aid clients with diverse challenges. Living on three continents has broadened my cultural sensitivity, enhancing my therapy's relevance. I employ evidence-based methods like CBT and Mindfulness, focusing on a collaborative, client-centered approach. Committed to professional growth, I continuously update my knowledge to offer superior care, aiming for a comprehensive treatment perspective that fosters overall well-being.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I approach each client with a holistic perspective, considering their entire being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects—to understand and address their wellness needs fully. I firmly believe in the interconnectedness of these elements, emphasizing the importance of a comprehensive treatment approach over merely addressing isolated symptoms. My interactions with diverse cultures and ethnic groups across three continents have enriched my understanding and broadened my perspective. In my work, I've seen the profound impact of therapy on adolescents, helping them navigate the complexities of adolescence. Similarly, I've supported adults in overcoming work-related stress, relationship issues, and life transitions and have guided older adults through challenges related to aging, loss, and maintaining mental health. Driven by a passion for mental health advocacy and armed with clinical expertise, I am committed to providing compassionate and effective care.
