I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker dedicated to providing approachable and compassionate psychotherapy to individuals and families.
I use a client-centered approach that is personalized based on your individual needs, desires, and strengths. I am passionate about offering compassion, support, and guidance to those I work with, while creating an open and positive environment where my clients can feel comfortable to grow.
I completed my undergraduate degree in political science at Lake Forest College in 2007, and went on to receive my MSW (Masters in Social Work) from Loyola University Chicago in 2010. Prior to founding my private psychotherapy practice, I worked as a Crisis Therapist at Community Counseling Centers of Chicago.
In 2017, I received my Yoga Instructor Certification through Yoga Now Chicago. Today, I incorporate yoga and its mindfulness-based principles into my private psychotherapy practice. I also have training in and experience with CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), and incorporate these modalities into my approach.
I believe in working with my clients to develop and enhance healthy coping skills, recognize and redirect negative patterns, and cultivate acceptance and self-awareness in order to heal holistically.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to mental health: we all have our own challenges, our own personal experiences, and our own strengths and struggles. In my practice, treatment direction and goals are personalized for your optimal happiness.
When I’m not in the office, you can usually find me connecting with nature, doing yoga, or spending time with my French bulldog, Poppy.
