I am a fourth-year doctoral student studying clinical psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. The vast majority of my experiences thus far have been within forensic and correctional settings, though I am expanding my experience here at CCA and with trauma exposed veterans within the VA (US Dept of Veteran’s Affairs) system. In my free time I enjoy rock climbing at one of the many local indoor climbing gyms, mountaineering, spending time outdoors, and visiting with my friends and loved ones.
I work well with a diverse range of adults at different places in their journey toward mental wellness. I view therapy as being a collaborative experience where we work toward goals identified by the client.
I am interested in working with adults and couples who are experiencing interpersonal/relational conflicts, mood disorders, grief, difficulties managing their emotions, and general anxiety/distress.
What I’m like as a therapist: I approach therapy through an interpersonal lens, paying attention to how our key relationships, both current and throughout our lives, help inform who we are. In therapy, I take a warm, non-judgmental approach and engage with my clients authentically, offering a safe place for reflection and transformation. I also utilize evidence-based coping skills to help my clients become more efficient in managing their distress in their daily lives. I believe that we are all more than the worst things we’ve ever done and strongly believe in our abilities to grow. I enter therapy with the goal to show compassion and empathy to my clients, allowing my clients to find the humanity and redemption within themselves.
