I am currently a graduate student attending Adler University for my PsyD degree. I currently have my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Adler and received my Bachelors degree from Loyola University of Chicago. I was born and raised here in Chicago and love the city for its diversity and amazing food! I have enjoyed growing as a clinician and learning valuable skills. I have experience working with children and adolescents ranging from the ages of five to eighteen. I enjoy working with children and adolescents and plan to continue working with this population, making a meaningful impact on their lives.
My goal is to help children and adolescents overcome different obstacles in their lives and help them develop skills to help them move forward. I want to provide for them a safe space in therapy where they can express themselves freely and grow. I believe every person is unique and should be treated as such, my therapeutic approach is more humanistic, seeing the person for who they are and working collaboratively to help meet their needs.
When I am not in class or practicing therapy, I enjoy being at home with my four legged baby boy watching my favorite childhood cartoons. I also volunteer at an animal shelter working specifically with dogs. I love dogs and believe they have a meaningful purpose in our lives and one day will incorporate dogs into my therapy sessions.
