About Me

I am honored to be with others as they explore their goals, enact change, and move forward in ways that they desire. As a LCSW, I use a mixture of therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal, mindfulness, motivational interviewing and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) to help others in their process. I bring energy, positivity and humor to our sessions. I currently work at Transformative Therapy, a private practice in Chicago, and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from working 8 years in community mental health clinics, providing harm reduction services and substance use outpatient and intensive outpatient services. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please email me.
