Life can be challenging. It can be easier with the right support and it takes courage to seek out this help. I view therapy as a safe place to discuss worries, frustrations, barriers, and joys with a non-judgmental person with who is trained to listen and help. It is a good place to discuss both the past and the present and the connections between the two. Therapy can help you to move toward healing and having a fuller life.
I strive to understand you as a whole person who exists within many environments and relationships. I aim to create a relationship with you in which you feel understood, heard, and valued. My approach is collaborative and focused on helping you to better understand yourself, build upon your strengths, and think about how to move toward your personal goals. I draw from relational psychodynamic, feminist, cross-cultural, and anti-racist approaches.
Previous experience in working in university counseling centers (including University of Illinois at Chicago and DePaul University), a community hospital, and community mental health centers has prepared me to work with a wide range of people and concerns. I have a strong interest in working with university students, international students, immigrants and refugees, and people of Color or other marginalized peoples. I regularly present, write, and consult about race and gender, as well as social justice related topics.
In addition to providing clinical services, I have been focused on training future psychologists and counselors, including providing clinical supervision, didactic clinical training, teaching courses, and training administration. Prior to my current role at Center Focused Therapy, I was the Training Director at DePaul University Counseling Services and oversaw a large, Advanced Therapy Externship program. I also served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Chicagoland Externship and Practicum Training (ACEPT), including a term as President, and remain involved with this wonderful community. I earned my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Boston College.
Finding a good match in therapy is important. I welcome the opportunity to talk with you to determine whether we would be a good fit.
