Staff Therapist

2020 – The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology

Clinical and Counseling Interests:

As a therapist, I have an integrative approach to counseling that is focused on a client’s needs and who they are as a human. I include elements of interpersonal process, mindfulness, trauma-informed, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavior (DBT) approaches that are all highly informed upon by multicultural and social justice frameworks. I believe therapy is most successful when it is safe and collaborative, and I strive to co-construct this environment with every client. I have experience working with individuals who are managing depression, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal/relational concerns, parent-child dynamics, emotional regulation concerns, and suicide/self-injury, along with a variety of additional presenting concerns.

Multicultural Interests:

I am personally and professionally committed to diversity, equity, and social justice. I am dedicated to growing as an accomplice and advocate for all people, especially individuals who hold historically oppressed identities. In addition, I am passionate about working with individuals and communities with privileged identities as they work to understand their privilege and challenge white supremacy. I have experience and interests in working with members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, first generation college students, racial and ethnic identities, and women’s issues.

Outreach:

My research has been largely focused on the relationship between language and prejudice, and the impact these experiences have on an individual. I have experience facilitating outreach focused on power, privilege, and white fragility. Additionally, I enjoy doing outreach on topics related to burnout, self-care, trauma, sexual assault awareness, domestic violence, and suicide prevention.
