I am a Mater's Level Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) Student Intern at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have a Master's Degree in Divinity from McCormick Theological Seminary and completed a one-year residency in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE). Throughout my academic studies, practicum, and career as a Hospital Chaplain, I've had the opportunity to work alongside a diversified clientele that has shaped my ability to be understanding and empathic. I have experience helping others address grief, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, family systems, post-traumatic stress, and more.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most valuable aspect of the counseling experience. To reform and reshape negative cognition that impacts feelings and subsequent behavior that may be distressing for clients. I use Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Person-centered, Narrative, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy methods to help clients alter their narratives and gain new perspectives.
I am passionate about meeting people at the crossroads of life and helping them cross to the other side. I am a goal-oriented counselor that works in conjunction with each client to tailor their counseling experience to address current issues. Through the use of an integrative approach, we can accomplish wellness in everyday life.

I utilize collaborative language systems, and experiential approaches along with others that will be beneficial to the Therapeutic relationship to optimize therapy outcomes for each individual client.
My approach is to truly come from a loving place, where judgement is left at the door before you enter a session, where you can lay your problems all on the table and leave a session with the weight of the world no longer on your shoulders.

I am currently a graduate student at Capella University as part of the Master of Science Clinical Counseling program. Throughout my 13 years working in Social Services, I saw firsthand how many of my clients suffered with undiagnosed mental health issues and addiction. These experiences have helped me to develop an understanding of the challenges many clients face navigating their mental health and life.
I have had the opportunity to work with clients of diverse backgrounds and all walks of life dealing with co-occurring mental illnesses. It is my belief that meeting a client where they are is the beginning of a positive therapeutic relationship and by working together, we can help them to manage their mental health challenges.
I focus on client-centered and cognitive behavioral theories; however, I do utilize other theories that are geared at helping the clients focus inward and begin to make changes within themselves. Respect and understanding of my clients are of the utmost importance while ensuring that I am equipped with the knowledge to provide them with the best therapeutic experience.
I provide a safe space for the client without judgement while assisting them to overcome the situations they are facing and equip them with tools they can utilize while managing mental health challenges.

I am a graduate student at Capella University pursuing a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy and currently certified in Contemporary Theory in Couple and Family Systems. Through my academic roadmap, I have obtained therapeutic experience that has proven to be significantly valuable in my overall development as a future clinician.
I primarily utilize emotionally focused therapy models in my therapeutic approach; however, I leverage other effective therapy models that are beneficial to supporting the best possible outcome within the therapeutic relationship. Understanding and identifying the true need of my clients are the centerpiece of the therapeutic approach. My goal as a therapist it to partner with and fully understand my client in addition to growing with my client through their personalized experience in therapy.
My approach is to provide a safe space emotionally for each client where vulnerability is normalized, and judgment is non-existent. Together we will establish awareness, accountability, and a true path forward that will create positive momentum. My goal is to incite the confidence within clients to face any emotional or mental challenges within the framework of everyday life.
Grace is always free, and we all need it at some point in life!
