I earned my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and I am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the same institution. I am in my fourth year of training. Thus far, I have worked with clients in an inpatient setting specifically for young children and adolescents as well as an outpatient diagnostic and treatment center for children with developmental and behavioral challenges. I enjoy creating strong therapeutic relationships with children and their families through empathy and understanding. I strive to provide culturally responsive care to clients and take on a strengths-based approach. While providing therapy, I incorporate play therapy, cognitive-behavioral, and relational approaches in my work.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I like to explore coffeeshops throughout the city and enjoy a good brunch on Sunday mornings. I enjoy going to live music shows and traveling.
