I decided to become a counselor after personally experiencing how transformative therapy could be. As a woman of color who often navigates societal disempowerment, I was skeptical that any counselor could understand the dynamics of marginalization. Instead, I discovered the power of responsive, collaborative counseling that directly named and addressed these dynamics. With that, I found a passion for helping others who have felt devalued, heal and grow from those experiences.
As a counselor, I create space for people to discover their inner voice, as well as the strengths that may have been overshadowed by oppressive experiences. It takes a lot of courage to move from a place of “comfortable turmoil ” to an unknown place where health is possible. Too often, people aren’t given space in their relationships to really “go deep.” Through conversations that move from surface topics to a deeper, more meaningful realm, I help people understand where they are in their own story and when they are ready, helping them sketch a healthy next chapter and walk into it.
I have experience working with young professionals and college students, racial identity, spiritual concerns, life transitions, grief/loss, and family of origin issues.
I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Loyola University Chicago. I received a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wheaton College and a B.A. in Psychology from Northwestern University. In my free time, I love to ponder art, write, and take salsa dancing lessons with my partner.
