About My Clients

Are you someone who is looking for help or support in your non-traditional relationship structure or sexuality? Are you struggling to feel seen or heard in these identities? As a relational therapist, I recognize that our connections with others are the basis of both the greatest struggles and the greatest rewards we can know. I desire to work with people who are seeking to flesh out their sense of identity and strengths, and through doing so, relate to others more authentically and skillfully.

My Background and Approach

In 2017, I graduated from DePaul University with a Bachelor of the Arts in Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies. In 2022, I received a Master of Science in Couple and Family Therapy from Purdue University Northwest. Throughout my experience as a practicing clinician, I have found ways to marry my undergraduate and graduate experiences in a way that honors clients’ perspectives and connects the stories that arise in therapy to overarching themes and systems of influence. My therapeutic approach is based in narrative and feminist therapies and focuses on the strengths that the client brings to the therapy room. I often use queer, phenomenological, and critical race theories when conceptualizing cases and focus on intersectionality as it relates to my clients and the therapeutic process. Collaboration and transparency are the main tenants of my practice; checking in with clients and holding space for their concerns and goals is at the center of my practice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Because I so strongly believe in the collaborative nature of therapy, your experience in the therapy room is of the utmost importance to me. I will check in to make sure we are achieving the goals that are most important to you. By taking this client-centered approach, I hope to hold space for you and all identities you bring with you. Therapy works when you feel it does, and I want to make sure that all parts of you are feeling seen.
