Accepting Clients

Hi! I am a bilingual therapist with a passion for art and healing and I would love to get to know you and offer my guidance and support.

Art Therapist in Chicago, IL
Supervised by Jenny Martin PsyD

About My Clients

I want to help you gain control of thinking patterns and conditioned emotions to get to where you want to be- both personally and professionally. I work with people experiencing trauma, depression, anxiety, life adjustments, identity exploration, self-esteem issues, and stress, and I greatly enjoy incorporating the arts into sessions when appropriate. I offer telehealth across the state of Illinois, and I offer in person sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings. I hope to hear from you!

My Background and Approach

The therapeutic relationship is a crucial component in my work as a mental health provider, and I recognize the privilege I have of holding your trust with honor. I have worked with individuals from diverse populations with various backgrounds. I work across a wide range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. All paths towards healing are unique, which is why my approach is flexible and includes a number of different techniques that are catered to each individual and their specific needs. My approach is a blend of Person-Centered Theory that includes evidence-based practices such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Therapy. I am passionate about using creative-based methods in my practice and will integrate art-based modalities, when appropriate, in my approach as well.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionately committed to helping people who have experienced issues with self-love and self-identity, and those who are struggling to live their fullest, most authentic lives. I meet individuals where they are, and believe that clients are their own experts in their lives. As a woman of color and the daughter of immigrants, I believe that it is important to honor the lived experiences that we've had that shaped us to who we are today. Through therapy together I strive to empower my clients to be their authentic selves and to be comfortable naming their needs and boundaries in and out of therapy. Change can be uncomfortable and scary, especially when it is necessary for personal development and growth. It can feel as if you’re going through the waves alone, but everyone deserves to be heard, seen, and supported. I'm here to do that with you, so please reach out!
