Accepting Clients

I received my Master’s in Counseling from Northwestern University. I currently have virtual availability only.

Therapist in Oak Park, IL
Supervised by Elana Marie Thomas Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW

About My Clients

I support adult individuals and couples through challenges associated with anxiety, depression, masculinity, mixed-race identity, life transitions, self-esteem, communication, and relationship functioning. Though I see myself as an active participant in your therapeutic journey, I aim to provide you with the space to take ownership of your healing. In other words, we will work at your pace to better understand what makes you the person you are today.

My Background and Approach

Collaboration and self-reflection are at the core of my therapeutic practice, and I aim to demonstrate a genuine sense of curiosity for who you are in all facets of your being. As a psychodynamic therapist, I naturally gravitate towards exploring how your important life experiences and relationships might inform how you navigate life and its challenges. Ultimately, our work together will allow you to experience alternative ways of relating to yourself and others, as well as new ways of coping with your troubles.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe relationships built on genuine qualities of understanding, trust, and acceptance have the power to heal us. I thoroughly enjoy this kind of work, and it is a privilege to create a space in which you feel comfortable sharing your innermost world, perhaps for the very first time. If you think we might be a good fit, please feel free to reach out for a free 15-minute phone consultation where we can further discuss your therapeutic needs.
