Life can be tough, full of grief, and stressful, but it can also be hopeful. I’ve been there and others have walked with me through those hard times. So my desire is to do the same for individuals and couples who are going through grief, trauma, and other difficult experiences. Our struggles can make us feel isolated and lonely, but we each have the choice to not go through them alone. I believe that each life is more valuable than the burdens we carry so taking that first step towards hope by inviting another person to help you is a very courageous one. It is an honor and privilege for me to work with you on your journey towards healing and growth.
Seeing others overcome personal challenges always brings me great joy. I especially enjoy working with adult individuals who have been through childhood trauma and abuse. Cultivating an individual’s resilience, helping them to develop their own identity and voice, and witnessing them free themselves from the negative influences of past perpetrators is one of my passions.
I love Chicago and have lived here for most of my life. I enjoy exploring the various neighborhoods, local bakeries, and coffee shops, and learning about our city’s history. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends trying out new recipes and playing board games. Currently, I’m reading my favorite books from my childhood and discovering some new perspectives.
