Bio

Life can be filled with stress, hurt and disappointment.  I firmly believe, through my own professional and personal experiences that counseling can be a therapeutic, calming and worthwhile experience.  My technique includes emphasizing strengths, supporting personal growth and prioritizing self-determination.

 

I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from University of Houston, Texas.  I am a member of Postpartum Support International (PSI), National Association of Social Work (NASW), and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT). I grew up in Los Angeles, California and now live in Illinois with my husband and three children.  In my free time I enjoy yoga, reading, museums in the city and horror films.

Bio

Therapy can provide you with support, encouragement, empowerment and healing as life can often be hard and stressful.  I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship is very important in the healing process. My goal is to work collaboratively with each individual, focusing on strength building and empowerment. I also try to add some humor into the sessions as laughter can minimize stress and aid in the healing process.

I am a bi-cultural, bilingual (Spanish) Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have 20 years of experience working in the mental health field.  I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from the Jane Addams School of Social Work UIC in Chicago, IL.  I am a member of Postpartum Support International (PSI), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association (EMDRIA). I have provided counseling and worked in the foster care system, community mental health, and domestic violence nonprofit agency. I love spending time with my family, reading, learning new things, yoga, coffee, and watching movies.

Bio

I am a firm believer that through life’s obstacles, we all have strengths that can help us overcome. Sometimes we just need someone to help us discover what we have within us, and how we can use them to be our best. Through the therapeutic process, I work collaboratively to suit the needs of each individual with the understanding that we all may need something a little different from the process.

 

 

I am a Licensed Professional counselor with experience working with children, teens, adults, and families. I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have provided counseling and worked within community mental health, higher education, and non profit organizations. I also love to write and have authored a book titled Adulting with ADHD, Navigating Adult Life with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In my free time I like to travel, create, and explore.
