I am passionate about helping people and relationships grow and thrive by managing conflict, improving communication, working through trauma, and achieving identified goals.
Clinical And Educational Background
I received my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2011, and since then have undergone continued training specializing in trauma informed approaches, and conflict resolution. I am Gottman Level 1 Certified. I operate from a trauma informed perspective– recognizing that many people have had, or currently experience trauma. I understand the need for emotional safety and trustworthiness in a therapist, and work with clients to regain a sense of empowerment in their lives.My preferred treatment modality is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Gottman Method, through which I help with individuals and couples stop fighting against the pain of their past, navigate conflict management, and build a rich and meaningful life.
To facilitate sustainable and healthy change in each person I work with, thereby positively affecting their view of self, their relationships, and larger community.
