COUNSELING APPROACH

Building rapport and trust with clients is the ultimate predictor of change; therefore it is imperative for me to develop a positive and mutually respectful relationship with clients in order to honestly assist them on their journey of  change. I provide a nurturing experience for those I meet with, while still addressing their needs in a professional manner. I use an empathetic approach so that I can understand where a client is in their stage of change and collaborate with them on their personal goals. I have experience connecting with clients of various cultures and welcome meeting with those of a multi‐cultural background. I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy, but I also utilize an integrative approach to address clients’ specific challenges.  Much of my experience has been working with children, adolescents, and families with a focus on attachment, trauma, grief and loss, parenting, anxiety, and mood disorders. Beyond this, I also work with a variety of clients including adults and couples. 

Biography

I am a Clinical Professional Counselor licensed in the state of Illinois. In addition to outpatient counseling in an office setting, I work as a counselor for children, adolescents, and families in the foster care system. I have experience working at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s Counseling Services where I provided mental health assessments, intake assessments, and group therapy for students.  Prior to this, I worked in a crisis program to assist children, adolescents, and their families work towards mental health and environmental stability. Preceding this, I attended the Chicago School of Professional Psychology to obtain my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. While earning my degree, I interned in higher education settings providing counseling to traditional and non-traditional students. Additionally, I served chronically mentally ill individuals as a direct support professional. Before earning a Master’s degree, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
