 A Little Bit More About Me

I graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a Master of Social Work and a Master of Women’s Studies. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Social Work at Smith College School for Social Work. My practice focuses on substance abuse and trauma (primary, secondary, attachment).

My approach in the therapy room is unique, progressive, and refreshing, offering various techniques, interventions, and theoretical foundations. I ground my orientation in psychodynamic theory, feminist theory, attachment theory, harm reduction, and the recovery model. Conceptualizing client systems, formulating treatment plans, and refining interventions are some of my favorite clinical activities.

I offer specialized training in the following areas of clinical practice:

  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Developmental and complex trauma
  • PTSD, secondary trauma
  • Substance use disorders and recovery
  • Transference and Countertransference
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Energy healing
  • Family healing and parent development
  • LGBTQ* community
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Harm reduction model
  • Gender-responsive treatment
  • Culturally responsive treatment
  • Marginalized populations
  • Privilege and oppression
  • Dual diagnosis in adults
  • Mindfulness practices
  • Meditation and visualization
  • Somatic interventions
  • Professional development
