I am a psychotherapist that specializes in working with clients experiencing anxiety and depression and multicultural issues relating to Black and Latinx culture. As a new mom and wife myself, I am passionate about advocating for women and working with clients on women’s issues ranging from identity, image and relationships to pregnancy and postpartum care. My other areas of clinical interest include marriage/couples counseling, and life transitions.
I approach my clinical work with a client-centered mindset. I prefer to meet clients where they are and find the right way forward for them. I enjoy using CBT to help clients challenge their own thought patterns. I believe that clients cannot outrun their own negative self talk. In order to move forward they must first confront those maladaptive thoughts and reframe them with more positive ideas. Along with CBT, I use ACT as well. I work with clients on the principles of acceptance. Guiding my clients to relinquish the idea of control, by accepting what is, can be a freeing experience.
I have over a decade of experience in healthcare ranging from private practices to hospitals. I have a background in patient advocacy where I’ve helped case management teams facilitate safe experiences for patients. After graduating from Northwestern University with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I began my clinical career from the United Kingdom where my family was stationed for my husband’s military career. I’ve spent the last year treating a range of clients via Telehealth in Kentucky. I am very excited about the prospect of continuing the work to help people heal and live lives that fulfill them.
