Professional statement

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and an Ordained Minister of the Gospel… … I’ve spent over 20+ years with people whose lives have been impacted by anxiety, trauma, grief, crisis, violence, and other messed-up stuff no one likes to talk about.

I became a therapist so I could work towards helping the hurting people in my community, Humboldt Park, Northwest side of Chicago. I want to be the one person who comes alongside a client and knows that I really have their back and understand them in a world where it seems no one understands each of them.


Message to clients

I am a strength-based, cognitive-behavioral therapist and provide my clients with helpful strategies and tools to feel better overall.

After I graduated from Trinity Christian College with a bachelor’s in Psychology and Theology and a master’s in Social Worker from Loyola University, I have worked in both elementary and high schools as a school Social Worker.

As an Ordained Minister at New Life Covenant, it has been a great honor and privilege to work with the hurting in the Humboldt Park Community.

I love my job as a therapist. Helping people struggling with mental health issues find relief and joy once again is my greatest joy.
