I am a Licensed Social Worker in the state of Illinois. I am originally from the city of Chicago. I came down to this community in Champaign-Urbana where I earned both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Illinois.
I have experience working with individuals of most ages, but most of my experience and my passion is working with older children through college-aged. I have experience with a variety of disorders and issues young people face such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, gender identity, sexual orientation, relationship stressors, and self-esteem.
Working with individuals that are driven to manage their strengths in order to be their best possible version is what I am most enthusiastic about. Therefore, in a secure and welcoming setting, I am committed to assisting clients in developing self awareness, useful skill sets, and the ability to make a healthy decision for themselves about what is best for them. I aim to develop strong relationships with those who have a desire to create an affirming and inclusive space to overcome or work through the good, the bad, and sometimes somewhere in between.
