I am currently completing this clinical internship to complete my Masters Degree in Social Work at the University of Illinois. I have experience working with all ages on a variety of issues. I have been an activity therapist to youth in an inpatient psychiatric setting, and I have supported the elderly with medical complications through a program designed to assist them with the transition from hospital to home.
I understand that everyone struggles in their life. Those struggles do not define you as a person. I am dedicated to helping you find the tools you need to work through those struggles.
I will use different techniques from strength based theories that best fit you. Some of those theories I will use are CBT, Motivational Interviewing, the Life Model, and Narrative Theory.
