Growing up on the south side of Chicago afforded me an insight into the negative and destructive patterns that people engage in. As a child, I just couldn’t understand why people did the same things repeatedly when the action was often hurtful to themselves or their loved ones. As I grew, I discovered that many people wanted to stop their negative actions but just did not know how. As a therapist I find that working alongside clients empowers them to control or decrease the negative patterns in their lives and enables them to lead the life of their choosing.
I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in a wide variety of diverse settings. I have worked in public school systems, non-profit organizations, universities, hospitals and outpatient clinics in areas such as Chicago, IL, Washington D.C., and most recently, the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC.
During my years as a therapist, I have witnessed the destruction that can be caused when individuals find themselves stuck in their own negative cycles. As a therapist I am driven to empower my clients to end the negative cycles that prevent them from living their best lives.
