I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the states of Illinois and Indiana. I hold two master's degrees and one Ph.D. in counseling psychology and over ten years of clinical experiences. In my work with clients, I emphasize understanding, empathy, and a trusting therapeutic relationship as the foundations of treatment. I strive cultivate the conditions for change: acceptance, compassion, and authenticity. My clinical style integrates a number of theories, skills, and techniques, including emotion-focused therapy, person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance-commitment therapy, existential therapy, and gestalt therapy. I specialize in processing trauma and working through chronic suffering emotions.
