I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist at Ashe Counseling and Coaching. I am often described as a passionate, cheerful, and thoughtful individual. My clients view me as calm, trustworthy, observant, and engaged. I enjoy empowering clients to use their voice to share their narratives, as they navigate their life experiences.
My purpose as a therapist is to create a safe space for clients to process who they are, where they have been, and where they are going as they continue their life’s journey. Therefore, my approach to working with clients incorporates the utilization of evidence- based therapies inclusive of Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. My interests and experience in working with individuals and families encompass depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, crisis, and
relationships. I believe that what is considered to be “normal” looks different for clients based on where they are in life. My goal as a therapist is to assist clients with their thought processes and equip them with the skillset to develop their new sense of “normal” as they embrace life changes.
I was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, later moving to the South Suburbs. In high school, I relocated to Arizona and returned to my home state to pursue higher education. I received my Bachelors in Human Development and Family Studies from University of Illinois @ Urbana-Champaign and earned my Masters in Social Work from Erikson Institute located in downtown Chicago.
My background and work experience is in homelessness, child welfare, housing, crisis intervention, and healthcare, in addition to research around addressing mental health within urban communities. I have had the honor
to serve diverse populations across the lifespan including children, youth and adolescents, adults, and geriatrics. I pride myself on being an informed “not knower,” as I strive to be a culturally, competent therapist.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I love embracing the serenity that life has to offer by being in nature, cooking, traveling, and listening to music. On any given day, you can catch me with a book in hand, enjoying a cup of tea.
