My Story

My journey started at Howard University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Spanish. Quickly after that, I returned to the western suburbs of Chicago and obtained my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wheaton College. I have also completed specialized training to become a Registered Play Therapist, which helps child clients more effectively process and explore the world around them. My passion for helping and educating others about mental health was sparked and I was ready to make a career our of it. Over the past eight years, I have had training in treating traumatized children, adolescents, and young adults. In my prior experiences, I provided school-based counseling services at the high school and middle school levels. I started my career serving in community mental health agencies for several years and then I ventured off into private practice. My clinical expertise includes working with at-risk youth, family conflict, emotional regulation, anxiety, depression, stress, identity, self-esteem, anger, life transitions, and trauma. 


My therapeutic approach is centered around the person. I believe that the relationship with the client is a vital component in a successful counseling experience. Utilizing Child-Centered, Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic approaches, I provide a safe space for clients to explore their authentic self.

Outside of the therapy room, I enjoy exercising at Orangetheory Fitness, spending time with loved ones, burning candles, and enjoying a good cup of tea!

My Vision


Mental Health Moments started as an educational platform where I educated, advocated, and helped individuals in the community become aware of mental health. I wanted to take it a step further and begin to offer therapy services to people in my community that are suffering with their mental health and those that just want to live a better life. So, I launched Mental Health Moments Counseling.

Mission Statement


It is my mission that individuals are able to stop and take a moment for themselves and their mental health. We live in a world where we are always on the move and we disregard our emotional well-being. We get so caught up in life's demands, that we don't take time to process our mental health and experiences. I want to create safe spaces where people make time for themselves and show up for themselves in a way that is life changing. Therapy is for anyone and everyone, no matter your background or where you come from. Your well-being is a priority!


Therapy is a journey, but you can take it one moment at a time. Let's continue to break the stigma surrounding mental health and focus on it, so that we can strive towards wellness.
