I am a graduate student from Schaumburg, Illinois! I graduated with my BA in Psychology and Spanish and am currently working on my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I work as an eating disorder counselor and freelance graphic designer, and hope to become a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor specializing in treating eating disorders and PTSD.
I have worked for several years as a tutor at the high school and college level, but it is really my clinical counseling work that drives my teaching approach now. I am a huge advocate of client empowerment and getting my students excited about learning. I will meet you where you are at academically, but am not afraid to push you. But I promise I will be there every step of the way. My absolute favorite quote and mantra is "I can't promise to fix all of your problems, but I can promise you won't face them all alone."
When I'm not studying, tutoring, and counseling, you can probably find me running or doing yoga. I also love to write for my blog, read new books, and spend time with my siblings and few close friends. My favorite color is purple, if I could live on a beach in Spain I would, and Leslie Knope is my spirit animal.
I cannot wait to connect and work with you!
