My Story

I decided to become a therapist for many different reasons. As a kid, I personally struggled with anxiety, and found that the Social Workers in my school were essential to my success. I initially began studying in Nashville, TN to pursue a degree in Music Therapy. While I loved the program I was part of, I decide to come back to Chicago, IL to pursue a degree in Social Work. I have experience with adolescents, children, and adults in various settings.

My Blue Bird Day

I personally have never worked at Blue Bird Day, however many of the therapists that I worked with at past clinics are now working at Blue Bird Day. I have heard countless amazing things about the program and its success in creating a therapeutic environment for children to thrive.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. My professional career encompasses a variety of goals. I want to be able to help and support my clients and their families, while taking into account their individual qualities and circumstances. I want to provide a safe environment for those I work with, as well as my clients. Ultimately I aim to provide my clients and their families with resources to help them thrive.
