Agnes completed her Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master’s degree through Northwestern University, where she experienced internship opportunities in various mental health settings including private practice and higher level of care. Influenced by her experiences in intense clinical settings, Agnes specializes in working with teenagers and young adults going through a wide range of challenges including depression, anxiety and stress, conflict with parents, relationship conflict, trauma, distress around life transitions, identity issues, self-harm and suicidality, and self-esteem related issues. Most recently, Agnes developed a specialty supporting individuals with ADHD and Autism and is motivated to dispel myths about neurodivergence and empower individuals who have been overlooked or misdiagnosed to take control of their lives.

In addition to her work with individuals, Agnes is as an advocate with all support systems for her clients. She provides parenting sessions to educate, empower and support parents, providing them with effective strategies on how to create a healthy and supportive home. Agnes also works with couples, facilitating growth and understanding within relationships. She also is experienced working with latency aged children and those with disordered eating behaviors. Agnes is a true advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, working to support them, and their allies, in their individual journey.

In session, Agnes mainly utilizes elements of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and trauma-informed approaches to facilitate growth and healing. Drawing from her yoga teacher training in India, Agnes incorporates yoga and mindfulness in her practice. In addition, Agnes uses art therapy techniques to elicit processing, increase insight, and foster healing through art.

Clients describe Agnes as a wonderful listener with great relatability. She provides firm and healthy boundaries in a safe and nurturing space. Her positive energy and inclusive nature assists her clients in finding the motivation for making the changes necessary for their mental health goals.

Outside of counseling, Agnes likes playing video games, being surrounded by nature by going on walks and hikes, starting an art project or a knitting/crochet project, spending time with her fur and scale babies, or practicing yoga in her cozy attic space she converted into a self-care space at home.

“We think that children act, whereas what they mostly do is react. Parents who realize this acquire a powerful tool. By noticing their own responses to the child, rather than fixating on the child’s responses to them, they free up tremendous energy for growth.” – Gabor Mate
