With over twenty years of experience, Dr. Porter has provided community psychology services in Chicagoland, various cities in the United States, and even Ghana, Africa.

Dr. Porter is passionate about providing psychological services and considers herself blessed with the gift of healing. She looks forward to serving you and helping you achieve balance
