I recognize the evolving roles and responsibilities that come with life's changes. Especially when it comes to children, relationships and parenting. I am a wife, mother and therapist who truly "gets it". My clinical speciality is maternal mental health. I also provide individual and family counselling. In therapy, my emphasis is to build on my client's strengths to improve individual and family functioning.

Perinatal mental health issues can impact anyone, and they are more common than you may think. 1 in 5 women experience pregnancy or postpartum mental health issues, as well as 1 in 10 men. We hear frequently about postpartum depression, however postpartum anxiety is also very prevalent. I understand, and am here for you.

Babies are welcome!
