I’m a licensed therapist trained and experienced in women's wellness and perinatal mental health.
Feeling stuck? Have you noticed a decline in your mood or anxiety (ruminating over the "what ifs") is becoming more difficult to ignore? Are you struggling with self-doubt, feelings of guilt, or setting boundaries? Are you struggling with infertility and unsure how to navigate your grief? Maybe you feel that being a new parent is not what you expected? Life is too short to surrender to overwhelming thoughts and feelings. With over a decade of experience in the mental health field, I can appreciate the need for time and a safe space to problem solve and learn new strategies and skills to help you become your best self.

In pregnancy and parenthood, making appointments can be hard.
The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with individuals and couples in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy , postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.

Do you find yourself stuck in a cycle of emotional pain, where you seem to be living through the same suffering over and over again? You may have insight into some areas of your troubles but feel overwhelmed when making changes. Persistent struggles represent ways of coping that have developed over time, usually starting in childhood. As your therapist, I want to learn about how your life experiences have shaped how you see yourself and how this impacts your world. It is always my goal to make my clients feel supported and safe to fully experience uncomfortable emotions as they come up.

Is the inside of your head feeling like an uncomfortable place to be? Working with a mental health professional can create a meaningful shift. Sometimes the harsh things we say to ourselves and our unconscious patterns can leave us trapped in a cycle of just trying to survive the day. Could the way you've learned to cope/survive be keeping you stuck or moving you away from who you want to be and how you want to live? Learning to see yourself, your life, and your patterns clearly can create opportunities for healing, growth, and more meaningful relationships.
