It is a difficult and yet very brave step to reach out for help when you are struggling in life - and even more difficult to reach out to a stranger. Whether it is particular life challenges, mental health or medical issues, difficult relationships, or thought or behavior patterns you are ready to change, my goal will be to help you to feel understood and supported while we create a plan to help you reach your goals. Medications, therapy, coping tools, nutrition, building a support network and self-care are all modalities we can choose to support you.
I specialize in Women’s Mental Health issues, including preconception, pregnancy and postpartum, parenting and other relationship challenges. I also treat, depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, ADHD, eating disorders, and grief and loss. As an adult trained psychiatrist I have experience with a wide range of mental health challenges across the lifespan.
My approach is rooted in understanding your unique experiences, strengths, and challenges - I want my clients to feel seen and understood. Together, we'll craft a personalized and effective treatment plan that considers all aspects of your life. I am dedicated to providing high-quality care that infuses kindness, warmth and compassion.

I generally use a flexible and integrative approach to therapy, weaving various modalities into our work based on clinical needs. I always use an evidence-based approach such that our work is both personable and grounded in science. If appropriate, I can take a structured approach, like CBT, to address clinical needs or use a more process-oriented approach to gain inside and understanding.
