As a fierce advocate for individuals’ rights and innate strength with a passion for social justice, I believe in meeting my clients where they are at and supporting them in making meaningful changes and overcoming life’s struggles. I respect the profound impact trauma can have on our lives and the very real possibility of healing. I have over ten years of experience as a clinical social worker in a variety of settings, including child welfare and community mental health; however, my passion is supporting women and their loved ones navigating challenges related to pregnancy, postpartum, infertility, and perinatal loss.

When life becomes too difficult, we often feel like there is something fundamentally wrong within us. We feel invisible, left out, and misunderstood. As women, we are constantly trying to do more while being told by the world around us that we are not good enough. You need to be the perfect student, the caring daughter, and the supportive friend. You need to be the patient mother, loving partner, and an uncompromising independent career woman. You have to do it all-- and you carry an unyielding emotional burden because of it.
