"What you think about you bring about." Think about this quote for a moment. It describes who you are. If you want to change your feelings and behaviors you must first change the way you think. Therapy begins the moment you pick-up the phone. It is my priority to personally respond to all inquiries and first time appointments. My number one goal is to help you make lasting changes in your life and to unleash your inner strength.

When people think of therapy they tend to imagine a scary place where they have to tap into themselves to open up to strangers. I became a therapist because I wanted to be that safe place for someone to feel comfortable opening up. Everyone has a story. Each person has the right to feel heard, not judged, safe, and understood. My goal is to help them reach that satisfaction in a safe non-judgmental zone.

A key ingredient to successful therapy is having a strong therapeutic relationship. To foster this relationship I am open and honest with my client's and create an environment that allow the people I work with to feel cared for, safe, and free from judgement. My main treatment method is cognitive behavioral therapy however I take an integrative approach to treatment. I consider the individual needs of my clients, I help them regulate their emotions, manage stressors, and function effectively in their daily lives. I work with my clients collaboratively to develop interventions and coping strategies that work for them.

I specialize in perinatal and infant mental health. Perinatal psychological issues occur in the times before, during, and/or after a pregnancy. Postpartum depression is the most often talked about condition, but symptoms are not always limited to AFTER a child is born. These feelings can be extremely distressing, especially during a time when others are expecting you to be happy. You may be suffering after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or even death during pregnancy. I can offer a comfortable, safe place for you to begin to heal and move forward.

During our most challenging seasons we can feel overwhelmed, stuck, and alone. Navigating these challenging seasons can be painful, as we often fail to manage the intensity of the thoughts and emotions experienced. Healthy choices that can be made, do not seem so clear. But, what if the difficult season is here to help us to discover something essential about ourselves or others? Once acknowledged as such, the process can begin of healing, living, and thriving as a new awareness is recognized, a need addressed, an opportunity seen, strengths developed; all leading to growth, deeper connection, and a greater sense of well-being.
