"Are you a lesbian couple in the process of deciding to become parents? Are you an individual seeking support while you and your partner are thinking about beginning a family? There are unique decisions that you may be currently facing such as, pregnancy or adoption, which partner will become pregnant, and how will both partners feel involved as parents. It is important for you to have a safe space to explore these questions. There are feelings that accompany the decisions that you are making, and partners may feel differently. This sometimes challenges the connection between you."

"Do you feel trapped by your past and anxious about your future, unable to live in the present? This malaise of modern living is often a sign of past trauma. I can help you uncover the experiences that keep you from living a full and zestful life. My primary focus is with women and parents, particularly those with a history of trauma. In therapy you'll explore the feelings that arise in your body, and notice their links to negative thoughts. You can choose a new and more positive narrative, to look at your life through a different lens."
