I specialize in working with adult women with anxiety, depression, postpartum depression and anxiety, and those going through stressful life transitions.
Are you struggling with stress and anxiety? As women, we face a lot of complex issues. The pressure of wearing so many hats at once can feel overwhelming. You might be feeling like no one understands or has the time to listen to you. You are used to keeping it all inside and managing on your own, but it's not working anymore. You want to find peace and relief from the things that are keeping you from enjoying life. You deserve care that is compassionate and empowering. You don't have to manage all of these emotions by yourself anymore.

I work with issues such as spiritual questioning, spiritual abuse, perfectionism, body image, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, grief, relational issues, pregnancy / postpartum , parenting issues, and developmental and complex trauma.
Having personally experienced pain and struggle, I know how hard life can be. I've also felt the benefits of having a trusted person walk with me and help me make sense of my story. I feel honored to have the opportunity to journey with others, no matter what must be faced. No one is too broken for counseling or so untouched by brokenness that they cannot benefit from counseling. I work from the belief that all people have innate worth and dignity, and change happens when we are fully seen, known, and accepted by others. With warmth, empathy, and genuineness, my goal is to work together to remove obstacles in the way of your growth.

We all face difficult experiences that can seem unmanageable. You may be struggling with anxiety or depression, or with old or new trauma. Perhaps your closest relationships have become a source of stress instead of a source of comfort. Maybe you are experiencing grief and loss. Going through these experiences results in a decline in your general well-being and happiness. Beginning counseling with a warm and compassionate person can promote growth and healing and lead to a more peaceful and fulfilled life. My approach offers an in-depth understanding of your struggles to make long lasting changes in your life and relationships.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Most people view therapy as a one sided conversation, with minimal opportunity for interaction. I want to help you accomplish whatever solutions and life changes you are seeking while enjoying the process as much as possible. Simply put, therapy does not always have to be a painful experience. Reaching out to a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a couple of deep breaths) to call and see how I can help you.

Pregnancy, Prenatal, Postpartum Therapists

What are the most effective ways to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns?

The most effective way to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns is by finding a therapist who has prior experience helping other patients overcome the challenge being faced. For example, a marriage and family therapist may have experience helping couples adjust to their new relationship dynamic. An anxiety specialist may have experience helping with phobias or illness anxiety related to the child’s health. A depression specialist may have experience treating postpartum depression.

When should I seek treatment for prenatal or postpartum concerns?

Pregnancy and the postpartum period involve intense physical and mental changes; a degree of upset and instability is normal. However, if these changes impair daily functioning, it may be time to seek help. This distinction is pertinent for postpartum depression: A period of teariness, irritability, and distress is difficult but normal in the one to two weeks after childbirth (sometimes called the “baby blues.”) But if feelings of sadness and hopelessness persist beyond that period, the person should seek treatment.

How do I manage worries during pregnancy or the postnatal period?

A therapist can help patients develop the tools they need to manage anxieties during or after pregnancy. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help people identify and reframe harmful patterns of thought, and change their behaviors. Other techniques and skills can allow people to develop acceptance, psychological flexibility, self-compassion, communication skills, and more.

Are there specific medications for postpartum depression?

In 2019, the FDA approved the first medication designed to treat postpartum depression. The medication is called brexanolone and is delivered intravenously by a medical professional over the course of a few days. However, typical antidepressants, which are more accessible, can also treat postpartum depression. The disorder is often best treated through a combination of medication and therapy.
