I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in working with pregnant women, new mothers, and families with very young children. I work with children and parents who are struggling with a variety of concerns - attachment difficulties, feeding problems, anxiety/shyness, social skills problems, developmental delays, and bereavement/loss. I also provide adult psychotherapy, particularly with parents who are interested in exploring why certain areas of parenting can be so challenging and how their own history may affect their role as a parent now. Emotional support, guidance, and coaching for parents.

My specialty includes working with pregnant women and new mothers. The transition to parenthood can be a very exciting time in a woman's life, but it can also be very stressful and demanding. I also work with women and couples dealing with fertility and reproductive loss issues.

My expertise includes parent-infant psychotherapy with infants, toddlers, and children from birth to 5 years of age. In addition to working in the office, I conduct home visits as well as daycare / preschool observations and consultations.
