When you enter through the journey of motherhood, there are often feelings of uncertainty, guilt, frustration, confusion, anxiety, and sadness. This rollercoaster of emotions is common, but does not have to be your long term experience of motherhood. Many of the moms I meet with are searching for a place where they can feel validated, but also want actionable steps they can use to improve their thinking patterns (negative self talk, self doubt, inner critic, intrusive thoughts), and their also manage their feelings about becoming a mom. You deserve to feel better and feel confident as a mom!
I help moms who are feeling overwhelmed by the experience of motherhood (at all stages). I am certified as a perinatal mental health therapist and have worked with moms with a various of concerns including OCD, anxiety, depression, identity confusion, grief, navigating partner challenges (default parent, resentment, communication), and boundary setting.
Two things can be true as a mom: it is hard, and it can be so rewarding. I get it, motherhood is hard. But you don't have to navigate it alone. I would be so honored to welcome you to my brand new "tree house" office or meet you virtually from the comfort of your home/car/work (babies are welcome!).

There is no "one size fits all approach." While I believe that building a solid therapeutic relationship is top priority, I often incorporate evidenced based treatment types, including: mindfulness, ACT, DBT, and solution focused techniques. I always approach treatment from trauma informed, culturally responsive, and socially inclusive values.
