About

Being a caregiver can be a landmine, and when that landmine gets tripped, it can look much different than just burnout. It can look like always doing and moving and worrying, because of a fear of everything falling apart if you slow down. It can look like feeling disconnected from or mistrusting of your body or emotions. It can look like self-sacrifice being a measure of your worth. It can look like rage, helplessness, and scary intrusive thoughts. And it can certainly feel like it's a YOU problem, when really, you may be responding the best you know how to an unsupportive environment.
I am an LCSW, certified in perinatal mental health. I have 12+ years of clinical experience, and have specialized training in EMDR, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, trauma and attachment, pregnancy and infant loss, trauma-informed yoga, anxiety, caregiver burnout, birth trauma, infertility, postpartum rage, and reproductive and social justice.
I work with people who hold caregiver identities: parents, therapists, birth workers, health professionals, educators, and many other helpers and healers. Together, we work to understand what your symptoms are telling you and find ways to create safety and stability, build resources, and find yourself and your needs within the care you give.
