Being a woman in America in 2022 is not easy. A mentor of mine once said that she did not envy my experience as a woman today. She grew up in a different time, a time when she was expected to be a good mother for her children and a responsible homemaker for her husband. Today, beyond these roles, there is a subtle, quiet undercurrent of expectations including, but by no means limited to, being a “good” wife, sister, friend, and neighbor (what does “good” mean anyway?), a career woman , an impromptu party host with a meticulous home, and a selfless volunteer in the community, all while maintaining a size 2 figure.

My 30 years of practicing psychotherapy have taught me to be an excellent listener, to value each unique individual who comes into my office and an empathic and compassionate human being. I strive to help each client get to know and value who they are, create gratifying careers and interpersonal relationships based on trust, deep emotional connection and self expression. I see my role as that of a guide and facilitator in the therapy process and I invite you to let me be by your side as you begin your own personal journey.

I especially enjoy supporting and empowering women through periods of transition.
Do you feel unsatisfied in your relationships or in your work life? Do you notice yourself facing the same issue time and time again? Perhaps you find yourself second-guessing every decision or just never feeling like you are “good enough.” If this sounds familiar, I can help. Through a relationship characterized by safety and trust, I will support you to uncover the unhelpful beliefs, underlying emotions, and past experiences that are keeping you stuck. In doing so, you will learn to make better choices, turn goals into realities, and find a greater sense of peace in your day-to-day life.

I specialize in working with women and mothers.
Adjusting to parenthood is one of the most profound transitions you will have in your lifetime. It is a time when support is truly needed. Not only is motherhood physically exhausting at times; it can be emotionally draining as well. The highs and pure love are often coupled with lows and uncertainty. Unfortunately, moms often do not share experiences that are outside the happiness ideal. If you are experiencing both highs and lows or feelings of ambivalence, you are not alone. These feelings are not a reflection of who you are as a person or mother.

I have worked closely with the perinatal community as a prenatal yoga instructor and a postpartum doula. I was also an educator prior to having my own children. I enjoy helping women and families move through major life transitions. As a woman transitions into motherhood, she has specific developmental hurdles such as learning to adapt to a new role and growing comfortable with a shift in her identity. Simultaneously, she is creating a bond with and relentlessly tending to the needs of her infant. Such change and energy consumption can lead to many difficult emotions that need to be processed and normalized for the new mother.

Are you constantly running on empty? You put on a brave smile and say you’re fine when you know you’re not. You’re exhausted because you’ve been carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You’re isolated because you don’t recognize the woman you see in the mirror. You’re confused because you’ve lost sight of who you are. Even the relationships you care most about are now draining you. All your duties just keep piling on and you’re forced to keep bearing through it. You don’t feel like the same person lately but can't pinpoint what has changed. Therapy can help untangle what's going on.
