This includes fertiliity stuggles, miscarriage /loss, pregnancy , postpartum , parenting, low sexual desire, desire discrepency in couples or other matters that may cause anxiety around sex or prevent you from feeling like a whole sexual person.
It can feel so isolating when something isn't working sexually. You may feel too embarassed to talk to the people closest to you for fear of judgement, shame, or feeling like they won't say the right thing. Even reaching out to an expert feels intimdating but you know that you can't have things continue like this for much longer. I know that it can be a challenge to talk about the most senstive, intimate topics in your life but I love helping others get to the root of the issue so they can heal and find freedom from what has felt so heavy for too long.

Offering online therapy for prenatal and postpartum women in CA. You thought being a mother would be the happiest time of your life, but you are having some difficulty adjusting to your new role. Trying to conceive, being an expectant mother, or recently giving birth has left you struggling with worries, doubts, sadness, and even guilt. Finding a balance between motherhood, your relationships, and your professional life seems impossible as you’re constantly adjusting to change. You may be finding that problems or issues you’ve faced before are re-surfacing during this life transition. This is common but seldom talked about.

As a Perinatal Mental Health Specialist, I work with infants, children, adolescents, and their families who may be experiencing difficulties with affect regulation, adjustment to life transitions, and various mood and anxiety disorders, as well as perinatal and postpartum issues for birthing parents, adoptive parents, and their partners.
Your family deserves support. Challenges that arise in childhood can impact one’s mood, how one copes with stress, and identity formation. Similar issues can arise for parents who may be experiencing this role for the first time, impacting one’s ability to bond with their children. Early intervention can support children as young as infancy to promote healthy functioning into adulthood as well as support parents who may be experiencing difficult feelings related to their own history.

I imagine you're leafing through profiles, trying to find the right fit. Sometimes it's just about taking ONE step in A direction, even if it's not the perfect one. I love working with individuals and couples managing transition (engaged couples, newlyweds, parents, grievers (both pregnancy -related and general loss), and career/school changers) as well as those feeling stuck. Leveraging my training in modalities such as CBT, DBT, and EFT, I have successfully helped clients navigate anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, substance use, parenting difficulties, relationship distress, and more - and I'd love to help you too.

I understand how your prenatal / perinatal , childhood and especially traumatic experiences can form debilitating beliefs and relating patterns which are stored unconsciously in your brain and body therefore making talk therapy alone ineffective.
First, you probably need to know this right now... that you were created to be loved! Next, in therapy, real growth and change is influenced significantly by what you feel and think about your therapist. You need to feel safe, understood, validated, cared for, and able to trust the competency and selflessness of your therapist. Please feel free to come for a free introductory meeting with me. With deep care, compassion, understanding, and respect, I help you transition from surviving to thriving in relationships and life. I specialize in broken relationships or those struggling with past trauma or abuse.

Our lives are constructed from many roles and stories. We, as human beings, are the teller of those tales. Is your narrative one, as Plato stated, flowing from "three sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge?" Is it rich in self-care, dignity, and compassion? Or, are the stories and thoughts you carry heartless, punitive, or corrosive?
