I specialize in supporting new and expecting families experiencing prenatal/postpartum depression and anxiety, relationship and attachment issues, birth trauma , and loss. The journey into motherhood invites us to experience intense love and joy, but it also touches our most raw and vulnerable parts. We may experience worries of not being good enough or fears of losing our identity. I understand how difficult it can be to take time for yourself when you feel overwhelmed and sleep deprived. But I also know that taking the time now to increase self-awareness can move you beyond survival and transform your experience of motherhood.

I specialize in issues of anxiety, depression, intergenerational trauma , and eating disorders.
Life is filled with transitions, changes, growth, and honestly sometimes, even regressions. But that is okay. And even better, you do NOT have to go it alone. Let me walk through the darkness with you and we can find the way out together. Let me help you discover your strengths. Let me guide you getting your life back on track. Therapy does not have to be scary. Therapy does not have to be you lying on a couch and me taking notes at you. Therapy also does not have to be all talk for an hour. We can draw, we can take a walk, we can cry, we can laugh, we can even meet virtually! Therapy with me will be about you and your needs.

Be able and confident to use real tools helping to bring ease in your life and get your world on track. There is help for suffering, PTSD , anxiety, etc. that does not always involve having to trench up the past, but rather, can work right now to bring relief. Are you hurting or stuck? Often our past laid down unconscious survival mechanisms that are at work today that are no longer useful. We can work together to discover these and then insert a new and more useful tool that can allow more ease in your world. I help you identify current needs are so that these can be supported.

I work with adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+ concerns, disassociation and trauma , and with couples and families facing conflicted relationships.
Our experiences form an unconscious ‘blueprint’, which shapes our beliefs and aspirations, but also the fears and challenges we face. Gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and the patterns that run your life allows you the freedom to make new choices and respond differently, transforming your relationships with yourself and others. In our work together, I will support you on your journey towards self-awareness that can lead to a profound change. My therapeutic approach is warm, direct and authentic. I believe feeling safe, accepted and heard are all critical elements for therapy to succeed.

As a clinician who practices a strength-based approach to assessment, strategies and treatment, I love helping people to re-connect with their own happiness! My clinical expertise is in combining specialized clinical knowledge and skills in the service of resolving anxiety. My unique approach incorporates Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness. I find that many people diagnosed with long-standing clinical depression and anxiety are often suffering from the negative impact of self-criticism, relationship discord, past trauma , or achievement fatigue, and that once these are addressed, their symptoms subside.

I love helping people of all ages who struggle with social skills, who have suffered from trauma /loss/addiction, or who are affected by people in their lives who struggle with addiction.
Finding a therapist is hard! It doesn't help that there are so many to choose from. I think the most important part is actually liking the person you are talking to. Take a look at my page (and website), and if you think we may be a good fit, I encourage you to call me for a free 15 minute consultation. If we end up working together, I will do my best to find which methods align with you so that I can help you get to the place you want to be.
