I work with clients who want a more collaborative approach. I tend to be more conversational and laid back. I am also very patient and will respect your timeframe. Not everyone wants to address the hard parts right away. I enjoy working with clients who are consistent and put in the work. I work with trauma/PTSD, high conflict divorce, children and adolescents, families, and couples.

I understand that the road to parenthood does not always go as planned. It may include difficulty trying to conceive, pregnancy and/or birth complications, pregnancy loss, or rough postpartum periods. It can bring up some unexpected feelings like crying frequently, feeling overwhelmed and depressed, feeling disconnected, feelings of guilt/blame, having scary thoughts, lack of support, relational challenges and general difficulties with adjustment to pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum periods.

I believe that receiving therapy should no longer be taboo. Confiding in others and receiving professional help is something we all do in many facets of our life. Most of us see a doctor or go get our car fixed when we have issues with our physical health or a tire is loose, so why not see a therapist to help improve our mental health?

Learning why we think, feel, and act the way we do is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. From there, we gain the ability to adjust, grow, connect, and show up in the world as our most authentic selves. In addition to the listed disorders I treat, I love working with women's issues, relationship issues, phase of life issues, religious trauma, and the LGBTQ+ population.
