I am both Perinatal and EMDR certified.
Here is what I believe: Everyone needs an objective person to help support and guide them through life’s challenges, transitions and hurdles. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is a trusting, nonjudgmental, and compassionate relationship with your therapist; therapy should feel safe, and provide you relief. I enjoy working with people from different background to help them discover their true self and overcoming the obstacles that may obscure their journey to happiness and self-fulfillment. I utilize humanistic mindful approaches to support wellness. I have availability in evening for couples and individuals.

I specialize in anxiety, stress, grief, and maternal mental health from pregnancy through postpartum into parenting.
You want to have it “all together” but deep down you’re struggling with anxiety and feeling disconnected and like you don’t know yourself anymore. You’re feeling stuck in the same cycle and overwhelmed with all of the decisions you have to make just to survive in life when you deserve to be thriving. When your days are overflowing with caring for others it feels impossible to find time to care for yourself. Life feels like a constant juggling act, trying to balance a bunch of responsibilities and demands all at once. Your days may feel chaotic and disorganized, with a never-ending to-do list that seems impossible to tackle.

You’ve gone through pregnancy and the moment to meet your first newborn baby has arrived. As a new mom, thoughts run in your head like, “how do I take care of this baby when I can’t take care of myself,” “my body feels broken,” “I haven’t slept,” “this is how it is, so I just have to figure it out.” You feel overwhelmed and question if you’re a good mother when you go back to work. At the end of the day, you just want to feel supported and know that you’re still you as you experience being a mom. You decide what works for you and your family and not to live based on “you should do this or you’re supposed to do this.”

My training includes issues throughout the perinatal period such as shifts in identity, postpartum mood and anxiety issues, and mother-daughter dynamics that impact women in early motherhood.
Psychotherapy is a deeply personal experience that can relieve anxiety and depression, and foster authentic connection and meaning in our lives. In my work for 20 years now as a psychologist and author, I remain committed and passionate about helping clients uncover early dynamics that still seem to interfere with securing the kind of relationships and positive feelings about ourselves that we all strive for. I often find myself in the role of gently reminding clients about the parts of themselves that have temporarily gone underground, and are vital to their creativity and well-being.

Pregnancy, Prenatal, Postpartum Therapists

What are the most effective ways to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns?

The most effective way to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns is by finding a therapist who has prior experience helping other patients overcome the challenge being faced. For example, a marriage and family therapist may have experience helping couples adjust to their new relationship dynamic. An anxiety specialist may have experience helping with phobias or illness anxiety related to the child’s health. A depression specialist may have experience treating postpartum depression.

When should I seek treatment for prenatal or postpartum concerns?

Pregnancy and the postpartum period involve intense physical and mental changes; a degree of upset and instability is normal. However, if these changes impair daily functioning, it may be time to seek help. This distinction is pertinent for postpartum depression: A period of teariness, irritability, and distress is difficult but normal in the one to two weeks after childbirth (sometimes called the “baby blues.”) But if feelings of sadness and hopelessness persist beyond that period, the person should seek treatment.

How do I manage worries during pregnancy or the postnatal period?

A therapist can help patients develop the tools they need to manage anxieties during or after pregnancy. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help people identify and reframe harmful patterns of thought, and change their behaviors. Other techniques and skills can allow people to develop acceptance, psychological flexibility, self-compassion, communication skills, and more.

Are there specific medications for postpartum depression?

In 2019, the FDA approved the first medication designed to treat postpartum depression. The medication is called brexanolone and is delivered intravenously by a medical professional over the course of a few days. However, typical antidepressants, which are more accessible, can also treat postpartum depression. The disorder is often best treated through a combination of medication and therapy.
