I work with women struggling with maternal mental health challenges such as prenatal or postpartum depression and anxiety.
At times life can become overwhelming due to life transitions, relationship challenges, depression, or anxiety. I believe that life's struggles become more bearable when they can be held and explored in a safe therapeutic environment. My approach is warm and comprehensive, based in respect and genuine caring. In our work together, I will engage in an exploratory journey with you to gain insight into both your conscious and unconscious feelings and patterns. My hope is that through the therapeutic process you will find greater relief from suffering, allowing for healing and growth in your inner life and outer relationships.

I also specialize in the prenatal and postpartum period, counseling women and their partners who are struggling with infertility, a physically or emotionally challenging pregnancy , a difficult postpartum transition, or loss of a baby.
I have always been attracted to both ends of life's spectrum, birth and death. My work centers around the grief we experience in life, whether over the death of someone we love, the loss of a relationship, or an ending in a chapter of our lives. Our work together is based on a mindful, cognitive behavioral approach, as we gently explore the connection between your emotions and the thoughts behind them. I help you process your grief the way you need to do it and guide you as you find your way back to yourself.

Therapy is a place where you can share things that may have only previously existed in your mind. Saying them out loud can be powerful and helpful for making change. Feelings of depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, fear, or seeming "stuck" do not have to be your norm. I have a specialization in perinatal mood disorders. Transition to parenthood is full of nuance and duality. I feel passionately about providing support for all stages of this journey including pregnancy loss, fertility issues, first time pregnancy , perinatal mood disorders (depression, anxiety etc), and first time parenting.

I completed the Perinatal Mood Disorders, Components of Care training through PSI.
As humans, our emotional and relational states are ever-changing. We cycle through seasons of ease, difficulty, and everything in-between. Seeking therapy creates an opportunity to increase your awareness, strengthen coping skills, and grow in a way that is in alignment with YOUR truth. I believe that my clients hold the answers to their questions and challenges. As a therapist, my job is to create a safe, non-judgemental space for my clients to feel seen and heard. I listen to offer support and perspective, allowing them space to discover their own answers and facilitate lasting change.

As a Certified Perinatal Therapist (PMH-C), I specialize in the treatment of pregnant and postpartum parents.
There are changes in a one’s life that can be overwhelming or difficult to manage. Some life transitions for teens and adults may be so overpowering that it can lead to increased stress, depression, anxiety, feelings of guilt, irritability/anger, grief, and loneliness/isolation. These emotions also come into play on the path to parenthood which is full of surprises. Pregnancy , infertility, loss and becoming a parent can be different than expected. It can bring up unexpected feelings like crying frequently, feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, feelings of guilt/blame, and difficulties with adjustment to pregnancy or postpartum period.

Are you finding it is hard to stay focused and take care of yourself while taking care of others? Perhaps you are navigating health challenges, chronic illness, chronic pain or are going through the process of pregnancy to postpartum . All of these experiences can really increase anxiety making daily tasks and responsibilities all that much harder to achieve. You put on a brave face so everyone thinks you have it all together & that you're fine, but that's not true. In fact, keeping up the façade that everything is great is leaving you feeling exhausted & you are ready for a change.

I enjoy supporting women and couples through pregnancy , birth, and the parenting journey.
There are many reasons people seek therapy. Most likely, you're here because you're feeling out of balance in some aspect of your life. You may be looking for better ways to cope with depression or anxiety, change patterns that lead to unhealthy behaviors or relationships, or heal from a difficult or traumatic experience. Therapy can help you gain insight about yourself, increase your sense of confidence, or help you explore a new life path with courage and intention. My hope is to provide support, tools, and encouragement to help you find greater balance, authenticity, and overall well-being.

I treat individuals and couples dealing with some of the more common issues people encounter in their sex lives: lack of desire, mismatched desire, sexual or pelvic pain; orgasm issues; erection and ejaculation issues; problems secondary to pregnancy and the postpartum period.
I believe that everybody has the right to a safe, satisfying and pleasurable sex life. I also believe that most people have the answers they need to resolve, or improve their issues, somewhere inside them. I am there to help you uncover those answers in a safe, caring and compassionate way. I believe deeply in treating the whole person.

Infertility, surrogate motherhood, adoption, pregnancy and postpartum are areas of great interest to me.
Mindfulness, empowerment, self awareness, intention, balance, harmony and unreasonable joy - what are these concepts and how do you apply them to yourself and others to have a life that you love? In a safe and supportive environment uncover conscious and unconscious patterns that help or hind you and your relationships. Together we explore the human condition, how there is a natural yearning to understrand what it is all about and come closer to living your life based on your helping and healing truths. All this can cultivate the best within yourself and those around you.

What type of Ventura mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ventura?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
