About

Are you going through a major change such as leaving home, working through relationship struggles, becoming new parents, fertility challenges, balancing home and work life, loss of a loved one or job or dealing with illness? Has your comfort zone been pulled out from under you? These changes can feel like a wave knocked you down. You have come to the right place if you want compassionate, yet straightforward support. Working together, we will focus on your goals, find solutions and help to get you feeling on track, healthy and equipped with new coping tools.
I have many years of experience helping women and couples with depression and anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum, which occurs in one out of five women and one in ten men. It's not your fault. It can feel overwhelming. I can help you access strengths and self-care skills to feel like yourself again.
What makes my practice unique is my background as a Nurse Practitioner. I am knowledgeable about the ways in which hormonal changes,pain, illness and disability can effect wellbeing and mood. I have many years of experience helping people to see possibilities, navigate the healthcare system, and to make changes to achieve health and peace of mind.
