You feel irritable and wonder whether you will ever be your old self again. You may question whether you are doing enough, are coping with a loss, or resent your partner for not helping. When you thought about starting a family, this is not quite what you expected. Nothing prepares us for motherhood, or the other curveballs life throws. Since 2005, I have met many women who think everyone else has it all together. The good news is that you can get relief from feeling overwhelmed. Imagine snapping less at people, accepting yourself, and getting through long days with more peace.

My approach combines psychotherapy and the use of experiential therapy as a means of building communication, trust, and decision-making through individual and family treatment.

I am trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) to help couples to reconnect; trained in perinatal mental health to help women in their life transitions; hold a certificate in Prepare/Enrich to help premarital couples to strengthen their relationship skills; and completed Gottman Level One training to help couples to communicate more effectively.
I provide a warm and nonjudgmental atmosphere so you will have a safe place to let your guard down and explore. You will be heard. You may be experiencing a "lost at sea" moment - which can be expressed in many shades of sadness,worries, or even anger. These moments can be circumstantial, or perhaps, you just can't seem to stop yourself from revisiting old challenges. We will identify that very pattern you get stuck and get to the core of the issues so you can start to heal and reach your optimal emotional well being.
