I am passionate about helping women with issues related to pregnancy and/or postpartum mental health, and I'm pursuing a rigorous certification offered through PostPartum Support international.
In C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia there is a scene with a young girl named Lucy where she hears about a heroic lion named Aslan. She learns that he brings much needed hope and peace, but he is also described as strong and fierce. This prompts Lucy to ask if the lion is “safe.” The response to her is, “No… ‘course he isn’t safe. But he is good.” Choosing to start therapy (or return again), is a lot like this exchange. It can be scary to open up your hopes, fears, shame, disappointments, or trauma. But, it is good, and if you choose to take this courageous step I would be honored to walk alongside you in your healing.

Are you a high-achieving, ambitious woman working in a corporate role or running your own business? Have you found that the demands of your career are causing you incredible anxiety, depression, and/or self-doubt? Have you experienced work-related trauma? Are you struggling to balance the demands of your personal life with your professional career? Are you looking to work with a therapist who knows first-hand what it’s like to work in corporate settings, manage a team, and/or run a business? Your career should not just pay the bills. It should also provide you with a sense of purpose and accomplishment, not emptiness and anxiety.

I have a passion for providing women postpartum support and parent education.
Thank you for visiting here. I'm a therapist with over 25 years experience helping people create change in their lives. Sometimes the change occurs in learning how to manage mood disorders, like anxiety, panic or depression. Other times the change occurs in learning new skills to improve relationships as a partner, parent or employee.

We all go through adverse life experiences that can take a toll on our emotional well-being. The stress of the past can sometimes end up following us and continuing to drive how we feel and the decisions we make. However, these hardships that we go through do not have to end up hindering our functioning and stagnating our growth. I also specialize in depression, self-esteem, anxiety, women and cultural issues. I have expertise in working with individuals who have experienced physical, emotional and/or sexual trauma or neglect during their childhood.

I have successfully worked with many different populations, including adults with substance abuse issues, individuals with developmental disabilities, children and adolescence with behavioral problems and women with a history of domestic violence.
If you can change your thoughts you can change your world. I believe that our day to day thoughts directly dictate our emotions and ultimately our decisions and actions. Whether it is childhood trauma, adult anxiety or postpartum depression, we can take captive every self-defeating thought and turn that negative narrative into a powerful and hopeful future. Regaining control over our thoughts and actions can provide such lasting peace and happiness. My focus is to thoroughly get to know my patients, my listening to and trying my best to understand their unique experiences, while working collaboratively toward agreed upon goals.

I welcome you to my practice site. If you are here at this site I make the assumption that you are secure enough to know that you deserve to feel better and have good relationships. With a comfortable match up of therapist and client, both of us work towards understanding the challenges you face, getting some clarity about what can be changed, and learning how to take action. Getting comfortable involves feeling listened to and understood by me and developing trust that I will be knowledgeable about your subject and I will be supportive and non judgmental in this therapeutic relationship.

We all deserve a space that is exclusively ours. A non-judgmental, accepting, and healing space where we can transform our minds, feelings, and experiences. A space to reflect and grow. I provide holistic therapy that is person-centered, strength-based, and trauma-informed. My approach to therapy is eclectic - I incorporate various treatment modalities and approaches into my work (mindfulness, CBT, DBT, etc.) and provide anti-oppressive, anti-racist and culturally responsive therapy. The identities you carry are seen, valued, and celebrated. I consider all aspects of your life, including the systems and environments that impact us.
