About

I am an EMDR certified, women centered therapist who specializes in maternal mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder. I teach women to take care of themselves first so they can better care for others. Trained during my work at The Postpartum Stress Center, I treat women who struggle with trauma, postpartum adjustment, infertility, birth trauma, infant loss/miscarriage and adoption struggles. We strengthen the relationship to self, build a sense of emotional safety with others. We will shift the lens on the mommy myths, cultural expectations and perfectionistic standards which can cause overwhelm and shame.
I use a de-pathologizing, approach; Instead of asking "what's your diagnosis?", I ask, "what happened to you?" I believe that all behavior is adaptive and "symptoms" arise from a combination of genetic, environment, social and cultural factors. Once we examine and dismantle a sense of shame and build a sense of self, healing can begin!
Feeling lost? Like a bad mom? You are not alone! 1 in 3 moms will eventually struggle with PMADs. Here you will find a soft place to fall, learn to own and accept your past and present story so that you can build a future template for healing. The key thing in dealing with postpartum struggles and PTSD is with the right help you WILL feel better!
