"Pregnancy or newborns may bring about feelings of worry combined with increased anxiety or depression. There could be intrusive thoughts or repeated patterns of behaviors that feel like OCD that is difficult to manage alone. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and postpartum could foster mood swings, increased irritability, difficulty sleeping, sadness, and anger. It may be overwhelming at times and feel as if there is no way out. I work with parents and young adults who are new to adulting. College and work are difficult. I have an extensive and broad range of clinical experience working with parents, individuals and families."

"If you are struggling with an issue in your life and you feel "stuck", you know how hard it can be to ask for help. You may have tried therapy in the past and it had some benefit, but you are ready for a different approach. Have you ever thought, "I get what my therapist says about my anger, sadness, anxiety or trauma, but it doesn't change my pain"? You want to work through your issues because it's draining to spend so much energy keeping them contained, just to get through the day or week. Then you may want to try therapy with me. "
