Transitioning to parenthood and managing emotions postpartum can be difficult. As a perinatal therapist, my goal is to provide a safe space where you can process these major life changes, understand past experiences that are negatively impacting your present self and identify coping skills. I use a trauma informed approach that is strengths based. I have the Perinatal Mental Health Certification through Postpartum Support International. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I have experience working with individuals at every stage of the reproductive journey; from trying to conceive with infertility, having preterm babies, traumatic births, miscarriages and postpartum depression/anxiety. My prior experience as a NICU social worker allowed me to support babies and parents during vulnerable moments.
I am a mixed Latina, with Type 1 Diabetes, and I understand how having intersectional identities and navigating the healthcare system can be difficult. Creating an inclusive space where you feel empowered during your therapeutic process is at my forefront. I would be honored to be apart of your perinatal journey.
