Motherhood can be such a rich and rewarding yet difficult and at times totally overwhelming experience. It is a life-changing transformation to become a mother, and even with all of the love and joy that motherhood can bring, it can also bring with it some really hard emotions: am I doing this right? Am I doing enough? Am I enough? There's even the chance you may be grieving the person you used to be and the life you used to live before your identity became "mama." Motherhood is a beautiful, messy and complicated journey, but you don't have to feel lost or alone or dissatisfied in your new role.

I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds. Each individual brings new and different elements to culturally reoccuring problems. Our work together usually enriches us both. As a CBT therapist, I believe the value of changing thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. These strategies are especially effective for anxiety, depression, addictions, anger and interpersonal interactions. I am also an advocate for personal choice and self care. So while changing thoughts and attitudes is helpful, the client decides which thoughts and attitudes they want to change. Finally, I supplement CBT with practical strategies for relationships, healthy lifestyles, relaxation, problem solving and general coping.

Not accepting new clients (Mar 2021). Depression, anxiety, grief, life changes don't take a break as we also deal with the added stresses of how Covid-19 has affected our daily lives. I believe everyone strives for growth, and that we all have resilience, but when feeling overwhelmed or emotionally hurt, it can be hard to find that resilience. And that's also when we have the greatest capacity for change. Something is motivating you to seek help; whatever is it, you don’t have to go it alone. I provide an emotionally safe, caring, and non-judgmental space where we can work together to find your unique path forward.

I believe that most behavioral/ emotional problems have a common origin which is the failure to express true emotions and feelings. Individuals learn early on that which is acceptable and that which is not. As we push away feelings, and deny parts of who we are, these feelings don't simply disappear; instead, they remain hidden, and continue to influence behavior in unpredictable and negative ways. Because of this commonality in most problems, I welcome people who have problems with anxiety, depression,eating disorders, relationship problems, sexual concerns,and addictive behaviors.
