You are tired of fighting, having to explain yourself, being disappointed, and grieving the life you planned as a child. Parenting is one of the HARDEST and most fulfilling experiences that one can have in this lifetime, but it can sometimes feel like a constant battle. If you toss in co- parenting with an ex-partner, trying to integrate a new partner into your "ready-made" family, and/or being a caregiver to a family member due to unfavorable circumstances, things get a lot more complicated. Being the child in these situations, can be even harder to navigate because everything can feel so unstable. All of it feels exhausting!

My work is focused on creating space for you to feel connected, cared for, and curious so that together we can explore who you are. Many times clients come to counseling because there is a gap between what they have and what they want, or more often who they are and who they want to be. Any client looking for greater insight into who they are and what they want is a great fit for me. I especially love working with new moms and parents as they start to build their identity as a parent .

I offer parenting education, support for women, and therapy for both.
What is stopping you from being who you want to be? Maybe you're feeling disconnected from your family, or even yourself. Maybe you're feeling anxiety or guilt when setting boundaries. Maybe the tantrums are out of control. Or maybe you're fatigued from simply surviving a pandemic. Maybe, as a woman, you've just lost sight of yourself. Or sometimes, our own experiences interfere with doing what we know we should do as parents and partners. Whatever the reason, there is help. I want to work together with you to navigate your roadblocks, increase connection and confidence, and develop the coping skills to create a new path!

I seriously understand how scary change can be. You are the only person who can decide when it's time to take control of your own mental health. Think about what it would feel like to truly, LAUGH, again. I am a professional mental health provider with profound experience in working with those seeking change. Change in your personal life. Change in your relationships with others. Change in how you parent . Change in understanding that you have the tools/power to reduce your own anxiety/depression. Change that you can choose not to carry your trauma forward.

Collaborative parent work is crucial to resolving child/family issues.
Do you survive or thrive? Your relationship with yourself is reflected in relationships with family, friends, colleagues, professional life and the world around you. How do you seek, expect, and provide attunement to yourself and important others? Inter-generational relational templates play a part in the degree to which we survive or thrive. Attachment and relational patterns meant to gain closeness can mean one feels “seen”/accepted or disappointed/rejected, and etc… You can learn to listen to yourself with an open-minded curiosity, in order to identify your relational patterns and how they support or hinder you.

People seek therapy for variety of reasons, ranging from difficulties with a specific life event or a general pursuit for greater purpose and connectedness. Psychotherapy offers an arena for self exploration unlike any other and can prove to be a profoundly moving experience. I work with individuals affected by trauma, difficulties in relationships, depression/post-partum depression, infertility, adoption, parenting , struggles in cultural adaptation and immigration, identity, self-esteem, sexuality, etc. Often I find that the most meaningful change comes from those who are open and willing to engage in the journey. The change you seek comes from you and will be our guiding force.

I see a diverse range of adult clients seeking therapy for a variety of reasons, but I specialize in neurodivergence, chronic illness, feminist issues, and parenting .
The heart of my practice is connection. White supremacy, cisheteropatriarchy, and capitalism are just some of the forces that attempt to sever our relationship with ourselves. We’re asked to mute our differences, to make sure we don’t inconvenience or disrupt anyone with our needs, and we’re forced to give up pieces of ourselves to do it. Under these conditions, it can be terrifying to allow yourself the grace of being human in all of your messy glory, much less to share yourself authentically with others. I want to encourage you to revive that connection and take up the space you deserve.
