Becoming the person, parent, partner, and professional you want to be can leave you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, sad, and alone. In a world where there's too much to do and too little time, finding space for yourself can seem impossible. You deserve the same level of care that you generously offer to every other aspect of your life. I provide a nurturing space where you can safely explore and understand your challenges. Whether you're managing anxiety or depression, breaking free from cycles of trauma, struggling with work-life balance, establishing boundaries, or exploring your identity, you don’t have to do it alone.
My expertise is in navigating life transitions, be it parenthood, career or relationships. I specialize in postpartum depression/ anxiety, fostering secure attachment, and processing trauma, grief & loss. We'll work together to understand your inner voices, explore past coping mechanisms that may no longer serve you, and increase connection to body and self.
I help individuals and couples bring more balance and equity to the labor of their home life as certified Fair Play facilitator; help parents build healthy attachment relationships with their children as a Circle of Security-Parenting facilitator; and provide structure and support to professionals welcoming a child as a certified RETAIN-Parental Leave Coach.
