I support women and families in working through pregnancy/postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, infertility, loss, traumatic birth experiences, and parenting through a trauma-informed, person-centered lens.
Resilience and healing are fostered through empathy, connection, and understanding. I believe that growth can come from the most painful experiences. In my role as a therapist, I believe you are the expert in your own life. My job is to help you explore the resources you already have inside of you and to help you safely navigate these areas. The journey to parenthood can bring up many different emotions; stress, fear, uncertainty, unresolved pasts, self-doubt, or grief, to name a few.

Being a mom can not only burn you out, but it can trigger stuff you thought you had under wraps. Raising kids, managing family life, AND somehow finding time to take care of you is a lot to juggle. You want a calm, happy home but the things you’ve tried haven’t stuck. You don’t have to repeat history. You can spend more time enjoying your family. You can feel better in your body and mind. Being able to parent well, have a happy family life, and take care of your own mental wellness is 100 percent possible.
