"Did you know that 1 in 5 women experience some form of anxiety and depression during pregnancy and even two years after their baby is born? Many times life is different than we expected and this is especially true when a baby comes into the family. For many caregivers, this time is filled with stress, sadness, worry, guilt, and shame. The hardest part of all can be having to constantly pretend that you are fine. If this sounds like you, know that you are not alone and with the right help you can get well."

"**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I believe wellness is an ongoing journey that is complicated, scary, exciting, and has no specific road. In fact, I believe wellness is a journey that has unexpected twists and turns, where we encounter moments of growth, regression, or stalling. My hope is to join you in those tougher moments, and give you the space to set down all the heavy baggage you might be carrying and work with you to unpack what is weighing you down. I bring my genuine, quirky self to therapy and believe that as tough as it can be, there is plenty of space reserved for laughs and celebration."

"How often have we heard? Boy meets girl. They soon realize they love each other, get married, and live happily ever after. But does that really happen? How long before boy and girl start fighting and end up divorced? Is there hope for 'happily ever after' after all the fights, tears, and fears? Yes. Marriage is hard work and most couples struggle day in and out to stay together. You don't have to do it alone. I specialize in helping couples re-capture that love and friendship that brought them together so they can have true happy ever afters."
