I see people who are navigating fertility treatments, and individuals and couples during pregnancy and postpartum.
Life does not proceed as we each envision it. It can be unexpected, messy, complicated, disappointing, tragic, and challenging. In countless ways we strive and struggle. We can feel ourselves to be adrift. Yet we are connected, radically interdependent. Even so, we all have our own perspectives on life and our struggles. We each are tethered to our environment, our social roles, cultural identities, interpersonal, historical, professional experiences, and so on. Through exploring this web, and the various vantage points that the web offers, a unique therapeutic process emerges for each person.

Hi! I'm Jenn. I specialize in Maternal Mental Health and in helping women navigate their 20's/30's. Many of my clients feel burdened by the expectations of others, overwhelmed by school/work/life balance or unsatisfied in relationships. Some wonder about the right time to start a family, others have experienced a challenging and emotional road trying to start their family. Mothers I work with tell me they feel they've lost themselves in caring for their growing family, they've lost their connection with those close to them, and often times their symptoms of Perinatal Depression or Anxiety are sucking the joy out of motherhood.

No matter how rewarding, being a parent can be extremely difficult. And amidst a global pandemic, support may be limited and anxieties high. Even in "normal" times, we can struggle to balance our needs with those of our children, to figure out how to discipline in a loving and effective way, and to help our kids develop and thrive. Through exploring one’s own childhood and relationships, a parent can better understand challenges surfacing around parenting, and achieve greater clarity and ownership in parenting decisions. My therapeutic approach helps parents work through challenges mindfully, with love and with confidence.

Online sessions are available now. I recognize that there are fears and anxieties around Covid-19 and how it has changed the way we live in our world. School and work have looked very different for many this past year. Maybe you're feeling nervous about running your normal errands around town; events and social gatherings are cancelled, and isolation from loved ones brings sadness and grief. Feeling scared and anxious in a time of crisis is normal, and your brain is only doing what it is supposed to do - figuring out how to keep you safe from harm. It's ok if you're not sure how to manage these changes, or if you feel overwhelmed.
