I specialize in perinatal work: with families experiencing pregnancy challenges, mood disorders, family crises, traumatic deliveries, NICU babies, infertility and pregnancy loss.
Well, folks, we made it: we turned the page on 2020. (Deep exhale.) I wish it was that easy with the emotional, social and political fallout. The wake of challenges will be with us for a while. If you are struggling with personal or family issues, I’m sure the larger context has made them even more complicated. A silver lining of the 2020 storm cloud is that the importance of mental health has been more broadly recognized. I hope you find the help you are seeking. I am inspired by the effort and trust people bring to therapy. I try to match that effort and trust with positive energy and clinical expertise.

You're ready to heal whatever part of your life is ailing right now. The process of therapy allows you to not have to do it alone. To have guidance, validation, and accountability in your journey. Don't turn back now and return to the ailing, let today be the day that your life changes. We can't change our pasts, but we can change our paths and live happier and healthier lives. I strive to create a comfortable and safe environment for my clients so that they can access the vulnerable parts of themselves and grow into the versions of themselves they strive to be.

My "ideal" client is anyone who is feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, "stuck," or simply seeking guidance on how to best handle a situation. I believe that overcoming any obstacle in life starts with understanding what the problem is and then looking at alternatives to deal with the problem. This is where I can help you. When you confide in a professional and receive positive regard and feel genuinely understood and not judged - maybe for the first time in your life - you often can start to think more clearly and ideas can spring to mind for dealing with your issues.

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to suffering. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of agency in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, believing you are good enough as you are, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.
