I have worked with families for over a decade advocating for maternal/ child health and wellness. I am a trained Birth/Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Consultant and Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). Helping families through some of the toughest, yet rewarding times in their lives has deemed rewarding. I am currently assisting families that are dealing with a multitude of issues, including but not limited to relational/interpersonal, communication, transitional issues, perinatal mood disorders and attachment and bonding concerns. These areas specifically impact the family as a whole in addition to one's daily functioning.

As a maternal/child health and wellness advocate, I have participated in initiatives to make Philadelphia Hospitals baby friendly and support breast feeding. Perinatal mood disorders include depression, anxiety OCD and attachment concerns. I am currently working towards my certification as a Perinatal Mood Specialist with Postpartum Support International.

My practice focuses on the total embodiment of the family as they are transitioning to bringing a new family member home. I provide lactation services in addition to traditional therapy services in order to assist with healing of the mind, body and soul.
