About

Are you a lesbian couple in the process of deciding to become parents? Are you an individual seeking support while you and your partner are thinking about beginning a family? There are unique decisions that you may be currently facing such as, pregnancy or adoption, which partner will become pregnant, and how will both partners feel involved as parents. It is important for you to have a safe space to explore these questions. There are feelings that accompany the decisions that you are making, and partners may feel differently. This sometimes challenges the connection between you.
I help individuals and couples stay connected during this time. I support you in understanding your own feelings and expressing yourself. When working with both partners, I facilitate clearer communication so that each person feels heard by the other.
I have experience working with lesbian individuals and couples from decision-making to pregnancy to birth and beyond.
