I believe therapy is a way for one to become a better version of themselves while taking the steps to live a more fulfilling and authentic life. A collaborative approach will help you feel therapy isn’t a one sided relationship because we will walk side by side together. You will be able to make the necessary changes to have a life worth living, while learning to accept yourself the way you are. Throughout my experience as a therapist I have supported my clients in healing and understand their challenges while utilizing skills to manage those difficult times.

Have you had depression and/or anxiety symptoms during pregnancy or one year postpartum? Perinatal mood disorders can feel isolating and confusing. I have a passion for working with pregnant women and mothers. Motherhood comes with its own unique set of challenges such as loss of one’s identity, work life balance, isolation, and guilt. I recognize how hard it can be to feel the pressure of being the "perfect" mother. Often times women do not share their personal struggles about motherhood for fear of ridicule. I create a judgement-free space where you can speak openly about their experiences.

Finding yourself in deep personal distress may be an indicator that you're wanting (and ready for) change. A little exploration and understanding often improves your sense of self, which in turn, can deeply effect your work, play, relationships, and outlook on life. Seeking assistance with the process is a common human need and will often catalyze it. It begins by recognizing and honoring the signals of distress and understanding what may fuel them.

Personally, I know how difficult it was for me to get out of bed when suffering from depression and anxiety and to go about the everyday when concerned about having another panic attack. I know how valuable it was for me to have someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me or make me feel guilty about being exactly where I was at the time. The idea of "you should be fine", or "you have no reason to be anxious or depressed" is hurtful and doesn't help.

Sometimes I feel lonely in a crowd, even in a crowd of my friends. Sometimes I feel like nothing I do will ever be good enough. Sometimes when I walk into a room, I try to avoid eye contact for fear that I will be seen, yet deep inside, all I want is for someone to actually see me. Does this describe you? If so, you are not the only one. A lot of people feel this way, especially those who have experienced difficult childhoods. No matter how successful they may appear on the outside, it's hard to shake the "I'm not enough feeling." Can you relate?
