Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

**NOW ACCEPTING AETNA INSURANCE. It's so hard on our bodies and minds to be pregnant and deliver yet we're expected to carry on with our lives like usual. People that don't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders just can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt because we think we should be grateful. But it's unlike any other journey we wilI face. Sharing our bodies with another human is hard, being a new mom is hard, and this big change is hard! You are not alone.

I have over 14 years of experience using these approaches working with individuals of all ages dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, chronic illnesses and transitions at all stages of life.

As your therapist, I will not be able to solve your problems for you. Actually, I would not want to even if I could. I do not presume that I have answers to your problems, or that my way is the best or only way. I fully believe that you have the answers you need within you, we just need to uncover them.
