"People rarely talk openly about the realities of pregnancy, fertility challenges, adoption, and parenting. No matter how prepared to grow your family you felt, you now feel painfully aware of how little you can know and how challenging the transitions can be. You believe that everyone judges you, and, let’s face it, you judge yourself. You compare yourself to people on social media, in articles, and around you. You often feel a swell of emotions – happiness, shame, love, regret, hope – all at the same time. And you’re not sure where to turn for real, honest support."

Often, my clients come in and report that they tolerated relationship conflict, depression, or anxiety for years and after feeling significant relief in a short amount of time, wish they had come sooner. Together, we look at the aspects of their lives that are not working. Then, we identify strategies to make impactful changes.

"***Currently accepting new clients*** Stepping into the process of counseling takes courage, vulnerability, creativity, and a willingness to risk mistakes and failure. It requires the use of one’s whole self—body, mind, emotion and spirit. You need support and feedback from trusted relationships, because this process is not a one-time goal but a lifelong journey. Finding a trusted counselor can be one such support as you do the work of excavating who you really are from beneath the confusing and toxic layers of culture, religion, family messages, trauma, and unhealthy beliefs about yourself and others.
