You want to feel better now. You're overwhelmed and your inner critic is harder on you than anyone else, even - especially - when you're already feeling down, anxious, or like you're "not enough." You're high functioning and independent, so it's hard for others to see you're hurting inside, which gives you a lonely feeling on top of everything else. You want a healthy relationships with yourself + family, near and far. You are - whether you know it or not - a brave soul, seeking confidence, authenticity, and inner-peace. Welcome.

My practice focuses women's and maternal mental health. Through practical tools and an attuned therapeutic relationship, I can help you with stifling critical voice, distracting worries, adjustment to pregnancy or early parenthood, and/or distress about past experiences (e.g., loss, birth trauma) making it hard to be with your present baby.

I lead in our therapeutic relationship with my authentic self. I listen deeply, but I will not silently sit and nod. We will converse and process, together, will in all likelihood share some laughs (yes, even in the dark times), exploring your unique story, and finding the best tools for you.
