About

I am fascinated by the affects of attachment and bonding on interpersonal relationships and have a deep commitment to helping people articulate and address the core issues with which they struggle. I am currently working towards my PMH-C (Perinatal Mental Health Certification), as I am passionate about supporting women and families experiencing fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, pregnancy/infant loss, TFMR, grief, adoption, and parenting. I am a a mom who struggled with postpartum anxiety and OCD with both of my pregnancies, so I know firsthand how shameful and isolating these experiences can be.
I takes a compassion-based approach to foster understanding, safety, and hope. I have extensive experience in working with diverse populations and welcome individuals of every background into therapy. The approach I take with individuals, couples, and families is based on Attachment Theory and Emotionally-Focused Therapy.
I provides a warm and calming presence that will help you feel safe to be yourself in your most authentic form. You can trust that I will be honest and direct when needed while maintaining a supportive and compassionate stance. I have the ability to lean into moments when necessary to foster positive changes in your life.
