I specialize in OCD/anxiety disorders & work with college students, perinatal women, teens (14+), & other adults experiencing relentless, unwanted thoughts & distressing anxiety.
When our own thoughts/images, body sensations, and feelings cause us significant anxiety, life feels like a constant roller coaster ride. Thoughts that we might hurt someone can be all the more distressing. To cope, we may try distracting ourselves, avoiding situations, or doing rituals. These behaviors are like feeding a hungry monster that continues growing bigger and stronger. The OCD/anxiety cycle is set in motion and probably feels out of your control. Until treated, it can manifest, is time-consuming, and, let’s face it, exhausting.

I also have training in perinatal mental health, specifically for anxiety and OCD.
We are likely a good fit if you experience intrusive thoughts, are a perfectionist to a fault, spend hours on WebMD, live in fear that your child will get hurt, need constant reassurance that things will be OK, experience social anxiety, or spend more time in your own head than you would like to. Maybe you have started to avoid things that make you uncomfortable. The more we avoid, the smaller our world becomes, and the things that once brought us joy and fulfillment have vanished from most of our waking hours.

Our practice specializes in perinatal mental health (pre-conception through postpartum , adoption, infertility), trauma, stress, anxiety, and OCD; but sees teens, individuals, and couples with a variety of concerns.
You’re at your limit. No, you’re PAST your limit. You’re running on empty. You feel like you’re totally just breaking. You don't really have time for therapy, but things just aren't getting better. Maybe no one seems to understand how you feel. Things are really REALLY freaking hard right now. But they don’t have to stay that way any longer. Is therapy hard? YUP, for sure. But not as hard as continuing to live with the way things are now. You’re been suffering for too long. You deserve to heal and be well. You deserve to leave this behind you and enjoy your life. You deserve to feel like YOU.

I work with adults who are struggling with relationships, anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting challenges, and changes related to the perinatal (pre, during, post pregnancy ) phase of a woman's life.
If you are looking for clarity, increased self-awareness and acceptance around issues related to relationships and couples, I'm here to help. Often times, people come in wanting to improve their romantic, family or friend relationships, and therapy is just one tool to work through the barriers that prevent us from achieving healthy connections. I also work closely with women in the perinatal period of life who are navigating a variety of emotions. Therapy is a great space to explore these issues, uncover your unique strengths and learn new skills to improve your life and relationships.

Getting to this point in considering therapy takes a lot of courage! It can be a lot to try to find the therapist that is right for you. I get it, I’ve been in that seat, too. But it’s also a lot to keep living and feeling the way you're feeling right now. So let’s make some adjustments and start you on your way to feeling and living better. Spoiler alert: no therapist has all the answers. Instead, let's find the answers together. I'm here to guide you along your path, not tell you where to go. Therapy is us working together.

Therapy is a place for you to name areas of pain, a place to feel without judgment, and a place to reclaim what is yours. Shame is the source of so much of this pain and judgment, convincing you that you are broken. Shame is often so intertwined with sexuality because of the societal silence around the topic. Perhaps sex is painful, perhaps you are more aware of others desires than your own, perhaps you feel empty from running on fumes and enjoyment is the last thing on your mind. Whatever the reason, engaging your sexual health can help overall wellness, and ultimately be the way back into relationship with yourself!

Accepting new clients, M-F 9-2 (telehealth only). My particular focus is working with neurodivergent adults, but my practice is open to all people seeking help with anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, stress, life changes, and/or self-esteem. When the effort to manage on your own becomes too much, professional guidance can help move the process along more efficiently. Many people benefit tremendously from having a sounding board, someone who can help you see your situation from other angles. Therapy takes this one step further, providing research-based interventions that are tailored to your unique situation and personality.

A large part of my practice is inclusive of conducting (neuro)psychological evaluations. Typical presenting problems include concerns about attention/ADHD, learning, trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, memory, disruptive behavior, hyperactivity, social interactions/Autism, dementia, neurobehavioral disorders, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive impairments among others. Evaluations assist with diagnosing, offering treatment recommendations, noting progress and current level of functioning, assisting with getting school-related help, recommendations for guardianship, etc. I also offer therapeutic services. I believe that developing a deeper understanding of oneself is important so individuals can become free to embrace their inner strengths, solidify their belief systems, and reach their greatest potential.

From the outside, you seem to have it all together. You work really hard on the details, after all, you are responsible for everyone and everything. But you can’t shake the voice inside your head which screams you’re failing. Even though you put everyone’s needs in front of your own, you feel like you’re falling short as a mom. You can’t even remember what your hobbies are, let alone what really makes you happy. You’ve had enough, you don’t think you can keep holding it together.

Pregnancy, Prenatal, Postpartum Therapists

What are the most effective ways to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns?

The most effective way to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns is by finding a therapist who has prior experience helping other patients overcome the challenge being faced. For example, a marriage and family therapist may have experience helping couples adjust to their new relationship dynamic. An anxiety specialist may have experience helping with phobias or illness anxiety related to the child’s health. A depression specialist may have experience treating postpartum depression.

When should I seek treatment for prenatal or postpartum concerns?

Pregnancy and the postpartum period involve intense physical and mental changes; a degree of upset and instability is normal. However, if these changes impair daily functioning, it may be time to seek help. This distinction is pertinent for postpartum depression: A period of teariness, irritability, and distress is difficult but normal in the one to two weeks after childbirth (sometimes called the “baby blues.”) But if feelings of sadness and hopelessness persist beyond that period, the person should seek treatment.

How do I manage worries during pregnancy or the postnatal period?

A therapist can help patients develop the tools they need to manage anxieties during or after pregnancy. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help people identify and reframe harmful patterns of thought, and change their behaviors. Other techniques and skills can allow people to develop acceptance, psychological flexibility, self-compassion, communication skills, and more.

Are there specific medications for postpartum depression?

In 2019, the FDA approved the first medication designed to treat postpartum depression. The medication is called brexanolone and is delivered intravenously by a medical professional over the course of a few days. However, typical antidepressants, which are more accessible, can also treat postpartum depression. The disorder is often best treated through a combination of medication and therapy.
