In my 20 plus years of experience, I have had the privilege of helping individuals and families in a variety of settings. I strive to provide a place of acceptance in which clients can explore the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with the goal of changing negative thought patterns to facilitate lasting change.
My approach to therapy is to focus on the inherent strengths and worth of each individual while fostering a therapeutic relationship of respect and collaboration. Truthfully, I learn so much from my clients in this process. My personality and style are both positive and warm. My hope is that I convey to my clients the authentic joy that I find in my work.
I have specialized training in Perinatal Mental Health and maternal mental health, as one in seven mothers may experience a Perinatal Mood or Anxiety Disorder. Supporting Mothers as they navigate the many stages of motherhood brings me great joy. Often, talking with a professional about your stressors and concerns helps to address needs and bring more balance to life. Your health and well-being are especially important as a new parent and you deserve to take the time to invest as much in yourself as you do in those you love.
Other specialties include: assisting women in various life transitions, helping individuals integrate self-care practices while balancing the demands of life, assisting caregivers with stress, assisting young adult and college-age students as they navigate early adulthood, and assisting individuals suffering with stress, anxiety, and depression.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, swimming, going on bike rides, and going to the beach as often as possible!
