I work with variety of issues ranging from depression to anxiety and relationship struggles. I have specialized training in postpartum disorders, adjustment to parenting, pregnancy and infant loss, and fertility challenges. I approach this work with empathy and practical tools and strive to provide a place of warmth and support for my clients.

I believe that you should feel comfortable with your therapist. The process can be scary, joyful, painful, or wonderfully exhilarating, and I strive to provide a warm, accepting atmosphere in which you can undertake this work. If you feel comfortable, you will feel more hopeful and ready for change. We will work together to make the changes you need.

Relationships are key to understanding who we are. From birth to the present, our past relationships affect our current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As we look into the past to gain understanding, we will work together to target the thoughts and behaviors that are causing you difficulty right now.
