I am an experienced psychotherapist trained in assisting people work through their trauma, depression, anxiety, perinatal and postpartum issues.

Welcome! I am a psychotherapist who has been in practice for 14 years. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. I am also dedicated to helping adults and individuals cope with anxiety, depression and perinatal mental health issues. I am a certified perinatal mental health provider and have specialized training to assist women in their journey through motherhood and its complications. I am an empathic, caring clinician who utilizes evidence based practices, support, psychoeducation and sometimes humor to assist you in working through your struggles.
