About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified perinatal mental health therapist devoted to assisting individuals in the perinatal period that encounter any mood or anxiety symptoms.

I have been in the world of perinatal mental health for over ten years. This time in life is very life-changing and that can bring many things(good and bad) to the surface. I am in private practice to help individuals process any stressors or challenges along the way. By working together, the goal is to empower you to be able to handle future stressors as well. I have worked with individuals with high risk pregnancies, fetal anomalies, NICU stays, birth trauma, perinatal/infant loss, birth PTSD, postpartum depression and anxiety to name a few. I myself experienced several of these things and enjoy helping people find inner strength they maybe did not even know they had.
