I am a mental health therapist serving the Columbus, Ohio area and conveniently located just south of 270 in Worthington. I specialize in helping women and moms overcome postpartum depression and anxiety, adjust to new motherhood and heal from trauma and addiction. If you are a new mom who is nursing or you feel like leaving your baby at home will cause you more stress, please feel free to bring your baby along. 

Mental Health for Moms: As a mom myself I have a passion for helping other mothers who might experience a difficult period of adjustment or just need support through this joyous and stressful roller-coaster time of life . I have experience helping moms through infertility, pregnancy, the postpartum period, grief/loss and birth trauma. For the 1 in 7 who will experience a postpartum mood or anxiety disorder, I am experienced and trained in perinatal and postpartum mental health through Postpartum Support International. 

​​​No life is perfect. But you can learn to cherish the one you have.
