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. 

EMDRI provide EMDR therapy, an integrated treatment approach proven to help with trauma, anxiety or old, stuck negative beliefs by reprocessing negative experiences from the past that contribute to distress today. More about EMDR can be found by clicking here. 


​Women's mental health and wellness :I help women gain tools for emotional health throughout the stages of life including adolescence, motherhood, life transitions, career stress and menopause. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, body image, work-life balance, grief and loss, relationships or difficult life transitions, I can help. 

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