As a reproductive mental health counselor and art therapist, I believe that everyone deserves to be heard, treated with compassion, and have a space where they feel safe
and comfortable. I view therapy as a collaborative process; where together we look at the challenges impacting you or your relationships. Together, I will support your development of new strategies and ways of feeling more fulfilled in your relationships and life. I'm trained in both art therapy and traditional talk therapy and can use a combination of both or one to help you reach your desired goals.
You are brave and strong for seeking help. I look forward to hearing from you!
EXPERIENCE and APPROACH
My therapeutic lens is trauma-informed, person-centered, attachment theory and strength-based. I'm LGBTQ+ affirming provider. I have extensive experience working with individuals and families that have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, grief and loss in outpatient and in-home settings. I also worked in a therapeutic school for children and teens that struggled with emotional and behavioral challenges. Following the birth of my son, I transitioned in to private practice. I've expanded my clinical focus to include supporting pregnant and post postpartum caregivers; helping new parents adjust to parenthood as new challenges can occur when expanding your family. If you are pregnant or a parent who is feeling sad, isolated, angry, constantly worried, fatigued, scared, and/or trouble sleeping, you are not alone. Therapeutic services as well as connecting with supports greatly increase hope and can alleviate stresses.
For additional resources for pregnancy and postpartum:
You'll find me in the woods or park with my curious, high energy son; enjoying a run or yoga, and spending time with my husband and my very old beautiful cat.
