About Me

It can be so hard to be stuck in the cycle - bouncing from what feels like your best self to your worst self in a single day or sometimes in a matter of minutes. It’s easy to get discouraged and feel like you’re not getting anywhere. I see you, and would love to guide you through this piece of your journey. I can help you get relief and let go of the pain that holds you back from being able to feel hope and positivity. You can feel more in control of your emotions and how you respond in even the most stressful of situations. You can feel like your best self and have a deeper connection with your partner, children, friends, and family. I have a decade of experience working with individuals and families experiencing tough life circumstances and navigating challenging relationships and transitions. I am a perinatal mental health certified therapist with experience working in the healthcare system supporting individuals and families managing the unique ups and downs of pregnancy, parenting, and loss. My early experiences and my own challenges transitioning to becoming a mother are what brought me here where I enjoy supporting you throughout your journey of healing and growth. I understand the pain and unraveling that significant life events can bring up, and the importance of knowing you have support in your corner as you go through it.
