My passion for my work comes from seeing people get to know themselves better and helping them to find more meaning and satisfaction in their lives. Psychotherapy can be so many things-- a safe place to explore recent or longstanding challenges, examine options to your usual thoughts and reactions or consider important life choices. My style is warm, nonjudgmental and collaborative. Therapy with me is never a one size fits all process but one where we notice and honor your personality, values and current needs. Whether we work together in a consultation to gain information and resources regarding your issues or a deeper, long-term process, my goal is to support who you are in this moment and provide feedback and tools for helping you grow and move toward a more rewarding life.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

For the past decade, a major focus of my practice has been helping those who have experienced reproductive challenges such as mood and anxiety issues related to infertility, pregnancy and the postpartum time. I also work with those who are experiencing grief and loss, particularly pregnancy and infant loss. The challenges during the reproductive years can involve so many factors including physical, hormonal, identity and relationship changes. My background of working with individuals and couples for so many years in this area, along with additional education through Postpartum Support International and other educational opportunities has helped me to quickly identify complicating factors and help people recover from these issues. In addition to working with individuals and couples, I led a pregnancy loss group for 5 years, teach classes for professionals on perinatal mood disorders and reproductive loss and write a blog about baby loss at
