My Approach to Helping

*Trauma-Informed Specialty EMDR Certified*

I have 2 primary practice specialties, serving both men and women:

*One of my passions is helping women and their families through the life cycle transitions of fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, and perimenopause. I also help womencouples through perinatal loss (miscarriage, stillbirth, etc.). Support for new dadspartners is also under this umbrella of psychotherapy.

*Another subspecialty I provide is helping clients who are leaving toxic relationships and healing from narcissistic abuse. I just published by first ebook, Soul Vampires: Reclaiming Your Lifeblood After Narcissistic Abuse, and I've published several articles for on all my practice specialties, as well as for my own blog at

I take a team approach to helping my clients feel empowered to develop their goals for recovering through depression, anxiety, griefloss, trauma andor life cycle transition. My philosophy is very strengths-focused and client-centered. I offer a compassionate listening ear and psycho-education, in addition to other avenues of intervention. I provide tele-health for clients who are geographically far (through Regroup Therapy and Simple Practice)

My Role as a Therapist

I am a client-centered therapist, and I believe that the stance of unconditional, positive regard is crucial to the healing of my clients. I offer a nonjudgmental space for my clients to receive support; tangible, evidence-based interventions to guide them in recovery; coordination of care with other helping professionals; psychoeducation; and hope as my clients emerge from challenging times to healing, wellness, and balance.
