My Approach to Helping
Welcome. I enjoy working with people in all stages of life. I have an interactive, solution-focused, collaborative, and supportive approach that focuses on education, emotional processing, coping strategies, and skill-building. I have extensive experience working with teens, adults, and families and I regularly work with people experiencing anxiety, panic attacks and PTSD, trauma, relationship problems, and depression. My education, training, and life experiences have all contributed to my ability to connect and be an attuned and compassionate therapist. I love what I do, and am passionate about helping you to feel better.
More Info About My Practice
I have a background as a nurse, and have always worked in professions that helps others. I have relocated numerous times throughout the country and understand how hard that is, and my experience raising a family gives me first hand understanding of parents and children's issues.
I specialize in women's mental health and women's reproductive mental health (depression and anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum period, traumatic birth experience). I also have experience and interest in helping adults with anxiety, depression, life transitions, loss and grief, and new onset and chronic illness. I enjoy working with and empowering women to find their voice and help them in managing life's transitions. If you are experiencing problems with mood and anxiety due to pregnancy or childbirth, perimenopause,or menopause, know I am here and can help. Many physical, emotional, and social changes occur during these challenging transitions and sometimes we need a little extra help to sort things out.
I have a certification in Maternal Mental Health and also enjoy working with issues related to parenting and parenting support.
I offer a complimentary 20-minute initial phone consultation so you can evaluate if I am the right therapist for you. Call me at the number listed on the right.
