My Approach to Helping

Are you going through a difficult life transition, having conflict with your partner, burning out at work, or going through infertility? And is the idea of driving across town to speak to someone about these struggles overwhelming? Then I am here for you. I founded Smart Talk, a live video therapy service for busy adults just like you. I am a collaborative therapist who is here to provide non-judgemental support and empathy. I believe that everyone has a right to improve their quality of life and I have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to access the support that you need.

Sessions are only thirty minutes long and affordable so you can participate in as many or as few as you would like. Since my services are all online, most of my clients schedule appointments during their lunch break, while their kids nap, or even while commuting.

More Info About My Practice

I created Smart Talk as a way to bring support to individuals who would otherwise not have time for it. We all deserve to have access to licensed mental health professionals as we navigate life and it's challenges. No matter what life looks like for you, you have a right to enjoy it and feel fulfilled in it. Supporting you in improving your quality of life is my number one goal.

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

I work with a few different groups of people in my practice. One of my primary focuses is supporting individuals and couples who are living with infertility. Infertility affects 1 in 10 couples in the USA and continues to grow in it's prevalence. As someone who has gone through infertility treatments myself, I can empathize and understand the struggle more than others. I can help you understand all of the infertility jargon, provide you with coping skills as you undergo your treatments, and support you in remaining a healthy and strong couple.
Another area of special focus is Millennials who are going through difficult life transitions and quarter life crises. Between the huge amounts of student loans from college, the stressors of work, and the isolation that comes with living in large metropolitans, more and more millennials report an increase stress, anxiety, and a quarter life crisis. I am here to walk you through your choices, support you as you evaluate your quality of life, and help you make decisions that will improve your quality of life and life satisfaction.
My final area of focus is in supporting new parents. Becoming a new parent is an exhilarating and terrifying milestone in many people's lives. No matter how much you have planned for this moment, you still feel unprepared and overwhelmed by it. And now, thanks to social media, you look around and feel inferior to all of the insta moms and dads that you see online daily. It's a normal transition to go through that most people don't openly talk about. I am here to support you through this major life transition. I am here to help you through sleepless nights, worries about your baby's development, and any other questions you might have related to parenting. I have extensive clinical training in parenting as well as personal life experience with my two year old twins.
