My Approach to Helping
Infertility, pregnancy, and parenthood can create intense feelings of isolation, disconnection, and loss of control. It can be hard to feel connected to your partner during these times, you may feel unsupported or unheard. You want to feel closer to your partner, but you don\'t know how to make that happen. You have probably tried many different approaches already and feel close to giving up. Many of my clients start therapy feeling incredibly lonely and lost, but through our work together, find simple ways to reconnect to what matters most.
I will help you create a stronger family, learn new communication skills, and learn new ways to interact in all of your relationships. I will work along side you to learn to STOP the automatic, childhood-learned behaviors that are causing disruptions to your happiness. I will coach you in learning new, adaptive, adult-learned behaviors that will lead to a happier, healthier, more fulfilling relationship.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I am a wife and mom to 2 daughters and a bonus son. I absolutely struggled on my path to becoming a parent, and then again once my children were born. I saw that my friends were all struggling, too. We don't all come into adulthood with the perfect skills to be in a happy relationship, most people need to learn new skills. It's hard to know what you don't know unless you have a supportive, outside person to coach you through it. My experiences as a wife, a mother, and a step-mother have given me the gift of empathy and understanding for this sensitive period of change in a family. I use my own personal experience, mixed with a solid clinical training background and continuous education, to provide an tailored approach to my individual and couple clients.
