About My Clients
I work with women and new parents who are struggling with the transition to pregnancy or parenting and want to feel more enjoyment and confidence in their new identity and relationships. I know it can be intimidating to consider therapy. You may be pregnant or newly postpartum, grappling with the physical, emotional, and environmental changes that come with such a transition. You may be a tired or stressed out parent, trying to “have it all” but always falling behind the endless to-do’s.
My Background and Approach
I view myself as a guide that walks alongside you as you navigate your journey. Although I cannot "fix" everything in your life, I can help you determine ways to think or react to situations that can bring you increased joy. I use an integrative approach using CBT, ACT, and DBT. These forms of treatment are rooted in research and are proven to be effective. Together, we can determine what goals you have for yourself and your future, and develop a path to move in the direction of these goals. Your goals may be to have more clarity or boundaries within your relationships, to manage your thoughts more, to feel hope again. Your goal may be to simply feel better. We can work on that together.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that everyone has the ability to achieve more happiness and joy in their life, despite the circumstances they find themselves in. There can be space for both acceptance and change. It is extremely important to me to treat everyone with equity and fairness. I encourage open conversation during therapy about both the ways therapy is helpful and the ways that it could be improved. I understand that can be discouraging that I do not take insurance. However, my goal is to provide high-quality, intentional services to all my clients, while also protecting privacy and confidentiality. I cannot feasibly meet those goals being in-network with insurance companies. If you would like to use your out-of-network insurance benefits, I can provide a superbill to submit for possible reimbursement.
