About My Clients

If you are a mom who feels like she is drowning in overwhelm and you are looking for ways to better balance the physical and mental load of motherhood - then I may be the right therapist for you! As a mom myself, I understand the anxiety, stress, and overwhelm that comes with balancing kids and multiple roles! And as a therapist, I can offer you realistic tools and strategies that can help reduce the overwhelm, find balance, and even joy during this season of life!

My Background and Approach

If you're pregnant, a new mom, or a mom who is just struggling to keep her head above water, I am probably the right therapist for you. With over ten years of experience as a maternal mental health and perinatal therapist, the skills and tools I provide are tailored specifically to your needs and are easy to use, concrete, and realistic (important, when we have A LOT on our plates). In addition, you'll also find the following in working with me: a sense of humor, compassion, validation, flexibility and consistency. Plus, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and have extensive training and experience in supporting women and couples through infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss. While the grief surrounding these experiences is often heavy, I help my clients to heal and find joy in life again. I am currently working 100% remotely - take your telehealth appointment from anywhere in Illinois!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an open-minded, curious, active listener who provides a safe and comfortable environment where you can share your thoughts and emotions without feeling judged. I will help you make connections between your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and choices. I believe that when you view challenging situations from different perspectives, you can create new solutions. I enjoy helping women to set realistic and attainable goals, and I support them as they work towards those goals. I will empower you to make lasting changes through the motivational techniques and strengths-based strategies I will teach you. I am passionate about helping you learn the skills that will benefit you so that you can experience a greater sense of peace, happiness and fulfillment in your life.
