About My Clients

My clients are varied as I have a few non-related specialties. I specialize in reproductive mental health (pregnancy, postpartum, loss and infertility), perfectionistic women, and adults with ADHD. I'm passionate about serving people who feel marginalized in society or live outside the box; LGBTQIA+, those in non-nuclear relationships, gamers/nerds, neurodivergent folks, single parents, and anyone else who has interest or identities that society doesn't affirm/welcome.

My Background and Approach

I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist. I have an advanced training certificate in perinatal and postpartum mood disorders through PSI (I'm a former postpartum doula). I have additional training in ADHD diagnosis and interventions, and I love to work meld the two by working with ADHD parents, although I'm passionate about helping an array of neuro-divergent folks. Generally, I lean more psychodynamic and experiential based in my approach. I think it's important to examine childhood and the experiences that led us to this point in our lives. I'm trained in DBT and infuse those skills into therapy when I think it would benefit clients. Everyone's therapy journey looks different, and I adapt to best serve clients to ensure they feel safe and comfortable in session.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a queer identified, former single mother raising two neurodivergent children, one of whom is non-binary, I am passionate about social justice and dismantling systems of oppression. I work hard to examine my own white privilege (and other privileges and advantages I hold). Lately, my passion lies in supporting neurodivergent folks have access to a world that supports their strengths and challenges, especially within school and work environments. I believe that all people are capable of change, and deserve lives that bring joy and meaning; often clients have been taught or treated otherwise. That's where I come in.
