About My Clients
Most people envision a perfect family with a healthy, beautiful baby and what calm, confident parents you would be. That's only natural. We see it on Instagram, in shows, on book covers, and on the Dr. office or birth-center walls. If you're reading this, that probably isn't your reality. I am deeply sorry it didn't work that way for you. It's not your fault! If you feel exhausted, lonely, angry, grieving, or anxious, you are in the right place. You will get through this!
What I Specialize In
I will teach you to regulate your emotions and finally quiet your mind. We will identify and connect with your core values and move toward your ideal life. I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness), Trauma Therapy, and Mindfulness Self Compassion. As a member of Perinatal Support Washington, I am connected with the newest research, support groups, and other professionals available to help.
My Values as a Therapist
I had a baby in Fall 2020. Even as a trained mental health professional, I was deeply impacted by the isolation and anxiety that overtook my life. My experience deepened my empathy and desire to help other mothers and families. You don’t have to suffer.
