About My Clients
I serve women and their support teams who are on their journey to and through parenthood. This includes those experiencing stress or emotional suffering related to primary and secondary infertility, pregnancy loss, medical terminations, pregnancy challenges, birth trauma, postpartum stress, depression and/or anxiety, early parenthood, and relationship issues surrounding these areas.
My Background and Approach
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience in Mental Health work. I have a certificate in Perinatal Mental Health as well as extensive training in Reproductive Mental Health. My approach is to help women and their support team cope with the stress surrounding the journey to and through parenthood. This includes introducing healthy coping skills to improve distress tolerance. It is important to have a full emotional gas tank to tolerate the stress that comes with this journey. Additionally, I teach easily accessible mindfulness skills to help regulate and ease your mind, body and soul. It is also important to help you transition into this new role. Through Interpersonal Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy interventions, I help guide you through determining what you have lost, what you need, and how to accept, commit to and live wholeheartedly so as to live a life with ease, peace and compassion.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
The journey to and through Motherhood is near and dear to my heart as I too am a Parent. I am an infertility warrior, and have suffered through the catastrophic loss of a pregnancy. I am a Postpartum Depression and Postpartum Anxiety survivor. As you can see, I have a deep understanding of the stresses surrounding this time in your life. After participating in treatment to heal, I decided to dedicate my career to helping women, men and their support teams heal and feel better. I believe every person deserves appropriate and safe mental health care during this time. It is important for you, as well as the lives you are bringing into this world.
