About My Clients

My ideal client is someone who is open to change and assistance. I work mostly with women who are experiencing postpartum and perinatal issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, rage and feelings overstimulated and overwhelmed. I also work with people struggling with depression and anxiety related to everyday life issues.

My Background and Approach

I am a psychotherapist who has been in practice for 14 years. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. I am also dedicated to helping adults and individuals cope with anxiety, depression and perinatal mental health issues. I am a certified perinatal mental health provider and have specialized training to assist women in their journey through motherhood and its complications. I am an empathic, caring clinician who utilizes evidence based practices, support, psychoeducation and sometimes humor to assist you in working through your struggles.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone can feel better or have moments of feeling better. I have worked with people who have amazed me with their strength and their resiliency and it is my belief everyone has the ability to realize their strength and potential.
