Certified in EMDR therapy and Perinatal Mental Health
Welcome! I have a passion for reproductive and perinatal mental health issues and have worked in this field for 20+ years. I specialize in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, working with individuals experiencing birth or reproductive trauma, pregnancy loss, infertility or facing adoption or surrogacy. I am passionate about walking with you from conception through adjusting to your new parenthood roles and helping you build strong healthy attachments to your children. Helping women explore and build their core identities, improve self-worth and self-esteem are also foundational aspects to my practice.
I have an empathetic, compassionate and approachable style and have found EMDR therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Short Term Solution Focused Therapy techniques to be very useful in my practice. I also integrate relaxation and mindfulness approaches into my sessions and tailor each intervention to my client’s specific needs. I also enjoy being active in the community, and served on the Postpartum Health Alliance Board and volunteered for other community organizations promoting and supporting women’s health and mental illness. I strongly believe in empowering my clients by teaching them useful techniques and tools so that they can become more resilient and healthy in their interactions with others and in their everyday lives.
I am an EMDRIA approved consultant, providing EMDR consultation to therapists working towards certification or needing support expanding their comfort working with this therapy. I’m also an adjunct professor at a local University and provide clinical supervision for clinicians working towards their licenses. I am frequently featured on podcasts and other media outlets talking about Perinatal Mental Health, EMDR and trauma; I love spreading awareness about these important topics.
