Provides therapy in Louisiana

About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Accessible, affirming, a container, an advocate, and likely a bit irreverent.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Early on, we all find ways to cope and move through the world, but in times of upheaval (like becoming a parent), those ways might not work like they once did. I build on the wisdom and autonomy of each client to find news ways of being and doing.

  • Together, we will:

    Sort through the intersections of attachment, trauma (big and small), perinatal mental health, social and cultural expectations, and a global pandemic to find stability, self-regulation, acceptance, change, and safety.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    I work with people on all points of the birthing path- whether you are just thinking about having a child, trying to conceive, are pregnant or postpartum. This includes those with loss and infertility, as well as partners and birth workers.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Our world comes down hard on birthing people, and pandemics of COVID, racism, and maternal mortality have only amplified the need for support.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    While I have a physical office space, I am currently offering telehealth appointments only. I accept BCBS PPO insurance plans.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I am certified in Perinatal Mental Health and have specific training in EMDR, Advanced EMDR for the Perinatal population, birth trauma, perinatal loss, infertility, trauma-informed/sensitive yoga, and birth justice.
