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.
