Specializing in Womens Mental Health and LGBTQIA+ Therapy
Clinical Social Worker, LISW-S
I believe in a holistic focused approach to therapy. I incorporate mind, body and spirit to achieve a regulated emotional state and balance in one's life. I believe that client's are the experts in their own life and I have a variety of therapeutic techniques in my toolbox to accommodate each individual to find their unique healing path.
I specialize in working with individuals adjusting to parenthood, postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, infertility, pregnancy loss & birth trauma. Does it feel as if you've lost your 'self' in the wonderful gift and tremendous struggle of becoming a mom? Maybe you've been feeling overwhelmed by the deep sadness, ever-present fatigue and irritability of postpartum depression. The roller coaster of emotions that accompany both fertility and infertility. Or the restlessness, scary thoughts (we ALL have them) secret fears and blinding rage of postpartum anxiety. Perhaps you are deep in grief after a miscarriage. Or healing from birth.
Whatever the struggle, you are not alone. It is not in spite of, but because of our struggles that I believe we all have the capacity within each of us to flourish. Showing up as your brave self today is the first step in the your wellness journey.
Together, we will create a safe space to explore the issues you are facing and come through on the other side. If you're ready to understand the underlying causes of your struggles. Heal the painful feelings you are carrying. Gain new ways of coping. Connect with your most authentic self. Reach out today so we can get you to a place where you will flourish.
The second area that I am very passionate about is working with the LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples. I have specialized training working with LGBTQIA+ individuals who are coming out, exploring sexuality, transitioning genders, or couples that need a tune up on their relationship. As a licensed clinical social worker, I offer therapy in an affirming environment where individuals share concerns about their current and past challenges. I work collaboratively with clients to help them gain insight into their lives, feel understood in their struggles, develop tools to create meaningful and sustainable relationships, and move towards a healthier, more balanced life. I see each individual as an expert in their own experience and I will work with you to tailor therapy sessions to your personal goals, strengths, and coping skills.
My approach to therapy is holistic and integrative, drawing upon feminist, person-centered, and psychodynamic orientations. I work closely with clients to ensure therapy is safe, respectful, and confidential. Most importantly, I work actively to keep therapy focused and meeting the needs that clients present with.
