Being a therapist is an honor which has allowed me the opportunity to be a witness to my client’s deepest wounds and to walk alongside them in their healing. In my 10 years as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have used my training to assist individuals who experienced fertility challenges and multiple miscarriages.
As a mother of two and someone who experienced birth trauma myself, I bring a deeply personal understanding, passion and sensitivity to Perinatal work. I am mindful that each experience is as unique as each of my clients and deserves a place to be nurtured and supported. I strive do this by creating a warm, authentic, non-judgmental space where you can begin to take the first steps towards healing and sharing your story.
My areas of specialty include birth trauma, prenatal and postpartum transitions, grief, infertility and attachment. I integrate mindfulness practices to support clients in reflecting and processing their experiences.
