About My Clients

I work alongside moms that often feel worn out, tired, and as if they don't measure up to other mothers. Many of them find themselves struggling and wondering if they have what it takes to be a "good" mom. Together, we find their confidence, work through the challenges of being a mother, help find natural support systems and self-care practices to get them back to the peaceful place that they would like to be. I am here to support them along the way.

My Background and Approach

Working from a holistic, person-centered approach, my practical experience includes supporting individuals in a variety of areas such as, Maternal Mental Health, Pregnancy Support & Adoptions, Anxiety, Life Transitions, Grief/Loss, Depression, Self-esteem, Self-empowerment, and Personal Growth. I hold mental health & social service degrees in: Clinical Mental Health Counseling, MA, CMHC; Social Work, BSSW; Mental Health and Human Services, ASSW. And certifications & training in: Perinatal Loss, Certificate Training; Maternal Mental Health Training, PSI; Youth Worker, Certificate; Adoptive & Foster Family Therapy certification through Portland State University and Oregon Department of Human Services. In addition, I am currently working towards Perinatal Mental Health Certification through Postpartum Support International.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all have the ability to make changes in our lives, given the right support, guidance and faith that things can get better. Whether you are a new or single mother looking for support & guidance, a mother of three looking for validation & understanding, or a women who is uncertain about parenting, I believe all women have the right to the same care and support regardless of your situation, values or personal beliefs. Therefore, I offer holistic care practices that take a look at each client as a whole person, an individual, and their own expert in what works for them. I hold space for you, taking the time to help you identify your goals for therapy and the things you want in life in order to create the life you love.
