About My Clients

Your journey into parenthood may not be going as you thought it would. You may be struggling with infertility or loss. Maybe you are unsure about this pregnancy. The birth of your child may not have gone as planned and now that is leaving you feeling confused. Looking back on your childhood and the thought of how you want to parent may be bringing up old hurts. Finding a new identity as a parent may be challenging, impacting your relationship, adding stress to your life. Help is available

My Background and Approach

I have a Masters degree in Social Work from Roberts Wesleyan College and have spent the last 6 years helping families navigate the vulnerable time of transition into parenthood. My training in attachment therapy, interpersonal therapy, and parenting guides my work in helping strengthen the parent child attachment relationship, as well as, guide parents through the transitions that parenting and life can bring. Your story is so important and I hope to create a space for you to share your story, make meaning of your experience, and leave feeling a bit lighter. We will address your thoughts and feelings and help make sense of the impact on your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that although parenthood is special, it can also be incredibly challenging. There is no roadmap on how to be a parent, navigate parenthood with your partner, or deal with the stress this transition can bring. Society leads us to believe being a mom or dad is filled with joy and to feel anything less is to be ungrateful. I believe it can be beautiful, but your feelings, whether positive or negative, are real and true for you. I am honored to hear your truth.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
