I offer support to individuals and couples in the childbearing year to build a more beautiful life with their loved ones.
Marriage & Family Therapist in Minneapolis, MN
My focus is on transitions for families contemplating having a baby or adopting to parenting young children. This time of life brings enormous change to each individual in the family and all of the relationships held within the family. I work with couples who want to strengthen their bond or work through conflict, parents who want to parent closer to their values, and individuals who are struggling with changes during this time.
With a background in attending families before, during and after birth in hospitals and at home, I have a unique perspective on how families adjust to a new baby. I also have training from Postpartum Support International, which helps me address particular complications of PMADs (Postpartum mood and anxiety disorders). This can be a scary experience for new parents and I can help address the biological and psychological effects through education and a body-centered approach.
