I help tweens, teens, and college students manage drama that life throws their way. I also enjoy helping women adjust to life after baby.

“Anxiety's like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you very far.” ― Jodi Picoult I have worked with many clients to overcome negative feelings of what will happen in the future and guilt about what has happened in the past to work to be in the here and now. I use CBT techniques to help challenge negative cognitive distortions and to help "think about the way you think" and challenge those maladaptive thoughts and behaviors.
I worked for years on an inpatient psychiatric hospital, and have worked with many clients who struggle with depression. It's so frustrating, it's not something that you can just "snap out" of. I will work with you to challenge maladaptive patterns of behaviors and develop coping skills so you can feel like there is hope and that life is worth living!
After having my son, the anxiety I felt having to go to work after having a baby was unreal. The stress I felt about being able to do my job and pump breastmilk for my son was such a challenge. Life post-partum is no joke. After you have a baby, the focus is on the baby, but little is truly done to address the needs of the mother! I am working on obtaining a certification in perinatal mental health through Postpartum Support Internation.
