About My Clients

My clients are smart, high achieving women who are struggling with anxiety and/or depression. They've tried to deal with their symptoms, but are ready to acknowledge that they need some support in order to get back to feeling like themselves and enjoying the things they love. If they are pregnant or postpartum they may be facing overwhelming symptoms like: recurrent negative thoughts, panic attacks, low energy and mood, or extreme irritability.

My Background and Approach

I use CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) because it has been shown to work particularly well for relieving anxiety and depression and it gives practical tools which people can use outside of our sessions. I also use some mindfulness in my practice, bringing in skills that people can use to connect more deeply to their day-to-day life and enjoy every moment they are living, instead of replaying the past and worrying about the future. My post-graduate training has been focused on anxiety and depression (Anxiety and Depression Association of America), as well as the pregnant and postpartum population (Postpartum Support International)

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My life's work is to support women in their individual journeys. I am passionate about helping women meet their true selves, enjoy life, and live in a way that honors their values and goals. I have two daughters and am passionate about equal educational opportunities for girls in the US and around the world. In my down time I read, watch Sci-Fi, spend time outside and try to laugh as much as possible.
