About My Clients

If you are pregnant and struggling with complications or pregnancy after loss, I am here for you. If you are a new mother who is overwhelmed and anxious, I have been there too and can support you on your journey. If you are a mom, of a toddler, who is angered easily we can work together to help you feel like yourself again. Reaching out is the first step.

My Background and Approach

I have been working with families in various settings for over 20 years. In the past 12 years I have helped thousands of expecting and new mothers adjust to their new role and ease the transition to motherhood. At KM Therapy for Moms I provide home-based and tele-health therapy in the comfort of your own home in RI, parts of Southeastern MA and Metro-West.I provide a supportive and compassionate environment where we work together to improve your mood, manage your worries, and learn strategies to cope with the stress you are experiencing. I use a range of therapeutic techniques such as CBT, solution-focused treatment, and mindfulness to help clients feel better and enjoy new motherhood.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal belief is that our culture does not recognize the vulnerability and challenges that expecting/new mothers experience. We are expected to give birth and then go home without any support to figure it all out on our own. Then, we women are expected to go back into the work world and meet career demands while taking care of our families. My services provide the support and healing women deserve during the perinatal period. Studies show that at least 1 in 7 women suffer from postpartum mood disorders and I believe that number is much higher as it often goes unreported. My services help to fill the void that exists in our society regarding support for women during the perinatal period. As a social worker, I am also committed to improving access to mental health services for all perinatal women. I offer a generous sliding scale and I also provide therapy in the comfort of your home (as well as tele-health). You deserve to take care of you while you care for you family.
