Hi there! I am so glad you are here and are seeking support! I am a mama to 4 wonderful girls and wife for over a decade. Three of our daughters are still tiny (but growing too fast!) and in this season of life we are mostly exhausted, trying to keep up with too much, laughing a lot and trying our best to be kind to ourselves (and eachother).
I’ve been working in mental heatlh for a looooong time but finally opened my own counseling practice in 2017. I’m sure like many that are reading this, once I started having children they definitely rocked my world, sense of identity, and my purpose in life. My experience of becoming a Mom is what has motivated me to specialize in perinatal and maternal mental health and help parents feel like the best version of themselves. In 2012, I experienced significant birth trauma and postpartum depression and that truly was a defining moment in my life. Building resiliency from that experience and ultimately healing has helped make me who I am today. It also helps me to be truly empathetic with the families I work with. I really do get it and can empathize no matter what it is you are experiencing right now. We all have our own stories, breaking points, traumas and stressors. Ultimately, we want to be a better version of ourselves, feel like we know who we are and be the parents our kids need. I’m here to help, no matter what is getting in your way.
