Hello and welcome, I am so glad you are here! I am a licensed professional clinical counselor and a mother of two. I understand firsthand how overwhelming the transition to parenthood can be and over the course of my professional career and through my own personal experiences have developed a passion in supporting others in this journey. I believe we all are striving towards personal growth and fulfillment and that humans want to feel supported and connected, which can be harder when we become parents. It truly is an honor to walk alongside my clients as they work towards their own personal self growth, however that looks for them. Professionally, I have been working in the field since 2007 in a variety of settings including outpatient, hospital, school and private practice with experiences on a range of presenting challenges, including depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, as well as grief and loss. I also have received advanced training in perinatal mental health from
Postpartum Support International. In my clinical work, I incorporate a lot of mindfulness approaches, including in Acceptance and Commitment therapy, as well as utilizing Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Person Centered, and Solution Focused therapies. I also enjoy bringing in natural elements as much as possible, having also completed training in mindfulness based eco-therapy. I am trained in EMDR and am working towards certification. I love bringing EMDR into sessions as needed/desired by my clients. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my kids, traveling, and getting outside as much as possible!
