Mother, woman, human.

Therapy with me:
My primary goal as your therapist is to create a warm and welcoming space for you to feel understood, heard, respected and safe. I enter each session with empathy, an open mind and a touch of humor. You are the expert of your own life. With non-judgmental support and compassion, I'll help you tap into your own tools and wisdom for growth and expansion that is authentic and true to you! I will work collaboratively with you, and meet you where you are, to support you in nurturing your personal goals to achieve the life you desire.
How therapy will help you:
Benefits of therapy come from a safe and supportive space to ‘pause’ in between the busy-ness of life and intentionally honoring your individual thoughts, feelings and experiences. During our time together, you will develop a deep and holistic understanding of yourself, your relationships and the impact of various life experiences, innately increasing your self-compassion, sense of fulfillment and confidence in implementing positive changes.
A little about me:
My most cherished role is being mom to my wild seven-year-old son, who always ignites my passion for supporting and advocating for parents. When I'm not engaging with my son in video games and piano lessons, I enjoy yoga, dogs, coffee, live music (pre-pandemic), astrology and house-plants. I tend to be a homebody, but suck up the zest of life by catching up with close friends and visiting old/new places when the opportunity presents itself. I am new to Maine and love living closer to family and exploring this beautiful new state!
Professionally, I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, am a Board Certified National Counselor (NCC) and am a certified Perinatal Mental Health Counselor (PMH-C). I have extensive experience working with pregnant and postpartum parents, as well as those who are trying to conceive or have experienced pregnancy loss. In addition, I have specialized training in spiritually-integrative therapy, as well as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing) for birth trauma.
