Reproductive & Maternal Mental Health Therapy

No one really understands what you're going through. At least that's how it feels.

Your friends and family want to help, but don't know how; don't know what to say. Neither do you...

My deepest passion lies in supporting women as they navigate their reproductive endeavors - whatever that entails. Being a woman, setting and reaching goals, healing from the unanticipated and figuring out new roles is so much easier when you have experienced support.

You don't have to feel alone anymore. I get it, truly. I'm here for you.

I am a trained maternal mental health therapist - meaning, I specialize in treating everything under the "reproductive" umbrella. I can offer you clarity on your experience, support through your struggles and guide you to healing your emotional wounds.
