“Whether you know exactly what you’d like to change, and are struggling to do so, or whether you aren’t sure where to start but know you need support – I’m glad you’re here and I’m ready to meet you where you’re at. My goal is to team up with you to help you make meaningful and lasting change, according to your own vision for your life. My biggest passion and specialty area lies in women’s wellness, and I especially enjoy working with women navigating peripartum mental health concerns, infertility, gender-based stress and expectations, relationship concerns, adjustment to life transitions, perfectionism, and imposter syndrome. However, much of my prior experience also lies in treating depression, anxiety, binge eating, body image concerns, and trauma with people from all walks of life. My approach to therapy includes humor, authenticity, and a sense of common humanity – I believe we are all trying our best with the struggles of life, and we can also grow and improve our skills to manage them.”
