“I treat women’s mental health including depression, anxiety, perfectionism, relationship and parenting stress, and work-life balance concerns. I am passionate about helping women navigate mood changes associated with hormonal fluctuations including reproductive transition and trauma, maternal health and fertility, as well as grief and loss. I balance warmth and compassion within a collaborative framework to help women overcome emotional obstacles and live more fulfilling lives. I primarily utilize CBT, DBT, ACT and IPT interventions.”
