Profile
“I hope to help normalize the stigma and shame surrounding infertility and help those in the journey go through it with dignity and grace.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I pivoted to specializing in the fertility field after my own struggle to conceive my daughter. I went through my own journey feeling very much alone and realized it shouldn't be that way. I hope to help normalize the stigma and shame surrounding infertility and help those in the journey go through it with dignity and grace.
What should someone know about working with you?
I always meet the client where they are and build from there. I use a mixture of positive psychology, mindfulness, and feminist theory in my work to help you find your strength and feel empowered.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I think that we are finally raising our voices to bring awareness to the importance of mental health and if we keep working together, we can help to erase the shame and stigma surrounding it.
