Profile
“I am an active participant in session and, at times, will give homework and challenge your thoughts and beliefs to aid in self-discovery.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Becoming a therapist has been a calling for me from a young age. I have always been attuned to the feelings and the brain and intrigued by the different ways people view the world. Four years ago, I found my specialty in maternal mental health when I became pregnant with my son. I experienced postpartum depression and struggled to find someone who had training in this area. I spent several years learning and growing so I could be the type of therapist I couldn't find for myself.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am an active participant in session and, at times, will give homework and challenge your thoughts and beliefs to aid in self-discovery. I utilize humor when appropriate and tailor therapy to each client based on personality and productivity.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I find that the perinatal mental health space is changing as we strive to understand where the issues after having a child stem from. The intricacies of perinatal issues go far beyond hormone shifts, especially when you look at data on dads as well as moms after adoption or surrogacy. The challenges of growing families are gaining traction in the DSM and receiving recognition as a whole. Postpartum depression used to be the only diagnosis and something women felt ashamed of and the growth and understanding surrounding this is incredible. I love being able to sit with a new mom and say, “With help, this will get better!”
