When it comes to building a family, no two stories are the same. For some, the challenges of trying to conceive, having a miscarriage, or the loss of a young child can be overwhelming. How do I know? Because I’ve been there.
I had no idea that starting a family would have so many ups and downs. Like many, I thought becoming pregnant would be simple. How wrong I was! Fertility treatments, the hormones, postpartum emotions are real and nothing to joke about. What I’ve learned is that a support system is essential in navigating these difficult times without losing your mind.
Many feel unprepared and don’t realize that others have walked in their shoes and can help them make it to the finish line. Sometimes, you just need a place to start. I work with women and couples going through IVF, have experienced loss, or are struggling with perinatal emotions. My job as a therapist is to support you, wherever you are in creating the family of your dreams.
An essential quality of any therapist is that you form a connection and level of trust where you can work through your current situation and reach your goals. It would be tough to share your deepest fears with someone you can’t even look in the eye! My clients tell me it’s like having a cup of coffee with a good friend, where there is no judgment about anything they say during our time together. I am confident that I can provide a safe space for you to grow.

I could add a long list of my continued education accomplishments, but what I sincerely want you to know most about me is not about the trainings and certifications I’ve completed in the past. Know that I am connected and actively engaged in ongoing education to provide my clients with the best possible strategies. I look forward to helping others navigate the turbulent times to reach their desires.
