I'm especially passionate about working with people needing both pregnancy and perinatal mental health support with a specific interest in postpartum mood disorders. Parenthood is both a monumental and overwhelming part of life and I enjoy offering support and validation throughout the complicated and oftentimes arduous journey.
In addition to my specialty in women's issues, I also have extensive experience treating adults with anxiety, depression, psychological trauma such as intimate partner violence as well as individuals experiencing difficult life transitions.
Above all, I understand that my clients are the experts in their life. I prioritize creating a therapeutic relationship where my clients feel in control of their treatment, supported by me, and empowered to reach their goals.

I love to read parenting advice and ideas. I also love trying new restaurants with my daughters and husband. I like to read self-help articles as well.
I do HIIT workouts 4 times per week early in the morning. I also enjoy watching home renovation shows, drinking matcha green tea, organizing & de-cluttering my home, and exploring new places to visit with my family.
I have 2 Miniature Schnauzer girls, they’re salt & pepper. One of the funniest stories was when my German Shepherd dragged me by my shirt all over my backyard when I was 4 years old. He thought I was a toy.
