Founder & Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Welcome! While I am not currently accepting new clients, I encourage you to take a look at the profiles of my incredible, talented team of therapists.
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and certified by Postpartum Support International as a perinatal mental health professional (PMH-C). I am warm, attentive, relatable, supportive, and genuine. My goal as a therapist is to foster an environment where you feel safe and supported, and together we will find ways to improve your life by building on your strengths. Starting therapy may be scary and finding someone who is a good fit for you can be hard. Taking that first step and reaching out takes courage, and I appreciate you trusting us.
I founded Reproductive Mental Health and Wellness because of my passion for working with individuals throughout their reproductive journey. I love helping those struggling to become parents and parents who are struggling with this new role. I bring both lived and academic experience to my work, which consists of infertility (primary and secondary), pregnancy loss/miscarriage, complicated pregnancy, premature birth, NICU hospitalization, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I work with individuals who are experiencing painful memories and distress related to these challenging experiences.
My objective is to provide a place to explore your concerns and will collaborate with you to create achievable, meaningful goals to improve your emotional well-being. With certification in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), experience with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), certification in TF-CBT (trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy), and other modalities, I will tailor my therapeutic interventions based on your individual needs. I have completed specialized training courses in fertility counseling, perinatal mental health, and Positive Discipline parenting strategies. I hold a B.A. in psychology from Barnard College of Columbia University and an MSW from San Diego State University.
My self-care time is spent with my husband of 18 years, our rainbow baby, and our rescue dog. I love to play board games, take walks, do arts and crafts, read, and listen to podcasts.
