I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, and have training in Maternal Mental Health and NICU Considerations. I am trained in EMDR, and am currently receiving training in postpartum mood disorders. In addition, I have experience working with adolescents (and their families) in a high school setting.
I provide an inclusive safe space for you to explore you. I will work to empower you as you navigate life transitions. I offer a nurturing, humorous and direct approach, I am collaborative and curious and know support is vital.
My perinatal work is grounded in my personal journey, as a Single Mother by Choice, which took me through fertility treatments, bedrest, a high risk pregnancy and a child born premature. I have an insiders understanding of navigating the NICU and advocating for a child with developmental delays.
I am passionate about supporting parents maneuver through parenting, with all its joys and challenges
I believe in the intersection of psychotherapy and social change, and see the impact of intergenerational trauma, especially on BIPOC psyches and bodies. I am committed to healing justice and achieving wellness through systemic change.
I also have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and spent many years working professionally in the entertainment industry, so I myself have navigated all those ups and downs.
