Perinatal Mental Health

Supporting women & couples during prenatal, pregnancy, & postpartum stages:

​I will make room for the not so common topics, that you may never hear about when welcoming new life. I hear and witness too often, women, men, & couples suffering in silence pre and post pregnancy, due to fear of upsetting or disappointing others, including family members, church leaders, friends, partner, spouse, and other children already in the household, and/or they are faced with unprocessed childhood trauma of their own. I specialize in helping women, men, & couples foster hope, self-compassion, resiliency, and courage by creating a safe space to share openly and honesty, about what they are experiencing during this tender time.


Your birth story matters and everything that comes before and after itYour experiences have merit. I welcome soon to be mothers, already mothers, grieving mothers, fathers, and couples to come as you are- unashamed and unfiltered.

- Gather accurate information regarding any symptoms- so you can start experiencing relief 

- Explore and process any uncomfortable thoughts-with care, acceptance, and safety

Young Adult Women (18-30)

Supporting young women through major life transitions:

Most individuals who are emerging adults are also facing major life transitions. New changes can bring about new ways of adapting/coping with life. Some may experience the need to change or reflect on their values, needs, and desires. It's at this stage, many are experiencing independence away from their family, culture, and traditions. It's common for many young adults to face recurring patterns or memories that have emerge from past events and are causing interruptions to everyday living.

Children (6-12)

Supporting school-age children & their caregivers:

Helping caregivers/parents learn how to best support their school-age children during various stages of development. It's common to see children hide how they feel for a number of reasons, in doing so, they often learn how to function or adapt to having low/mild levels of anxiety & depression. However, when anxiety or depression start's to interfere with the child's grades, activities, and once enjoyed hobbies, I am able to help teach key tools in finding relief from physical and behavioral symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. I help children develop healthy coping skills in learning how to express their needs and tap into their inner strengths in order to better cope at home, school, and boost self-esteem. I highly encourage parent(s) involvement with treatment, as this can have lasting benefits of progress in therapy. I may encourage a few parent/child sessions to foster greater communication, bond, and connectivity for yourself and child. 

Together we will:

- Explore more about your child's actual symptoms/behaviors

- Create a treatment plan that works for your child and parent

- Honor inner strengths, by acknowledging what is working

- Explore helpful resources your child can access at school or at home

- Piece together the life you hope for your child

- Create space to accept the many aspects to your child's feelings

- Welcome cultural values, traditions, and beliefs

Common Areas:

Anxiety, depression, parent/child bonding, adjustment to major life transition, childhood trauma, separation anxiety, parenting, social skills, family conflict,
