Are you a new mother, feeling overwhelmed and wondering if your not-so-happy feelings are OK? Are you just struggling to get through the day? Tired of the endless stress and anxiety? I provide a warm and supportive space for you to discuss your concerns. We'll work together to help you to feel more confident, experience more happiness, and create the life you want. To learn more about my practice in detail, check out my website:, or just call. Start the first step to a happier you!

I specialize in prenatal, postpartum and maternal mental health, and work from a holistic and compassionate perspective. Parenthood is full of rewards and challenges. It's often a group effort with the support of family, friends, and healthcare professionals. Don't be afraid to ask for help - you're not alone.

I also use mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, which can be very effective in treating depression, anxiety, self esteem, and relationship issues. My own experience in mindfulness-based practices for nearly 20 years provides an additional resource in working with my clients.

Terrible therapist.  Tried to bill for a session that did not happen and when refused to pay, said she would no longer see my son then.  Now that we have a competent therapist, we know that this goes against all therapist training in that there is always supposed to be a transition/final session for the welfare of the patient who was a minor.
Shame, shame on her.
