Services

I offer a variety of personalized services. After your initial intake assessment, we can discuss what type of sessions will best meet your needs. I offer sessions in my office, at your home, walk and talk, and Telehealth sessions including phone and video chat.

Pregnancy and Postpartum

If you are a new mom struggling with fear, rage, sadness, panic, worry, or feeling completely overwhelmed, I can help you restore balance so you can be the mom you want to be.  As a mom, I know how hard it is to balance self-care with the needs of your children.  You simply cannot pour from an empty cup. So much can come up around pregnancy and after birth. We will work together to help you get back in balance and feeling better.

 

I work with women struggling with:

  • Anxiety and/or depression in pregnancy

  • Birth trauma

  • Postpartum depression and/or anxiety

  • Postpartum mood swings 

  • Feeling overwhelmed

  • Grief and loss related to miscarriage

  • Infertility 

  • Postpartum isolation and lack of support

  • Maternal adjustment issues

  • Conflict with partners 

  • Sleep issues

  • Scary thoughts related to your baby

Individual Psychotherapy

Is life getting you down? Overwhelmed or feel like you are in a rut? Do you struggle to find balance? Have you developed strategies to help you cope with stress that just aren't working for you anymore? Do you turn to food as an escape or emotional outlet?

 

I work with teens and adults struggling with:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Unhealthy relationships with food

  • Binge eating and/or restrictive eating

  • Burn out

  • Infertility

  • Relationship challenges

  • Body image/self esteem 

  • Life transitions 

  • Trauma 

Parent Support

Being a parent isn't always a walk in the park. Many days are full of challenges, emotional roller coasters, and loss of patience.  As parents we sometimes need to vent, work through problems, and let go of self-doubt and judgment.  I too have screamed my brains out and then felt completely guilty about my behavior.  I work with parents looking to reclaim their life, and find their passion, purpose, and sanity even in the midst of chaos.  

 

I work with moms and dads to:

  • Let go of the notion of being the "perfect" parent

  • Navigate parenting styles and develop their own

  • Be more present with their children 

  • Increase patience and yell less

  • Find balance with home and work life

  • Process and resolve childhood trauma
    as it relates to their parenting

  • Find time to take care of themselves

Group Psychotherapy

Alone we are strong but together we are unstoppable.  Group psychotherapy provides clients an opportunity to gain invaluable knowledge and support from others struggling with similar issues. Daytime and evening groups available. 

 

I host and facilitate various types of support groups related to:

  • Building your mama tribe

  • Parent burn out

  • Disordered Eating 

  • Working moms 

  • Mindful parenting 

Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching

Finding a path to optimal health can be overwhelming. There is so much conflicting information, way too many "diets", and few doctors who can take the time to help you figure out the root cause and unique solution for your symptoms. I will design a wellness plan that is tailored to your bio-individual needs. We will work together to make changes that will support your health, goals, and well-being. I will guide you to make positive changes and support you on your path to wellness. 

 

I work with adults who struggle with:

  • Fatigue​

  • PCOS

  • Infertility

  • Disordered or emotional eating 

  • Sleep issues

  • Brain fog

  • Digestive troubles

  • Food intolerance

  • Autoimmune conditions

  • Yo-yo dieting

  • Sugar/carb addictions
