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 or expectant mom struggling with fear, rage, sadness, panic, worry, or feeling completely overwhelmed, I can help you restore balance and improve the quality of your life.  So much can come up around pregnancy and after birth. We will work together to help you feel better so that you can be the best possible version of yourself.

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 struggle with body positivity?  Are you ready to learn ways to nourish your mind and body in a sustainable way?  Do you struggle with food freedom or poor body image?

 

I work with adults struggling with:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Unhealthy relationships with food

  • Binge eating and/or restrictive eating

  • Trauma

  • Body image/self esteem

  • Life transitions

  • Infertility

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.

  • Building your mama tribe

  • Parent burn out

  • Intuitive Eating

  • Working moms
