My passion is helping pregnant women, birthing persons, and their partners as they navigate fertility struggles, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the postpartum experience. Having a baby is full of “both/and” experiences. You might feel both happier than ever AND more anxious than ever, etc. My goal is to give you a space to feel all of it and learn coping skills that work for you.
I also enjoy working with young adults and college students who are struggling grief, trauma, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, stress, boundary-setting, sexual assault and much more. It’s important to me that taking care of your mental health doesn’t feel like yet another item on your to-do list. You probably aren’t allowing yourself many breaks, so I’d love to help you make the most of your self-care time.
You might not feel as strong as you’d like to, but it takes strength to even research counseling and counselors. My hope is that you leave our time together feeling a bit lighter and stronger than you did. I consider myself an ally to those whose identities are so often used against them and am committed to my own growth as a privileged person.
My own self-care evolves as my life evolves. These days, I am happiest when I’m hanging out with my partner, kiddo, and cats. My self-care plan includes taking walks, listening to true crime podcasts, reading, watching Tik Toks, trying to keep my plants alive, and seeing my own wonderful counselor.
