My approach to counseling and therapy is compassionate, collaborative and strength based, and my primary model is family-centered. Together, we will look at practical supports and resources to help you address current struggles. At the same time, I will encourage you to examine past beliefs that may be making it more difficult to cope with the challenges you face. I have developed a special interest and compassion in my practice for women and couples experiencing pregnancy, postpartum depression and anxiety, infertility, and pregnancy and infant loss.
