I am a licensed psychologist and I help women to sort through the confusion that often accompanies 'adulting' to decide who you want to be and how you want to live a meaningful life. If you have become caught up in being who others want you to be, trying to live up to the standards of women you admire, or trying to do everything right, chances are--you are barely keeping it together. As an integrative therapist, I combine psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and mindfulness-based therapies to help you overcome these and other issues while working toward your values. I strive to create a warm, compassionate, nonjudgmental atmosphere so that a strong therapeutic connection can be made, as it is through this relationship that true emotional and behavioral change can occur.
I have extensive training in providing evidence-based treatments (IPT, CBT, CPT) for post-partum/perinatal mood disorders, trauma/adjustment-related disorders, and depression. These treatments have proven effective through research, and are often instrumental in beginning the healing process and building strategies for coping with overwhelming emotions. So many changes, both joyful and painful, occur when navigating major life transitions, and these are not always considered safe to discuss freely. My goal is to meet you where you are. I am dedicated to helping women and their partners to successfully adjust throughout all stages of adulthood, and to fully come into themselves. I am passionate about helping you to achieve a deeper understanding of yourself, your connections with others, and your path to personal fulfillment. Call me today for a free telephone consultation.
