Welcome.

​

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that we are all resilient and each of us has unique strengths. I work with my clients to build on these strengths, increase their insight, and develop the trust needed to achieve their goals. I do this by providing a safe space in which you may process your experiences, express your feelings, challenge unhealthy relationship patterns, and develop self-awareness.  My clients appreciate my down-to- earth, relational style, and open minded approach to therapy.

​

I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Chicago in 2006 and I have over 10 years of experience providing counseling to a diverse range of clients including perinatal and postpartum mental health, infertility, infant loss, trauma, family systems, LGBTQ issues, anxiety, depression and life transitions. I blend conventional psychotherapy and contemporary techniques drawn from DBT, CBT and mindfulness practices.

​

My training includes an internship at the revolutionary Chicago Women’s Health Center, with additional trainings in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and 20/20 MOMS, and BEST Doula Training. I am a currently a Board Member of Postpartum Support Louisiana.
