Pregnancy & Postpartum Hope and Healing

As a specialist in pregnancy and postpartum support, I am committed to women’s reproductive health. I truly enjoy seeing women become the mothers they want to be as well as feeling happy, calm, and fulfilled.


In individual therapy I assist women to:


  • Find new coping skills
  • Resolve past traumas
  • Brainstorm ways of finding needed resources and target behaviors and thoughts that are contributing to symptoms


I work with issues around:


  • Loss of identity
  • Low self-esteem
  • Working mom’s guilt over leaving their baby
  • Stay-at-home moms' feelings of isolation
  • Conflicts in the marriage/partnership
  • Painful confusing thoughts of harming the baby or themselves
  • Struggles with sleep deprivation
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Re-emergence of “old behaviors” and previously treated issues such as eating disorders or drug and alcohol problems.
