Bio:
I am a licensed therapist with specialty training in Perinatal Mental Health, Trauma, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I provide virtual teletherapy and have in-person availability in San Diego. I am passionate about helping women thrive on their journey to and through motherhood. I strive to hold space and empower women as they navigate pregnancy, postpartum, birth trauma, infertility, and other women's issues. I also support mothers, and couples alike, who face challenges related to NICU experiences, parenting children with disabilities and/or complex medical needs. While I have extensive clinical experience supporting women and families in these areas, I also have lived experience with many of the challenging aspects of motherhood, including: infertility, pregnancy complications, traumatic hospital birth, and parenting a baby with complex medical needs. I know what it is like to go through a pregnancy and birth with intensive medical interventions, and I also know what it is like to birth in the comfort of your own home with experienced providers and a supportive team. As an advocate of maternal mental health, I hope to continue to empower women and families as they journey through family-building and parenting.
