As a marriage and family therapy clinical trainee, I have been trained to work with all compositions of families. I specialize in working with pregnant and postpartum families, specifically those with infants and young children, who are experiencing challenges in life. I utilize Accelerated Resolution Therapy to guide clients in processing their trauma, whether from experiences in their earlier life or from their experience of delivering their baby, this eye movement therapy can be intense and is extremely effective in providing clients relief. I also provide psychotherapy to address perinatal mood and anxiety disorders for all parents, and their support people, and hold specialized training in this area through Postpartum Support International. As a parent myself, and a mother having moved through postpartum anxiety with my son, I know how hard being a new parent can be. I am here to help you and I am committed to sit with you through this. I will hold onto hope when you are in the thick of hard times and support you with practical skills to overcome your struggles as a new parent. I am also trained in a brief evidenced based intervention for caregivers of infants who have experienced early adversity through the Attachment Biobehavioral Catch-Up Program at the University of Delaware. With this intervention, my role is to help caregivers nurture and respond sensitively to their infants to foster their development and form strong and healthy relationships.
When we meet, you will find I am here to do all I can to support you in your journey, be your cheerleader along the way, and remind you to take a breath and laugh every once in a while. I am committed to providing a safe space for you to explore and process your thoughts and feelings and sit with you as another human having a human experience—we are in this together.
