About me

Hello! I am a certified perinatal mental health professional through Postpartum Support International. I have been working with families of young children on and off since 2013. I have my Master’s in Clinical Social Work and working towards my licensure. My own personal struggles in child birth and postpartum led me down a journey of healing. I recognized the struggle it was to find a provider that understood my mental health issues regarding motherhood & my culture’s influence. I decided to return back to the mental health field little by little after dedicating 6 years to my children. Seeing the overwhelming need in my community that the pandemic brought. I believe in decolonizing Maternal Mental Health & addressing it holistically through mind, body, spirit, community, & culture.

Service introduction

I personally understand how difficult it is to find affordable specialized care as a new parent, therefore I offer a sliding scale fee. It is important for providers to acknowledge the impact oppression and intersectionality have on mental health which I why I offer discounted rates for individuals from BIPOC and/or LGTBQI2s communities. Please reach out via email or text to discuss sliding fee rates.

Individual Coaching Sessions
Not everyone has the same needs. I believe that in order to achieve wellness it is important to address the person on a holistic level: mind, body, & spirit. By identifying individuals' innate strengths and goal setting, I can help individuals back to balance.

Gentle Parenting Support
Parenting is the hardest job in the world if you do it intentionally. I have taken courses on gentle parenting techniques with an Internal Family Systems (IFS) approach. I still have young kids myself and still struggle with being gentle and intentional but I am committed to healing generational patterns through my parenting. I believe that everyone you meet can teach you something, and I learn the most from my clients. I can provide basic gentle parenting techniques, education on boundaries, and provide a safe space to discuss the difficulties and triggers of parenting while healing.
