About me

My approach is down to earth, genuine, and supportive. To me, modern therapy is about real people having real conversations; so while I use evidence-based clinical practices, I make therapy feel like coffee with a good friend who helps guide you towards solutions to your problems for the world we live in today. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach to therapy - I take an eclectic and person-centered approach to each mom I serve.
