About me

I enjoy helping people on all parts of their reproductive journey reduce overwhelm, manage anxiety and find harmony amongst the roles they have. You look like you have it all together. In reality you are struggling to make it through the day. Feeling pressured to be everything to everybody?All the while, internally you are a mess. You've been through challenges in the past and normally you are able to work your way through and bounce back. But now, this has gone on longer than you hoped. Life as a mom is not what you expected. This transition is a lot to handle. Leaving you feeling like a shell of your former self. Do you find yourself up at night worrying about what’s to come or replaying day? We can work together to help you find balance between the many hats you wear while still having the time and energy to focus on your dreams. Therapy can help to shift your mindset, improve your mood and stop repeating self- defeating behaviors to finally get out of this emotional rut.
