About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California and a Perinatal Mental Health Certified Therapist (PMH-C) with Postpartum Support International. I specialize in providing mental health therapy services for the perinatal population including support for women and their partners struggling with infertility, perinatal loss, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMAD's), difficulty adjusting to parenthood and relationship challenges as parents. I provide in-person sessions at my office in Pismo Beach, CA or Telehealth/online video sessions for California residents. I am also a mom of two young boys (ages 6 and 3) and have experienced the challenges that come during postpartum. I am passionate about providing education, support and coping tools to women during this vulnerable transition in life. We were not meant to go through our parenting journey alone!

Service introduction

I offer mental health counseling for individuals and couples as well as local postpartum support groups on the Central Coast of California. I provide counseling services for California residents only (per my license requirements) either at my office in Pismo Beach, CA or Telehealth/online video sessions. I can provide a "superbill" after each session for clients to submit to their insurance provider for potential "out of network" reimbursement.
