About me

Anxious about new parenthood? Having trouble adjusting to the transition of parenthood? How come no one warned you? If these are questions you have or things that you have been dealing with, allow me to support you in the ways that you need. I am trained in perinatal mental health, am familiar with how jarring the transition can be and I can provide you with information as well as tools for adjusting and getting the support you deserve. Become an empowered new parent and learn to give yourself grace so that you can enjoy your child, yourself, and your life.
