8514 SE Stark Street
Provides free initial consultation
Provides telehealth services
Practicing Since: 2005
My treatment approach is to provide support with insight and feedback to help clients address current challenges and long-standing issues. I specialize in maternal mental health challenges (miscarriage, infant loss, new parenting, difficult births), grief and loss, trauma, shame resilience, anxiety, depression, assertiveness training and addictions work (both substances and behaviors). I do shame resilience based curriculum as a Certified Daring Way Facilitator.
My longstanding practice involves exploring how our thoughts, feelings, actions and behaviors effect each other every day. In our work we identify thinking errors that can harm us in our work to resolve conflicts in our relations and within self esteem challenges. I am also certified in Brene' Brown's work which involves exploring our thought processes and how they can hinder us.
I am Gottman level one trained clinician. This work can be done individually or in couples work. The content is also applicable to new families with new or additional children in helping the parents communicate in a healthy and effect ways during this time of change and transition in their lives. This can also be applied in grief and loss work.
Our work can be centered on identifying and working towards resolution on a current or persistent issue that is interfering with your current life healthy balance. Sometimes this may lead to deeper unpacking of issues but, initially it is about problem solving and stability.
I work with women at all stages in their lives. I have particular training and background with perinatal mental health challenges including infertility, infant loss, new parents, new identities and mom and parenting challenges. I have been working with the Baby Blues Connection organization for over 10 years and work with clients individually, a couples and in groups.
Self Esteem encompasses so many areas of our lives...communication, relating, making plans/goals in our close relationships and in our communities of work, family and play. I am certified in Brene' Brown's curriculum of Shame Resilience to help us sort out the details and live our fuller and happier life.
We all experience loss in our lives whether it is the loss of an influential person, job or experience. We even experience loss and grief with 'good' things happen, we move, have the birth or adoption of a child, get a new job, etc. We often need help and compassion to sort through the various feelings and process the steps to help us move into places of acceptance of our new situations.
