My Approach to Helping

I am a compassionate, collaborative and dynamic therapist specializing in the treatment of pregnancy and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, fertility concerns, miscarriage, abortion, difficult birth experiences, and perinatal loss. My role is to create a safe and nurturing environment so you may explore difficult issues, strengthen your inner resources and build a repertoire of skills to use moving forward. I use conversation, practical strategies, and mind/body interventions to help you understand your emotions, make decisions that fit your values and help you live a more satisfying life. I am in network with Aetna, Reliant Behavioral Health, First Choice Health, Pacific Source, and Cigna and can bill out of network for all other insurance companies.

Why We are a Good Fit for You

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Oregon and hold a Masters Degree in Social Work from Portland State University. As a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Therapist, I continually pursue advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of reproductive mental health concerns. I have worked with people across the lifespan in community mental health clinics, public schools, and a university health clinic. My professional affiliations include the National Association of Social Workers, Postpartum Support International and I am an allied member of the Perinatal Mental Health Alliance for People of Color.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Postpartum External link

    Nearly 1 in 6 women and 1 in 10 men experience a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder. The symptoms arrive at a time when the demands and the stakes are high; the last place a postpartum parent wants to be is in a therapist's office. As a parent of 3, I understand. We will balance the exploration of feelings with concrete steps to help you feel better and come to enjoy parenthood.

  • Pregnancy (Prenatal Mental Health) External link

    I specialize in perinatal mental health which includes making decisions about starting a family and the journey to birth. For some, the path is straightforward. For others, it winds, bends and leads to unwanted places - infertility, loss, sadness, anxiety, or grief. I help families address these concerns so they move toward parenthood feeling exceptionally supported, encouraged and well.
