“Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
Focusing on what truly matters
My goal is to help you emerge from the struggles of parenting with a newfound clarity and presence. Services are provided via online perinatal therapy in California. Parenthood is a time to be treasured but mental health challenges can prevent us from soaking it all in. As your online perinatal therapist, we will work together to remove the barriers that get in the way of you fully showing up and being present for these precious moments.
For most of us, becoming a parent changes our lives so dramatically that we may lose sight of the person and parent we truly wish to be. Many of us think "this is not how I thought it would be" at some point during the perinatal period. Parental stress can cause parents to experience anxiety, (sometimes scary) intrusive and/or obsessive thoughts, marital conflict, and communication breakdown during the first weeks, months, and years of parenting.
My approach is warm, client-centered, and solution-focused. We will work together toward designing a lifestyle that supports you in becoming the parent you long to be. I am here to help you breathe, take time for self-reflection, and to chart a course that is in alignment with what truly matters to you.
