I have worked as a therapist for adults and couples in the San Diego area since 2011. I feel strongly that people undergoing times of major change truly deserve special attention. That’s why I support women before, during, and after pregnancy, men who are transitioning into fatherhood, and individuals or couples facing significant life disturbances.
As an LCSW, I have trained extensively in mental health from an academic and professional standpoint, with special attention to depression, anxiety, and adjustment disorders.
As a partner and mother, I also share a personal understanding of the challenges that come with fertility concerns, pregnancy, birth, motherhood while maintaining a romantic relationship. I’ve experienced our culture’s tendency toward isolation for new mothers, where it could be offering great support. Not only expectant parents, but all kinds of people in a period of emotional or psychological distress find they aren’t met with the support to help them cope.
This is why I create an environment of healing for individuals and couples during significant transition. I concentrate my practice on helping others foster the skills to maximize life experiences and reduce the intrusion of concerns and stresses that arise in times of change.
