I believe that one of the most important times in a woman’s life is when she is expecting a child. It is a profound privilege to be part of a woman’s prenatal team. It brings me joy and meaning in my work to witness women making incredible strides towards health and happiness, all inspired by motherhood. I believe that every woman holds within her the answers to the sometimes difficult challenges that can occur during pregnancy and postpartum and enjoy helping women identify these solutions and blossom during this time.
Areas of clinical interest include: pregnancy, postpartum transitions and emotions, parenting, relationship satisfaction, women’s issues, and substance use/abuse
