Each woman has her story, and each pregnancy has its own pathway. Since I had the privilege to closely observe women in their perinatal period, I have come to appreciate how diverse and unique their stories can be around pregnancy and child rearing. I am committed to provide culturally sensitive non-judgmental compassionate support for women to help them feel supported and accepted as they enter their motherhood.
My areas of clinical interest include perinatal anxiety and depression, pregnancy loss, grief, addiction, and compassion fatigue.
