Sometimes the transition to motherhood isn’t what you expected. You are not alone. 1 in 7 women experience Perinatal Mood and/or Anxiety Disorders (PMAD). Although my passion is to help new and expectant mothers overcome perinatal mood disorders, I work with all adults on a variety of concerns. Through our work together you will find your inner strength, learn and utilize self care strategies, empowering you to become the best version of yourself. After all, the best view comes after the hardest climb.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and have been working in the mental health field for over 10 years, but to be honest, I’ve found myself in the “helping” role for as long as I can remember. I obtained my bachelors degree in psychology from Framingham State University and then and completed my masters’ degree from UMass Boston in Mental Health Counseling.
My professional experience has included working in all types of settings including Psychiatric Day Treatment, Inpatient Psychiatric and Eating Disorders Units, a DBT group home and outpatient levels of care. Most recently, I have worked in the managed care industry as an intensive case manager and utilization reviewer. You name it, I’ve done it!
I am also a survivor of postpartum depression, anxiety, and rage. I am candid about my experience and how I have turned my pain into purpose, truly allowing me to be a better therapist. Through my own complex journey into motherhood, I have found the passion and dedication in helping other mothers find their own balance and joy. I have walked in your shoes and fully believe in your recovery.
I hold the Perinatal Mental Health Certification (PMH-C) credential by Postpartum Support International. I have completed Postpartum Support International’s two-day components of care training certificate as well as the advanced perinatal psychotherapy training. I am also a professional member of Postpartum Support International (PSI) and a volunteer for the Massachusetts Chapter of PSI.
It’s important to me that you feel we would be a good therapeutic fit. I draw from evidence based treatment modalities when indicated, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I believe that you are the expert of your experience and I am here to help guide you to make positive change.
