When Motherhood Doesn't Make Sense
Every mom is different and so are her children; but one thing every mom shares, is the task of trying to make sense of motherhood from the perspective of her own life. That is, navigating the daily dance between real-life mothering and the fantasy we thought it would be. "Being a mom" impacts every dimension of a mom's life - her thoughts, her emotions, her choices, her sense of identity, her sexuality, her finances, her body, her relationships, her sense of self, and more. Sometimes motherhood stretches us to our limits and results in depression, anxiety, stress, and guilt and doesn't make sense to us at all! When motherhood doesn't make sense, moms get stuck!
A Private Practice for Moms & Moms-to-Be
I am an expert at helping moms and moms-to-be with this crazy thing called motherhood! I understand that moms don't have the luxury to sit around and talk about their problems; they need solutions and they need them now! So counseling is not about dwelling on the past or sitting around merely talking about the problem- - it's about getting unstuck in the present and taking actionable steps toward the life you want to be living - starting day one!!! It's about tackling the challenges and problems that seem impossible right now and shrinking them down or transforming them into something desirable, doable, or possible!
Drawing on Strategies that Work: Coaching, Counseling, & Family Therapy
I have a unique background and can draw from and pivot to several areas of expertise. As a former professional life coach and an experienced licensed counselor and family therapist, I combine the best strategies in the realms of self-improvement, mental health, and family therapy, and systemic thinking. Combined we develop a solution oriented plan to feel better, move beyond your current mindset, and regain a sense of hope, possibility, and optimism about yourself and being a mom!

Pregnancy can be a time of joy AND stress and anxiety; especially if you are a worrier to begin with or are living through a stressful situation right now!

Counseling can be an effective means to prevent postpartum depression and lessen the risks that have been associated to chronic stress and anxiety in pregnancy.
Significant changes in mood are the number one complication from pregnancy; yet most moms, moms-to-be, as well as their partners and family are unaware of their risks or what to do when this occurs. Many moms suffer in silence and the family as a whole struggles to understand how to help and what to do. Counseling can help you feel better and get back to feeling like yourself again!!! Don't waste this precious time feeling bad; find real solutions today.

It's easy to get lost in the process of becoming a mom and end up feeling like a shell of the person you once were. And, for many moms, it's complicated to find your way back again! I can help "you do you" again and emerge feeling better as a person and a mom! Once you become a mom, everything that affects you, affects your children and vice versa. Sometimes parenting and life circumstances seem like an unsolvable puzzle and it feels like you have run out of options! The worry, the stress, the guilt, the doubt - there are strategies to cope and manage more effectively: soon you see the light at the end of the tunnel! While therapy may not seem ideal to you, it is proven to be as effective as medication.
You probably are thinking the last thing I want to do is go and see a counselor or therapist! I don't even have an hour to myself, let alone give up an hour of my precious time to sit around and talk about my problems! But what if that hour made the other 167 hours that week better? What if that 1 hour made all the difference?
