SPECIALTIES

PERINATAL MENTAL HEALTH AND NEW PARENT ADJUSTMENT

The transition to parenthood is often more difficult than we expected it to be. Depression, anxiety, loss of identity, and an overall feeling of imbalance can happen when trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and during the postpartum period. I work with women and their spouses/partners during this overwhelming time in life to cope with the ups and downs and to heal from depression, loss, and trauma. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are treatable with therapy. I'm here to support you. Let's work together to get to where you want to be; happy, connected, and whole.

RELATIONSHIP THERAPY 

The thought of going to couples therapy can be scary and taking those first steps takes courage. It may have been a long time since you felt you could be vulnerable with your partner. Whether you and your spouse or partner are experiencing high levels of conflict, devastating distance, or just need support to get through a tough time, I can help. I receive ongoing training in Emotionally Focused Therapy; a warm, nonjudgmental approach that helps couples create a positive, more secure bond. This approach has been validated by research as effective for many couples. My goal is to help couples experience more intimacy, understanding, and stability.

SUPERVISION/CONSULTATION

I'm currently an AAMFT Approved Supervisor Candidate and provide supervision to graduate students and post grads working towards licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I also provide consultation to any type of clinician who wants to learn more about treating clients with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs).  

PRESENTAIONS/TRAINING

I've presented on various aspects of treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders as continuing education for therapists and counselors. I've presented through the Alabama and Georgia Chapters of the AAMFT and am available for training any group who would like to learn more about helping people who are struggling with perinatal mental health.
