    Real talk: you might find going to therapy to be intimidating and a little scary. You might be  feeling like taking up space for yourself is selfish and that you should just get by on your own,  because “others have it worse” or “it’s not that bad”. If you get one thing from reading this I hope  you take this: you deserve to take up space. You deserve to be supported, seen, heard, and cared  for. Taking care of yourself, and/or your relationship, is the least selfish thing you could ever do.  You don’t have to do this alone, and honestly you shouldn’t. I believe wholeheartedly that we are  all works in progress, and that it takes just as much practice to take up space guilt free as it does  to achieve growth and healing. Life can be difficult and overwhelming and people deserve space  to pause and catch their breath. There’s a lot taking up residence in our minds these days, and I  think the primary voice should be yours. 

    I love working with individuals and couples who are navigating the perinatal period, parenthood,  communication, connection, intimacy, and extended families. I obtained my Bachelors degree in  Psychology and Family Studies from the University of St. Thomas and my Masters Degree in  Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University. I have done training in couples  relationships, trauma, and perinatal mental health.  

    Personally I am a wife and a mom to four kids and we have two dogs. I value quality time with  those closest to me and retreating into a good book, especially if it is accompanied by a cup of  coffee and a cozy blanket. I fervently believe that chips and salsa are entirely underrated and  under utilized, honestly they should be served and enjoyed everywhere. Similar to my out-of office life, in therapy I bring a lot of compassion, gentleness, patience, a dash of humor and the  tendency to offer a challenge when it might be needed. At the end of the day I want you to know  that this role is my passion, it is truly the greatest honor and privilege to be allowed into some of  the most vulnerable spaces of someone’s life. It is something I do not take lightly and do not take  for granted.
