I work with adults who are too hard on themselves, especially parents and people experiencing chronic pain. Do you feel like you should be doing things better? Do you feel guilty when you take time for yourself? Are you ambivalent about parenthood? Do you experience pain, anxiety or depression at times when you are pushing yourself or when stressful life events occur?
Learning how to treat ourselves with compassion and balance caretaking for others with self-care is something many of us have to learn. A supportive therapist can help you learn to treat yourself with more compassion, relate to others more authentically, and to enjoy your life more fully than ever before.
Areas of specialization include prenatal/postpartum depression and anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, life transitions and parenting stress.
I also offer consultation and supervision for psychotherapists relating to maternal mental health.
