Children, Infants & Early Parenting, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders

Our earliest experiences of life form the foundation for the rest of our life. Whether you’re a parent concerned about your child’s early years, a couple in the throes of your early parenting years, or an adult who finds your own childhood experiences being triggered by your child’s behavior; these periods in your life are the heart of my practice.


Has being pregnant or becoming a parent (no matter how long ago that was) been more difficult than you expected?


Are you feeling unsure about what your baby or child’s behavior is telling you?


Are you finding memories from your childhood popping up in unwanted ways when you are with your child?​


If you’re wanting a thoughtful and experienced perinatal, early childhood, and family relationship professional to help you bring about better understanding and self awareness for you or your family’s concerns, I can help.


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Lafayette, CA, specializing in serving young children and their families, individuals, and couples in central Contra Costa County in the San Francisco East Bay.
