I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I am certified in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) through Postpartum Support International.
I specialize in all aspects of reproductive mental health, including pregnancy, postpartum issues, perinatal loss, birth trauma, infertility and third party reproduction. I also see clients who are struggling with life transitions, depression, and anxiety.
While my initial training was in treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, I have expanded my practice to include services for infertility, perinatal loss and traumatic birth. I feel strongly about maternal mental health AND maternal physical health. I am encouraging our society and healthcare system to change the way it approaches the care of women after birth. When the focus shifts to the baby, often a mother will ignore her own emotional/physical symptoms. We repeatedly see women who reach out for help and be dismissed or not heard. We need to ASK and we need to LISTEN.
I am a proud member of:
