I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice at Counseling Solutions of Alaska.
I specialize in Perinatal Mental Health helping women and their families cope with the emotional aspects of peripartum mood and anxiety disorder (PMADS), infertility, high-risk pregnancy, and perinatal loss. I also aid clients in exploring the birth experience, preconception planning, parenting concerns, and lifestyle change.
There are many schools of thought and traditions in psychotherapy; I believe that every mother’s experience is unique and they each deserve to be met where they are at. I approach therapeutic work from a person-centered perspective- which means that your goals, experiences, and background set the tone for our work together. You are the expert on your life. Together we can establish an authentic therapeutic relationship that provides an open, supportive, and nonjudmental space for healing.
Within that context, I employ an eclectic approach tailored to the needs of the individual or family. That approach may include, and is not limited to, the following types of therapy:
You are not alone.
You are not to blame.
With help, you will be well.
