Psychotherapy, Art Therapy, and Support for New Parents 

Areas of Practice


In therapy, I focus on creating a safe and trusting relationship as a base from which we will explore your needs, fears, and desires. My approach incorporates elements of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and post-modern theories. I will help you to identify tools and techniques to develop your inner strengths and resources. 


"A picture is worth a thousand words." Art therapy invites you to express experiences and feelings through visual, tangible images. No artistic skill is needed. Art therapy is widely used in schools, hospitals, and private practices, and its effectiveness has been demonstrated through research and clinical experience. 


I have extensive experience supporting mothers and fathers of babies and young children. I provide treatment for post-partum depression and anxiety, relationship challenges after baby, and development of a new parent identity, with awareness and education about baby development. I facilitate Parent & Me groups through the Pump Station & Nurtury.


Fees and Insurance


My hourly rate is $150, and a sliding scale may be available based on need.

I am not contracted with any insurance companies, however, I can provide receipts which you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. The amount of reimbursement depends on the requirements of your specific insurance plan. You are responsible for communicating directly with your insurance provider and paying all fees in full at the time of session.
