In-person and Online Therapy for Women in Arizona


Helping you navigate life’s challenges, so you can feel more confident, capable, and content.

You’ve been white-knuckling it for a while but you’ve reached a point where something’s got to give. 

You may be asking yourself, “Will things ever get better?!” as day-in, day-out, you take care of everyone except yourself, weary and unable to be fully present. 

Feeling heavy or numb – a mixture of worry, sadness, stress, and despair brewing up within you, like a boiling pot about to overflow?!

There is hope, and you can start to feel better – right now. 

I specialize in working with women and mothers who are burnt out and depleted. Using mindfulness-based therapies like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and trauma-informed therapies like EMDR, I’ll help you regulate your mood and feel more in control of your life.

You’re not alone. You’re not to blame. With help, you can get better.

Maternal Mental Health Counseling

Treatment for Postpartum Depression, Anxiety, and Other Stressors

Reasons to reach out for help:

  • Feeling irritable and angry
  • Low energy
  • Lack of motivation
  • Scary thoughts (often about the baby)
  • Being hard on yourself
  • Feeling numb
  • Feeling disconnected from your baby
  • Physical sensations like pressure in your chest

These symptoms can start during pregnancy and last for years after birth, not just a few weeks or months. The sooner you get help, the sooner you’ll start to feel better. I know it’s hard to find time for a shower, much less anything else, but I promise you that starting counseling now will pay off!

What you can expect from our work together:

  • Better sleep
  • Less panic and worry
  • Clearer boundaries
  • Tools to cope with stress and overwhelm
  • Improved communication with your family
Trauma Therapy

Processing the past so you can Live a meaningful life now

The human brain is powerful and complex. Neurons are constantly firing and wiring, making connections as we go about our lives and experience new things. In some situations, we might go through something hard, but come out on the other side feeling like we’ve learned something helpful. There are other times, however, when we go through scary or difficult experiences and are left feeling “stuck” in that situation. Together, we can work through the tough stuff so you can stay more engaged in the here and now.

Trauma can show up as: 

  • Nightmares and flashbacks
  • Avoidance of places, people, things, or events
  • Feeling disconnected from yourself and others
  • Lack of confidence
  • Negative self talk and self image
  • Relationship problems
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • People pleasing
  • Avoiding confrontation
  • Feeling out of control

Experiences that can lead to these reactions:

  • Scary birth experiences
  • Pregnancy complications
  • The effects of racism, sexism, or homophobia
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • Job loss
  • Intimate Partner Violence
  • Bullying
  • Infidelity
  • Chronic pain and illness
  • Loss of a loved one
Grief therapy

Support for Infertility, Miscarriage & Other Losses

Grief is a process as unique as each person. There’s no right way to grieve but friends and family sometimes say things that make you feel like you should hurry up and get on with life. It’s hard to find someone to talk to who understands and doesn’t just try to fix everything.

Getting support can help, especially if the pain of the loss is taking a toll on your work, relationships, health, or your desire to keep living. I have personal and professional experience with grief and can help you process what happened and adjust to your new reality.

Examples of loss:

  • Divorce or separation
  • Miscarriage and infant loss
  • Infertility
  • Job loss or change in financial status
  • Change in health status
  • Death of a loved one
  • Loss of a pet
  • Unmet expectations, hopes, and dreams

Teletherapy From the Comfort of Home

2020/21 forced everyone to pivot (it’s okay to laugh at the Friends reference!) including how and where therapy takes place. Luckily for myself and my clients, I’ve offered online therapy for a few years now and have good experience with virtual sessions.

This means you’ll still get that same excellent care and attention, even if we aren’t in the same room together. Added bonus: no drive time and no traffic! You get to be in your own environment, maximizing our time together and providing a virtual space from the comfort of your own home. It’s a wonderful way to feel connected without any logistics/major planning needed.

Please note: Requires a safe, private area at home and good internet – I’ll take care of the rest!
