Short Description I’m an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#136748) supervised by Renee Finnicum #2456. I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology in 2000, and my Masters in Business Administration in Marketing from Drexel University in 2004. After having my first child, I knew I wanted to help other women navigate the journey of family planning and I enrolled in my mentor’s MFT program. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Alliant International University with a Masters of Arts in Child and Family Therapy in 2022. Leaning into my village, we welcomed our second child while I was in school. I completed my practicum at Liberation Institute, providing accessible mental health services to clients in San Francisco and through out California. The ability to provide tele-health services allowed me to balance having an infant, being present for my toddler, being a loving wife, sister, and daughter. I am so grateful to serve on the management team at Liberation Institute, training hundreds of aspiring clinicians in group therapy. I am a Gottman Bringing Baby Home educator. I am grateful to have completed The Gottman Institute Level 1 and Level 2 Training. This spring, I am so excited to be training with Postpartum Support International and receiving my Maternal Mental Health Certificate.

Description I come from a compassionate, solutions-focused perspective, where I allow my clients to reconnect with their inner light and joy. Each client is the expert in their own journey, and I value being a beacon of hope for my clients. My specialty is helping clients navigating the journey of having a child and growing their family. Incorporating a client centered and positive psychology approach, I facilitate a safe place for my clients to experience the ups and downs of having a baby. I have continuously helped my clients step into a more holistic narrative of themselves, and connect more fully in their partnerships through the rollercoaster ride of IVF, IUI, and or adoption. I have successfully helped couples turn towards each other and feel a renewed closeness in their connection. My priority is to reflect kindness and support during the challenges of family planning. As an experienced clinician I have assisted women and couples navigate family planning, parenting and have helped couples turn towards each other with love and admiration, my qualifications include: Gottman Method Level 1 & 2 focused solely on fostering love and compassion for couples. Gottman Bringing Baby Home certification. Growing a family takes a village. I would be honored to hold a compassionate role within your support network as you build you family. When you are ready, feel free to reach out to me for a consultation. Wishing you wellness in your journey.
