If you’re a woman or mother struggling with anxiety or depression, you're not alone. I am here to help you feel better. I understand whole-heartedly the challenges that women face when experiencing infertility, pregnancy, grief/loss, trauma & postpartum depression and anxiety. Women often feel stressed out by the transition to parenthood, adjusting to new roles, relationship challenges, major career decisions, caring for a baby and parenting young children. I’ve dedicated my career to helping families thrive, grow and heal and we will work together to help you feel like yourself again. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with specialized training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, evidenced-based treatments and culturally responsive care. I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Illinois and earned my Master’s degree from Northwestern University in 2002. My services are inclusive, welcoming all. If you are a woman experiencing anxiety, depression, shame or guilt, I am here to help. Charlotte Women's Counseling provides you a safe & comfortable environment for your counseling needs. Our office located in Elizabeth, nestled beside the quiet & beautiful Independence Park. My practice is gender and sexuality inclusive and open to all families.
