    About Me

    It is such an honor to explore your life story with you. As a recovering perfectionist and people-pleaser, I often work with women who struggle with the same things. 

    These tendencies can be so helpful in life, but they can also get in the way of how you truly want to live.

    I love working with moms who want to feel like themselves again, break generational cycles, and show up in their relationships as the healthiest version of themselves.  

    My clients are incredibly talented, intuitive, sensitive women.

    They are looking for a counselor who is compassionate, yet practical. They enjoy having a tangible “take-away” to work on after each session. 

    Many of my clients are currently or have been in the helping professions (mental health, early childhood, speech pathology, etc.) or are doing work that is deep, meaningful, and impactful – such as being a stay-at-home mom (SAHM). 

    My clients tend to be naturally attuned to the needs of others, yet struggle verbalizing their own needs. They also setting boundaries with others at times. 

    If any of this sounds like you, welcome! I’m so glad you are here.

    I’m a Perinatal Mental Health Therapist specializing in Anxiety & ADHD. 

    I have specific tools that can help you feel like you again. My job is to meet you exactly where you are. I’m here to help you heal and find a new way forward. There is no right way & you don’t have to figure it out on your own. 

    Although I have over 15 years of experience working as a mental health professional, my real specialty comes from knowing what it is like to be right where you are. My own healing journey motivates me to continue to find new and effective ways to help other moms heal and grow. 

    When I am not working with my clients, I enjoy running, reading, and being outdoors. I’ve been married for 13 years and love traveling with my husband. We have four children who I love with my whole being yet stretch and challenge me in new ways daily. 

    I love laughing at funny videos, large cups of coffee, and eating M&Ms at the end of the night when my kids are asleep.

    If you think we would be a good fit, I would love to hear from you! All my sessions are provided online to clients in Chicago and across Illinois, South Carolina, and Florida.
