    Choosing a therapist can be daunting.

    There are so many unknowns and what ifs. The last thing you want to happen is to choose a therapist that isn’t a great fit. I’m going to take this opportunity to tell you who I am and how I practice with the hopes of not wasting your time.

     Who I am

    • Direct
    • Active
    • Humorous
    • Calm

    Who I am NOT

    • Passive
    • Quiet
    • Focused on symptom management or reduction
    • Afraid of conflict

    If you want someone who uses humor, hones in on problems quickly has a strong calming presence, and doesn’t take shit from anyone, then I am your gal.

    I am married and raising a bicultural family.  I have two kids, one girl, and one boy.  My husband is from Germany. Raising a family is hard let alone trying to honor traditions from two culturally different parents.  It’s also hard to choose to raise your kids differently than the way you were raised.

    My journey to motherhood was not smooth and that’s what inspires me to help new moms and moms to be in my work.
