Pronouns are she/her.  

I’m a level 2 Certified IFS therapist with training in Intimacy From the Inside Out. I'm also a Certified Brainspotting therapist.

My Story

I’m a wife and a mom to 3 girls, ages 13, 17 and 20.  After a career in high tech and then staying home with my kids for 10 years, I went back to school to become a therapist when I was 38 years old, when my youngest was a year and a half, and everyone I talked to said I was crazy. But I felt it was a sacred calling to do this work of helping moms heal. Looking back, it was probably a sacred calling to help myself heal. 

 

Becoming a mother was hard won for me, having suffered multiple miscarriages and being part of a family legacy of infant loss. I devoted myself to illuminating the disenfranchised grief and trauma that often accompanies motherhood along with its ubiquitous identity shifting. I had an inner critic always telling me I was doing something wrong, whether it be not staying pregnant or not living up to the expectations of what a mom should do/be. 

 

Becoming a therapist meant embarking on a journey of discovery - discovering the parts of myself that were hurting, misunderstood, unseen.  IFS has been a catalyst to a deeper understanding of myself, which is ultimately what I hope can be true for all moms, everywhere. It is a true privilege to be able to spend my days with Jessica, befriending our parts together and culling our knowledge to gift to our clients and to you. I am so grateful to be invited into your lives today.
