Perinatal Wellness & Psychological Services provides individual therapy, couples counseling, and group services.

I am a licensed Psychologist in Orlando, with over ten years experience, specializing in postpartum depression, anxiety, infertility, miscarriage, and other reproductive and maternal mental health concerns, inclusive of the following areas:

  • Fertility challenges

  • Grief and loss concerns (miscarriage, stillbirth, or other neonatal loss)

  • Pregnancy challenges

  • Birth trauma

  • Transition to parenthood

  • Parent-child attachment and bonding

  • Parenting consultation and support

  • Depression / anxiety in pregnancy, Postpartum depression, Postpartum anxiety, Postpartum OCD, Postpartum PTSD, Postpartum bipolar

  • Relationship concerns

  • Work-Life-Family balance

I provide therapy to women and their partners on fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Life is a journey filled with events and experiences, and sometimes challenges. There is joy, but also hurt and sadness. The process of therapy is about finding hope and realizing your own potential within the journey. I create a safe space for individuals and couples to share, grow, heal, recover and maintain a healthy sense of self and wellbeing after major life transitions and emotional complications during the perinatal period. I have a wealth of experience and expertise in women's issues across the life span, encompassing training in grief, crisis and trauma. I have presented at national conferences and locally on the  topic of perinatal mental health and mindfulness and motherhood. 

I also provide consultations & workshops to agencies, organizations and local providers (OB/GYN, Midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, psychiatrists, pediatricians, chiropractors, general practitioners etc.) to build awareness, knowledge and provide resources on Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders. Please contact if you would like resources or a workshop for your practice.
