I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with extensive experience working with individuals during the most difficult times of their lives. After graduating from Southern New Hampshire University with my Master’s degree in Community Mental Health, I followed my heart in working with patients in a community mental health setting. During my graduate work and studies I spent much time working with victims of domestic violence, therapeutic mentoring and volunteer for Girls on the Run. I provided supportive Emergency Services and Crisis Therapy wherein I assessed patients in crisis and connected them to needed interventions whether inpatient stabilization or outpatient care. I later followed this path and have spent the last 13 years of my career working in crisis mental health. It is in this journey I discovered my passion for perinatal mental health.
I pursued this passion and have been working as a perinatal mental health specialist, receiving my training and certification through Post Partum Support International. I am highly trained and experienced in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Grief and Trauma support, and in 2019 I was certified in my greatest passion, Perinatal Mental Health Counseling, through Post Partum Support International. Through my Perinatal Clinic I have provided compassionate care for pregnant and new mothers. I have supported my community with my work through New Hampshire community mental health centers. I am now pleased to open my own practice more broadly through Sunrise Counseling.
I have received training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in assessment and treatment, psychotherapeutic approaches to treatment with advanced therapeutic issues, grief and loss as it relates to perinatal mental health and evidenced based psychotherapeutic tools to address symptoms of perinatal mental health disorders.
I utilize compassionate regard to support individuals in their journey of self exploration, identifying their strengths and resiliencies, and embracing their best version of themselves.
