Mental health is every bit as important as physical health, which is why its so important to us to offer services that support you mentally and emotionally – in addition to physically – before and after childbirth.

“My passion for helping women and families was born out of my own experiences in pregnancy, childbirth and all the moments that followed.
Like so many other women, I have experienced traumatic events surrounding the births of both of my children. I have personal experience with anxiety, postpartum mood disorders ( PPD and PPA ) as well as high risk pregnancies.
I am here to help women and their families uncover the resiliency as well as strengths that they hold inside of them, to help them find their way in a sometimes overwhelming, difficult and also beautiful experience called life.
I offer compassion, unwavering empathy, honesty and humor in the face of giant challenges that come in small packages.
In therapy, I incorporate and use aspects of a variety of different therapeutic models while using a strength based approach to connect them all.
Focusing on meeting you where you are at in your life I will draw mostly from Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Narrative Therapy. Learning to have self compassion and acceptance is also an integral part of the work that we will to together.
I look forward to hearing your story.”Shannon
