I’m a proud mother to two amazing children, Connor and Emma. I was older when I had kids: age 38 when I had my first child and 42 when I had my second child. Although I love being a mom, it’s difficult to continuously focus on my children and meet their needs more often than my own but this is the path I take every day.
As a licensed clinical social worker, I specialize in perinatal/early childhood and family mental health. I apply positive parenting skills with my own children and have seen positive results. In addition to practicing office-based therapy, I teach parenting classes, lead support groups and conduct home visits to coach parents with behavior modification and/or attachment issues. Juggling self-care and reconnecting with myself as a professional and a woman is an amazing journey.
