Every woman deserves to enjoy motherhood - I appreciate the opportunity to help women struggling with emotional symptoms feel better. Nothing is as fulfilling as when a new mom returns to my office, smiling, telling me how much more fun and gratifying motherhood is now that she is free of the symptoms that had plagued her.
Why should our clients choose you?
My approach maximizes mom's health and wellness while also minimizing risk of exposure to a fetus / future baby. Healthy mom leads to healthy baby and family. I strongly believe that my role is to provide information and to disseminate the most up to date literature and research so that my patients can make informed decisions that they feel comfortable with - my job is not to choose for you, but to give you the tools to decide what works best given your values and life goals. Furthermore, as a mom, I realize that there is no one right way to parent - the best option is what works for you and your family. I work with my patients and support them without judgment in advance of conception, during and after pregnancy and throughout the many stages of motherhood.
