So you're having a baby, but rather than feeling elated, you feel overwhelmed, anxious, sad, and isolated. You may feel guilty, like something is wrong with you experiencing these difficult feelings, and having negative thoughts. Please know that these feelings can be managed, and that you are not alone! Help is available and can make a significant difference in your life and in your baby's life. I work with new parents who are struggling with the adjustment to parenthood, feelings of guilt, depression and anxiety, and the loneliness one can feel when caring for a baby.
I am a certified counselor for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, including depression and anxiety during pregnancy, postpartum depression and anxiety, OCD, and postpartum psychosis.
In addition to my specialty in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, I am also a psychoanalyst who has received extensive training in dealing with attachment issues, trauma, and interpersonal relationships difficulties. My clients are usually highly functional people who are aware they have unmet potential. They seem to feel stuck for reasons they cannot explain, and need help meeting their potential and living fuller and better lives through self understanding.
I love people and I am genuinely interested in getting to know you and being able to help you!
I offer psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for individuals in Irvine all throughout the Orange County area.
I hold a doctorate degree in Psychology (emphasis in Psychoanalysis), and I am a California licensed marriage and family therapist (MFC #48102).
My practice is located in Irvine, in the spectrum area, with multiple freeway access (5, 405, 133).
