My clinical work centers around reproductive and perinatal psychology, including supporting people before, during, and after pregnancy, the postpartum period, birth trauma, pregnancy loss, termination, infertility, and navigating family building through Assisted Reproductive Technology (e.g. IVF), third-party reproduction (e.g. egg or sperm donation and surrogacy), adoption, and fertility preservation. I actively support LGBTQ individuals and families, including and as well as single parents and parents-to-be. 
 
I provide assessment, short-term and long-term psychotherapy, counseling, and coaching for adults struggling with depression, anxiety, relationships, career and social pressures, and life transitions. I also teach educational workshops, run trainings, and provide clinical consultation in the areas of reproductive and perinatal mental health.
 
From 2016-2018, I served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Counseling and Clinical Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University, where I built and taught a new master's level course on perinatal mental health.
