Areas of Expertise

Women's Issues

The experience of a woman is something special, something beautiful. The feminine essence is creative, nurturing, and powerful. We live in a culture which impedes the development of women, systematically hurts women, and tries to silence women’s power. I am here to help women to connect to their power, grow esteem, feel comfortable in their beauty, and to find their voice. There are a variety experiences unique to the female body. These experiences can be beautiful, challenging, painful, and transformative. I support women through concerns related to reproductive health, hormones, and cycles of birth and loss. 


Although my expertise is in the experience of cis-gendered women, it is important to note that trans-women are women, too! I recognize that each gender expression has their own unique set of challenges. All genders are welcome at Pathos Psychotherapy. 

Perinatal Mental Health

Pregnancy and postpartum is a journey! It is a highly emotional time as you adjust to your changing body, relationship, and life. For some birthing persons old traumas may surface. Some might experience a traumatic birth. Everyone will agree that being a parent is hard, and sleep deprivation makes everything worse. It is common to experience mood disturbance after giving birth including worsening depression or anxiety. No matter what your experience is, you deserve support along the way. 


Loss touches us all. In this life we will each have many griefs. You might be mourning a death of a loved one, an end of a relationship or change in health. I know this time is deeply painful. It is often confusing  as you figure out life after this loss. I know it's hard right now, but it will get better. It will be easier with support. Grief has been one of the most profound teachers in my life. It would be an honor to help you through.


Almost every person experiences some form of trauma in their life. For some, the resulting effect may be Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Women are twice as likely as men to develop PTSD after a traumatic experience. Symptoms of PTSD can be uncomfortable, and at times scary. Your trauma is something you can gain control over, and doesn’t have to control your life. Through our work together you will learn the coping skills you need to manage the symptoms of PTSD, regain a sense of safety, grieve and reprocess your trauma so that it no longer has a substantial hold on you.
