Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW
I founded Maternal Health Niagara ( est. 2017) to build a circle of support for individuals and families during the reproductive period and beyond. My clinical focus is infertility, surrogacy, pregnancy and infant loss, birth trauma, postpartum anxiety, and healing from childhood trauma. I often coach people through "guilt" and coping with the mental load of parenting. I enjoy working with birth and healthcare professionals as they navigate the intricacies of the field, and I often see other therapists. During my perinatal journey of pregnancy loss and pregnancy complications, my lived experience sparked my passion for maternal mental health. I had hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which affected my physical and emotional wellness. From my challenges during the perinatal period, I recognized the service gap and was determined to build a circle of support for others. Combining lived experience and extensive professional skills allows me to bring my clients a unique clinical lens of empathy and validation. I am down-to-earth, nurturing and intuitive, with a realistic and accepting therapeutic style.

After the delivery of your child, the body continues to go through changes, physiologically, emotionally, psychologically, and socially. These changes may feel confusing, overwhelming, and undesirable. Intense emotions of joy, anxiety, fear, sadness, and happiness may be felt all at once. The lack of sleep, pain associated with breastfeeding, lack of support, crying frequently are all symptoms that are important to talk about. Dads can also experience depression.

Although it is normal to have what is colloquially known as the “baby blues” following the birth of a child, this tends to naturally go away not too long after. PPD can start during the pregnancy to one year after the birth of a child, where the sufferer will show the typical effects of depression which affects their mood; the way they feel about themselves, how they relate to others, and how they interact with the rest of the world. Ultimately, PPD affects people from many different walks of life, regardless of the ease or difficulty of the pregnancy, whether they are a first-time parent or have other children, whether they are married or not, and regardless of socioeconomic status, education, and cultural background.
