Adjustment to Parenthood, Postpartum Anxiety, Postpartum Depression, Relationship Challenges, Identity Formation, Clinical Supervision

I created Bloom Maternal Therapy out of a deep need that I felt as a first time mom for increased recognition, support and coping skills for my postpartum challenges. I kept asking myself, “where is the support for the mom?” and felt really alone in my struggle to adjust to my new mom role.

Fast forward several years and BLOOM was born! It’s my mission that all women and their partners in SLO County will know where to turn to when they are needing a place to process their perinatal experiences, receive support for their mental wellness and learn practical coping strategies. Let’s face it, becoming a parent is a monumental adjustment and deserves a group practice on the Central Coast that is dedicated to this phase of life.

In the therapy room, I enjoy using a solution focused approach with my clients, building from their strengths and what is most ‘front and center’ for them during each session. I believe that my clients know themselves the best and it’s my job to help them find new coping tools and ways of thinking that best serve them. I love it when my clients experience a full range of emotions in my office; sometimes laughing over a lighthearted moment while also holding space for a good cry or emotional release.

It’s my hope that whichever therapist you meet with at BLOOM you will walk away feeling seen, heard, encouraged and hopeful. We are honored that you have trusted us with your story!

What Brings Me A Sense Of Ease

Outside of my role at BLOOM, you can find me hiking with my hubby, playing at local parks with my two active boys, taking hot yoga classes, wine tasting, traveling with my family or taking in a Sunday nap. I feel so grateful to do what I love in a community that I love on the Central Coast!
