I live and work in Portland, Oregon with my husband and two children. Since 1987 I have had a private counseling practice with a specialty in depression, anxiety, and creative process and performance. In 1994, I added a special focus in perinatal mood disorders after recovering from postpartum depression and anxiety, and since then have provided counseling and consultation, and training to professionals in PMDs and recovery. I am the founding director and a Clinical Consultant for Oregon’s Baby Blues Connection, a parent-to-parent support organization that I helped form in 1994. I work with providers, schools, communities, and hospitals to develop and provide PMD training curriculum and services. I provide consultation and training for others who are developing their own perinatal support services, and I love to help them formulate the particular model of support that can be sustainable in their local community. I am committed to listening, learning, and improving our capacity to serve all families who need our help. I am extremely proud to be part of PSI and to work with such courageous and passionate people around the world.Return to List
