Trauma Therapy for Pregnancy Struggles
Trying to get pregnant is difficult enough — and multiple miscarriages, infertility concerns, and the IVF process can make it even harder. But don’t let these traumatic events knock you down. Get the support you need from someone who can help you heal.
Serving Women In Houston, Austin & Dallas TX
You’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while now, but things just aren’t going the way you thought they would. It feels like your body’s working against you when you need it most.
Each month you try to conceive, you’re crushed by disappointment, frustration, anger, and sadness when only one blue line shows.
You can’t figure out what you’re doing wrong. You’ve done everything your doctor ordered, gotten multiple tests to see what’s happening, and done endless research on the subject. And now your thoughts seem to run on a loop in your head all the time.
Why isn’t this working?
What am I doing wrong?
Why am I such a failure?
Am I not woman enough?
And the answer to these questions? No, you haven’t done anything wrong, you are woman enough, and you’re not a failure. You’ve simply experienced a traumatic event — and it’s time to talk to someone who’s helped others just like you.
Because going through the pregnancy process can be difficult, and you may not have the support you need. This is why I’m a therapist specializing in trauma therapy for women affected by these painful issues.
My goal is to provide guidance and support so you can:
Learn to manage your stress and anxiety.
Heal, move forward, and find peace after traumatic experiences.
Reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Manage your emotional response after an upsetting event.
I know what it’s like to experience trauma and loss — and go through hardships that feel like you’ll never recover from. But you’re not alone.
I’m here to help you heal during your painful moments because you deserve to feel seen and heard. I’ll help guide you towards healing over time and at your own pace. Ready to get started?
We’re Here When the “Not Yet” Feels Like
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

How Does Trauma
Working with a trauma therapist can feel scary and uncertain. You might be wondering…
What should I say to her?
How will this help?
Can trauma therapy really “fix” me?
These are normal questions, especially if it’s your first time working with a therapist. But I want to reassure you that I’m here to hold space for you — so you can feel safe opening up about what you’re going through.
To do this, I created a simple process to help you move through this as smoothly as possible:
1. Assessment Phase — During our first one or two sessions, I’ll ask you about your life, what you’re going through, and what you hope to accomplish. The more I learn about you, the better I can understand where you’re at and how I can help.
2. Observation Phase — In conjunction with the Assessment Phase, I’ll listen and learn from what you share. My goal is to look for common threads, negative patterns, and areas of improvement that’ll help you achieve the goals you talked about during your first couple of sessions.
3. Action Phase — After our first few sessions, I’ll ask questions and start conversations around the areas I believe we need to focus on. These in-depth discussions aim to show you alternate ways of viewing an event and present a new way of thinking about it. You’ll be steering the direction of the conversation while I guide you through how to achieve what you want.
My goal with this process is to help you identify what you’re going through and achieve your goals. So you can start your healing journey and find peace after your traumatic events.
When it comes to working with a trauma therapist, you want someone who’s qualified to help — not just someone who gets what you’re going through. This is why I’ve spent time training and learning techniques that are effective tools in our sessions together, like:
Mindfulness-Based CBT — this is my go-to approach when I’m working with my clients. This type of therapy focuses on meditative and mindfulness practices, so you can cultivate a lasting inner peace in your daily life.
EMDR — this is one of my specialties and a technique I’ve trained in extensively. With my guidance, this technique will help you process a traumatic past event, so it doesn’t have a hold on your present thoughts and emotions anymore.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) — this is another approach I use a lot, especially when my clients experience intense emotions. With this approach, you’ll learn how to regulate your emotions, accept what you’re going through, and feel more safe and secure with yourself.
Gottman Method — this is the perfect technique if you and your spouse are struggling with your relationship. Using this method can help you improve your communication, connection, and intimacy with your partner.
As a trauma therapist, I use these and other techniques to help you process your thoughts and feelings about an event. With my guidance and support, you’ll be well on your way to healing.
My Philosophy, Approach, & Style
I’m a trauma therapist and life coach (read more in my bio). I’m passionate about connecting and supporting women experiencing miscarriages, pregnancy loss, reproductive concerns, health issues, or the IVF process.
I’ve gone through similar struggles in terms of trauma, hardship, and loss. So my goal is to help you:
Process your emotions around difficult experiences.
Increase your love, trust, and acceptance of yourself.
Manage your stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms.
Start the healing process after a traumatic loss or event.
With my guidance, you can rediscover your inner peace and joy — and learn skills (like meditation and mindfulness) you can use in your daily life.

Although my primary focus is helping women struggling with the pregnancy process, I’m also able to assist others on their own healing journey. As a trauma therapist, I’m trained to work with women and teens going through difficult life situations or transitions, such as:
Starting your college journey or your first job after college.
Becoming a mother and parent for the first time.
Balancing your roles as a spouse, mother, and career woman.
Struggling to manage your anxiety, stress, or burnout.
Going through a divorce or difficult breakup.
These are just a few of the situations I can help with, though there are many other moments that may have caused you to experience trauma or loss in your life. So if you’re ready to work with someone trained in trauma therapy, reach out to me today.
