Meet Destiny

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Certified Perinatal Mental Health Specialist

I have always had a passion for helping other people and knew from a young age that I wanted to be a therapist. I received my undergraduate degree from Eastern Connecticut State University and my Master's degree from the University of Nebraska. I received my certification as a Medical Family Therapist after feeling compelled to work with families and individuals undergoing complex or difficult medical illnesses, surgeries or experiences. I became certified as a perinatal mental health expert, as well, turning my focus to how I can help support moms (and dads) who have had anxiety or depression during the perinatal and post partum time period, overcome birth/pregnancy trauma and redefine their life as a parent.

I have over 10 years experience in the field and have been working with clients facing difficult life transitions, anxiety, depression, post partum/perinatal mental health disorders, family and life stresses.

 

I am a wife, a mother, a NICU mom and a survivor of perinatal/post partum trauma, a compassionate individual, and a passionate therapist. I have always been drawn towards helping others. Events that have taken place in my life have shaped me into the person and therapist that I am today. It became my mission that no one should have to encounter the hardships and difficult experiences of life alone and that no mother should feel dismissed, judged or minimized for any of the difficulties that she has experienced on her journey towards or in motherhood.

I strive to create an open and non-judgmental environment for clients to feel supported and to begin working towards their goals. I work very hard to ensure that my clients feel comfortable and feel connected to me, as I believe that this is the cornerstone to a beneficial therapist-client relationship. I not only bring knowledge and experience into every session that I conduct, but I bring my own personality, sense of humor, empathy and an overall willingness to help others to overcome the difficultly that they are currently facing. Together, we can help you to overcome any obstacle.
