Welcome to the Lakefront Psychology Blog page!

This blog is designed to share my expertise about issues related to mental health, perinatal issues, relationships, wellness, and parenting.  I choose my topics based on the common concerns I hear in the therapy office as well as the broader community.  I hope these blog posts help you understand yourself and the people you love better and perhaps teach a few new skills that help you experience greater wellness.
