MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH
Trying to conceive, pregnancy, and motherhood can be some of the hardest times in a woman’s life. Perhaps you are navigating infertility or are enduring the heart-wrenching pain of a miscarriage. Or you may be pregnant and struggling with anxiety and depression, finding it difficult or impossible to ease into or enjoy your pregnancy. You may be a new mom and trying to figure out how to juggle this new, complicated, and uncharted chapter of your life. You may be surprised by some of the thoughts and feelings you are having and harshly judging yourself as a mom. I am an advocate of supporting women and their mental health, and believe you should not have to go through these challenges by yourself.
How I can help
I have completed my training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and perinatal mental health psychotherapy via Postpartum Support International and offer a warm, nonjudgmental space where you can share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Through our work together, I will help validate whatever you may be going through, whether it's grief over the loss of your pregnancy, your struggles to conceive, or the complexities that come with being a mom. I will help you focus on how to take care of your emotional and physical needs, and will offer tools and skills to set you on the path to healing.
I also understand that this season of life can be challenging for women and their partners, and offer couples therapy for couples experiencing the difficulties that can arise from trying to conceive, pregnancy, and parenthood.
Please reach out to me today to see how I can support you.
