Perinatal Mental Health Therapy
Transform Your Pregnancy Experience: Compassionate Therapy for Moms-to-Be
As a therapist with specialized training in perinatal mental health and over two decades of clinical experience supporting moms, I understand the unique challenges that pregnancy can bring. As a mother of two now adult kids, I’ve lived through the ups and downs of pregnancy myself and know firsthand how emotional and overwhelming it can be.
Focusing on perinatal mental health, I provide evidence-based treatment incorporating mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and compassion to support moms-to-be. I understand that pregnancy can be challenging physically and emotionally, and my goal is to help you feel more in control, empowered, and fulfilled. We’ll work together to develop strategies to manage your symptoms and cope with the ups and downs of pregnancy. Then, focusing on mindfulness and compassion, we’ll create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your feelings, build resilience, and find the strength to navigate this transformative journey.
My experience working with moms has taught me that every woman’s journey is unique and that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to perinatal mental health. Therefore, I work with each client to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and concerns. Whether you’re experiencing anxiety about the delivery process, doubts about your parenting abilities, or just feeling overwhelmed by the changes in your body and life, I’m here to help.
Contact me today to learn more about how therapy can support you on this journey. Together, let’s transform your pregnancy experience into one that’s empowering and fulfilling.
