Therapy for Pregnancy and Post-Partum Concerns

Specializing in the traumas and challenges of infertility and pregnancy arising when life doesn't go as planned.

Societal norms tend to portray pregnancy and motherhood as 

unquestionably blissful experiences for women.  However, it can be common for women to struggle through periods of adjustment as they move into this new role.  Pregnancy and motherhood can be stressful and overwhelming.  Complications and losses can arise that cause additional stress, grief, and confusion.  Therapy can offer support and new skills to help ease the transition into motherhood.

       Hardships often prepare ordinary people 

 for an extraordinary destiny.

Perinatal mood disorders are common and treatable

- C.S. Lewis

While it is normal to face mild mood changes following the birth of a child, 15% to 20% of women develop more serious symptoms of mood disorders, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, or OCD.  These symptoms can arise at any point during pregnancy or within a year of delivery.  If you are struggling, know that it is not your fault.  Know that with skilled treatment, symptoms will significantly improve, and you will fully recover.  

Some reasons to seek therapy:

> Overwhelming emotions such as sadness, anxiety, anger, or hopelessness


> Trouble eating or sleeping

> Having trouble bonding with or lacking interest in your baby


> Feeling out of control or not like yourself

> Repetitive thoughts of harm coming to your baby that are hard to shake

> Persistent thoughts that you're a bad mom


Sadness about a birth experience that was not as you'd hoped

> Traumatic birth experiences

> Intense loneliness and/or pulling away from others
