Reproductive Mental Health

Becoming a parent is a roller coaster ride, from trying to conceive or adopt, to bringing baby home, to the first day of preschool and beyond. The postpartum transition to parenthood can come with unexpected challenges, and can throw our identities, our relationships, and our careers for a loop.

Investing in your mental health now will reap rewards for you and your family for years to come. In our work together, I bring my experience as a parent and my professional knowledge of perinatal mental health, child development, and parenting to our work in order to help smooth the ride, build your confidence, and feel like yourself again. I will help you find more joy in the mix as well.

Therapy for expecting and postpartum parents can address:

  • Coping with pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period¬†
  • Fertility challenges¬†
  • Decisions about adoption or single parenting
  • Managing emotions when life with a newborn is not what you expected
  • Bonding with your baby while staying connected to your partner
  • Preventing and managing postpartum depression and anxiety
  • Recovery from traumatic birth experiences
  • Regaining a sense of identity when becoming a parent complicates your career
  • Finding work / life balance, including making decisions about childcare and your career

Telehealth and in-office therapy are both available for your convenience. And, yes!, you are welcome to bring your baby to therapy.

Reproductive Mental Health

It is normal for post-partum parents to experience some mood swings (“baby blues”), fatigue, and overwhelm to go along with the dirty diapers and first smiles. It’s a big adjustment for all.

However, 1 in 7 moms and 1 in 10 dads are affected by post-partum depression. Therapy can help to prevent and treat challenges associated with the transition to having a new baby at home.

And calling all new dads: This is a big adjustment for you too. Therapy can help!
