You are a woman who has been devastated by grief over pregnancy loss, infertility, or postpartum depression and anxiety. You desperately want to find someone to talk to about how alone and sad you feel. You feel heartbroken, ashamed, and angry lately. Your world has stopped while everyone else seems to be living their best life. You find yourself having the same fights with your partner over and over again. Society glamorizes pregnancy and motherhood which can make you feel even more alone and misunderstood. If you see one more pregnancy announcement or social media post about the happiness of motherhood, you might lose it! Your baby is important to you no matter how much time you have spent with them. You want to learn how to keep your baby’s memory alive. You want to learn how to experience happiness during this new transition to motherhood. You want to feel heard by someone without shame or judgment. You are not alone. As a woman, I have been there.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
During the first session, I will ask several questions to get to know you and your history better. We will also discuss what goals you want to work toward and discuss how I can help you meet your goals. As we work together, we will continue to discuss progress and get a feel for how helpful therapy has been for you. Clients who work with me generally find me to be compassionate and nonjudgmental. My ideal client is someone who is motivated and willing to practice skills outside of session.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I am trained in Maternal Mental Health from Postpartum Support International. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities ranging from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Trauma Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Therapy.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I work primarily with women who are struggling with infertility, perinatal depression and anxiety, pregnancy loss, and postpartum depression and anxiety.
