Prenatal and Postpartum Support
If you feel you are struggling while pregnant, this can be an expression of mental illness or can be just normal and being heard can help. It can just be a frightening and emotional process. It is perfectly natural and acceptable to need a little support, and I am here to support you. You are not alone in this even if you feel like you have been or are.
Perhaps you have had your baby, and are not feeling happy the way you think you should. As an expert in perinatal and postpartum mental conditions and trauma, I can help you figure out if it is merely the stress typical of being a new parent, or if it is something more serious such as hormone-triggered depression, anxiety, or OCD that needs more substantial intervention.
If things were smooth through your pregnancy but your birth did not go as planned, or was outright traumatizing, there are things we can do to ease symptoms. Let me be your partner in finding your way, supporting and guiding you.
Pregnancy and birth trauma can be very hard on fathers as well. If it is impacting your relationship, or one of you is expressing symptoms of trauma such as anxious behavior, hypervigilance, flashbacks, discomfort towards doctors or hospitals, or you are just holding a lot or feel upset with what was supposed to be a beautiful experience, let me help you process your experiences.
If you don’t have the support of someone who can take your baby so you can attend therapy, I will work with you, possibly even seeing you with your baby present.
