Announcement icon I am continuing to provide perinatal support via video and teletherapy.
Have you had... fertility issues? Pregnancy Loss? Pregnancy or Postpartum Anxiety and/or Depression? Birth trauma? A baby in the NICU? Pregnancy complications? Do you feel alone? Do you feel like you are not yourself anymore? Do you feel like this is not what you expected? I am here to support you during this chapter in your life. You are not alone. In therapy, we will process your story and discuss ways for you to cope during this life transition. We will develop strategies that are centred around your needs. Let me help you build your circle of support.
Perinatal mental health issues can impact anyone, and they are more common than you may think. 1 in 5 women experience pregnancy or postpartum mental health issues, as well as 1 in 10 men. We hear frequently about postpartum depression, however postpartum anxiety is also very prevalent. I understand, and am here for you.
Babies are welcome! (No toddlers please).
