Are you fearful about pregnancy, birth or motherhood? Is this season of motherhood not what you envisioned? Are you struggling to keep it together as a mom? *You are not alone* Maternal Minds Counseling can help. The truth is that 50-80% of women experience the baby blues and 1 out of 5 experience a mood or anxiety disturbance in the perinatal period (before or after pregnancy). Sometimes planning, expecting, new or experienced moms need extra support through this transition. The therapists at Maternal Minds treat women and families from preconception through parenting.

I specialize in treating a whole host of disorders that stem from low neurotransmitter levels, namely serotonin and dopamine. Such disorders include depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, IBS, Crohn's disease, tremor, restless leg syndrome and more. Treatment is very holistic, it involves scientifically administering precursors such as 5-htp, tyrosine, cysteine and l-dopa which the brain uses to produce serotonin and dopamine naturally. It is extremely effective with none of the downside of prescription medication.

My practice supports authentic living. I hope to join with persons and offer my understanding of where they are. Such genuine contact encourages awareness of possibilities that otherwise remain just out of reach. Relationship is central; foundations of healthy relationships include trust, respect, honesty and risk-taking. Persons I sit with commonly say I am supportive and challenging, non-judgmental and honest. Persons with previous therapy experience say that our play together is "different" than their other therapy relationships, perhaps because I fundamentally believe persons are good and have inherent power to grow and change.

Change and growth may feel unwelcome, yet you might find that your usual ways of coping aren’t holding up like they use to. Managing stress and constantly feeling restless is exhausting. Sessions aim to explore formative life experiences and culture to better understand the factors that impact you now and contribute to who you are today. Empathy and self-compassion are the basis of my therapeutic approach where we will focus on building a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. My current focus is working with clients experiencing the life stage transition into adulthood (18-30 y/o) and those reconciling childhood trauma.

Too many of us keep our issues hidden and secret for too long. We are not sure where to turn or what the future holds. Stress, anxiety, depression, and existential angst often hold us back from living our best lives.

Hello! My name is Emily. I am a licensed couple, family and child therapist. I have a lot of toys and games in my office for my kiddo clients so I always get asked if I see adults too. Yes, I see people of all ages! My background is in human development and the ways in which attachment, traumas, and other significant life experiences shape how our automatic nervous systems respond to environmental triggers, brain structure, and behaviors at each different life cycle stage. Anxiety, anger, mood shifts, loneliness, loss, detachment, fear of trust, chronic illness, people with higher sensitivities- these are some of my top areas.

My ideal client would consist of an individual who struggles with a sense of self, mainly adolescents and young adults. They may have a pessimistic sense of self or the people around them. They may struggle with friendships, relationships, school/job tasks, or even family. In addition, they have a hard time balancing these daily tasks while creating time for self-love/care. All of these tasks may become very stressful hence some suicidal ideation may surface and the client may struggle to process what it actually means.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
