About

Even happily anticipated life events can challenge your coping skills, resulting in feelings of overwhelm or confusion. An objective ear and a kind heart may be the support you need to help you regain your footing. I work with both men and women who have endured a difficult pregnancy or childbirth, or whose past may be affecting how they are experiencing pregnancy or parenting. Other areas of focus: Children experiencing grief and loss; Adolescents exploring gender, sexuality, autonomy, and next steps after high school; Helping professionals struggling with self-care; Graduate students balancing academic and personal life.
My training as a registered nurse AND a psychologist enables me to understand the physiology and medical lingo of your physical concerns with a unique insight into how even joyful events may unbalance your mind-body-spirit connection. I have been trained in assessing and treating maternal mental health concerns by Postpartum Support International.
I offer respectful curiosity, safe exploration, humor, and unconditional regard to help you navigate challenging life transitions on your way to healing. My work is influenced by my training in Humanistic-Existential, Jungian, and Buddhist psychologies. I apply the theory of Cultural Humility because I believe you are the expert on your life.

Catherine McGovern's Groups

Early Pregnancy Loss Support

From personal experience I know that losing a child early in pregnancy can feel isolating and confusing. I offer a small ongoing support group for those who have miscarried during their first trimester. Topics addressed: What happened?; How can I honor the memory of my child?; How do I grieve a child I never held?; What do I say to people who tell me "It's for the best"?; How long should I wait to try to get pregnant again?; What if I miscarry again?; I'm pregnant again, but I'm afraid to feel joyful.
