Cathy Dore', LMFT specializes in women's mental health, particularly around issues pertaining to pregnancy and childbirth. She served as Marketing & Public Relations Chair for Postpartum Support International, is a member of LA County Maternal Mental Health Task Force and is a clinical member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. She is the co-founder of The Motherhood Consortium, an inclusive community of professionals who meet monthly with the common goal of providing care and nurturing for mothers, families and their babies.

I specialize in women's mental health, with an emphasis on the developmental stage between 20 and 30 years old and the transitional time during women's reproductive years -- between 30 and 50 years old. Much of my practice focuses on the assessment and treatment of Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders.

I also deal with other pregnancy and birth related concerns like infertility and pregnancy loss. I also have experience with multiple births and the unique perspective that comes with parenting both singleton children along with their twin siblings.
