Are you expecting a child or already a parent? Many soon to be/new parents wonder, what are the baby blues and how are they different than postpartum depression? What are perinatal mood and anxiety disorders? Do men also suffer with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders? Do you ever wonder if you are doing a good job as a parent and/or is your baby/child doing alright? We will most likely parent the way we were parented unless we are aware of the changes we want to make with our children. Do you have questions about what to expect with pregnancy or parenthood? I can help you explore these questions and support your journey.
The journey from pregnancy to birth to parenthood can bring a range of emotions, fears and expectations. I specialize in women's issues, life transitions, relationship challenges, pregnancy issues and perinatal mental health disorders. I offer a collaborative, therapeutic partnership that utilizes your strengths to address your struggles.
To Moms: Do you feel anxious, worried and/or unable to rest? Are you emotional, crying, agitated and/or feeling rage? Are you having intrusive thoughts? Is this experience not what you were expecting? Are you feeling guilty/ashamed? Not all moms feel immediately happy or attached to their babies. You are NOT alone! There is hope and treatment.
