"Pregnancy or newborns may bring about feelings of worry combined with increased anxiety or depression. There could be intrusive thoughts or repeated patterns of behaviors that feel like OCD that is difficult to manage alone. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and postpartum could foster mood swings, increased irritability, difficulty sleeping, sadness, and anger. It may be overwhelming at times and feel as if there is no way out. I work with parents and young adults who are new to adulting. College and work are difficult. I have an extensive and broad range of clinical experience working with parents, individuals and families."

We can also begin to explore how your past experiences may be influencing you today. Often times we know that our upbringing was not maybe the "best" and as a result we can feel less than fully appreciated and un-validated.
