Offering ONLINE sessions. It’s hard to be a woman! We feel like all the pressure is on us. We keep trying so hard to do it perfectly, but life still isn’t going the way we planned. We have the pressure of career, fertility, parenting, romantic relationships, time for a social life. There's all of that and then we notice the past we’ve been running from creeping up on us. It can be exhausting, not to mention overwhelming. And is anyone talking about how hard getting pregnant can be? It's supposed to just happen easily, but month after month the pregnancy tests keep coming back negative. It feels like our bodies are failing us.

My practice focuses on fertility / pregnancy / postpartum (incl. new dads & LGBTQ families), grief (more specifically early mother loss, and pregnancy loss), and relationship issues. Throughout our lives, we're constantly relating to one another, and building new experiences from these relationships. Unfortunately, relationships can also often feel unfulfilling, or make us feel neglected somehow. They can bring on feelings of loss and disconnection. Then, life in general starts to feel unfulfilling. This can be changed. Psychotherapy, where the fit between patient / therapist is right, can be an immensely powerful tool.

Pregnancy, Prenatal, Postpartum Therapists

What are the most effective ways to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns?

The most effective way to address pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum concerns is by finding a therapist who has prior experience helping other patients overcome the challenge being faced. For example, a marriage and family therapist may have experience helping couples adjust to their new relationship dynamic. An anxiety specialist may have experience helping with phobias or illness anxiety related to the child’s health. A depression specialist may have experience treating postpartum depression.

When should I seek treatment for prenatal or postpartum concerns?

Pregnancy and the postpartum period involve intense physical and mental changes; a degree of upset and instability is normal. However, if these changes impair daily functioning, it may be time to seek help. This distinction is pertinent for postpartum depression: A period of teariness, irritability, and distress is difficult but normal in the one to two weeks after childbirth (sometimes called the “baby blues.”) But if feelings of sadness and hopelessness persist beyond that period, the person should seek treatment.

How do I manage worries during pregnancy or the postnatal period?

A therapist can help patients develop the tools they need to manage anxieties during or after pregnancy. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help people identify and reframe harmful patterns of thought, and change their behaviors. Other techniques and skills can allow people to develop acceptance, psychological flexibility, self-compassion, communication skills, and more.

Are there specific medications for postpartum depression?

In 2019, the FDA approved the first medication designed to treat postpartum depression. The medication is called brexanolone and is delivered intravenously by a medical professional over the course of a few days. However, typical antidepressants, which are more accessible, can also treat postpartum depression. The disorder is often best treated through a combination of medication and therapy.
