Focusing on what truly matters
Mental health issues are the most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth. Many of us think "this is not how I thought it would be" at some point during the perinatal period. The stress of becoming a parent can cause us to experience anxiety, (sometimes scary) intrusive and/or obsessive thoughts, relationship conflict, and communication breakdown during the first weeks, months, and years of parenting. My approach is warm, mindful, and client-centered. We will work together toward helping you gain the skills necessary to overcome the challenges you are facing.
I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and intrusive thoughts during the perinatal period and beyond. Services are provided in California. I provide both online perinatal psychotherapy as well as in-home psychotherapy for residents of Marin County, CA. My goal is to help you better manage your symptoms and emerge with newfound clarity and presence. Anxiety and depression can steal the joy from parenting. We work together to bring joy back into your life.
Although you may be facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, therapy offers a non-judgmental space for you to gain new insights that can dramatically change your quality of life for the better. I see it happen almost every day. There is a tremendous amount of hope for you. You do not need to keep feeling the way you are feeling.
