What Is M​aternal Mental Health?​

Maternal Mental Health is the individual process of accepting, understanding, and growing with the constant flow of changes which the process of growing a family creates. 

How can counseling help?

Read below and ask yourself if you identify with any these statements:

"Since having my baby, I don't feel like myself. I have dark and scary thoughts, can't sleep, and am constantly on edge. I'm starting to think I'm going crazy. "

"Having a child has made me reflect back on my own childhood. There are some things I thought didn't bother me anymore, but I guess they still do."

"My partner and I argue about everything.  I'm starting to wonder if we belong together. Having a child changed everything."

"Maybe having a child was a big mistake. I feel like a terrible father"

Counseling is effective  with many different situations and life events that focus around the theme of parenthood.  While many woman seek out counseling to assist with Postpartum Depression and Anxiety (PPD & PPA), I am also experienced and have training in helping individuals with the following events-


Infertility/Difficulty with becoming pregnant, medically assisted pregnancy


Foster parenthood

Grief and Loss



Birth Trauma

Transitional Changes (such as an a young adult leaving the home) 

Parent/Child Relationships

In law related stress

Teenage Pregnancy


Have a concern that isn't listed, or wanting help for something outside of the parenthood arena? I can help with that, too.
