Maternal Mental

Rochester​, PLLC​​







Who Am I?


Hi, My Name is Jenny.


More Professionally:      Jennifer Price, LMHC, PMH-C

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Perinatal Mental Health Credential 

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, with a Certification in Perinatal Mental Health. I absolutely love what I do.  My passion for this niche of counseling was strongly fueled by my own struggle with Post Partum Depression.  I learned from talking to others, my own research, and professional trainings that what I was experiencing happens- and it happens A LOT, to a lot of people.  I learned I was not alone, and my goal is to provide you with that same comfort.  I have worked as a community clinic therapist, inpatient social worker, clinical supervisor, site manager, and psychiatric evaluator, in addition to my current practice. 


I have two children, ages 5 and 7.  I love gardening, watching HGTV, and some reality shows that I am too embarrassed to name.


My favorite counseling motto is, "no one comes here for a good time." If you are scared or worried to start counseling, that is normal and it is okay.


Counseling is hard.  It can be provoking and emotional.  I will be with you every step of the way.   You are not alone.


Please do not be frightened to reach out for help.

Types of Therapy

Individual Therapy is the most common form of treatment. After an initial meeting, we decide together how often we should meet based on your needs, time availability, and comfort level. Most people begin by meeting once a week. I generally utilize two different talk therapy approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy.  I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).   To learn about EMDR, click here to watch a video:

Birth Trauma Group Workshop: Did you find your experience of bringing your child into this world to have been scary, upsetting or traumatizing? Do you constantly think about your child's birth date and feel sadness, disappointment, anger or anxiety? Was your baby placed into medical care that prevented you the early bonding process you desired? If you identify with any of these sentiments, you may find relief from joining this 3 part group workshop.

In this workshop, you will:

-Process your experience to understand how it impacted you emotionally. You will receive validation that you are not "overreacting" and that the outcome (your baby) does not negate what you went through or how you feel about it.

-Receive education about what trauma is, and how to cope with it

-Learn about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and have the opportunity "re-write" your story in way that feels less upsetting.


Please reach out to find out about dates for this workshop.


Motherhood Support Group: See "The Motherhood Experience" for information on this group, which runs in 8 week cycles. 


 As appropriate, I will consult with your PCP, OB/GYN, or other professionals. 

I'm ready to talk- what are my options?

We can meet in person, or via telehealth.  Due to COVID-19, if we are meeting in person, we will both be wearing a mask.  My office has taken steps to be as safe as possible, which are available upon request. 


Telehealth is available for those living in New York. It involves us using an app, such as DOXY.ME, or a another video platform to engage in regularly scheduled counseling sessions. In order to participate in Telehealth, you must place a credit card on file and complete some simple paperwork prior to us starting. 


During our first meeting, you will receive all legal and privacy related paperwork.  This includes a counseling agreement, consent forms and other information you will find helpful.  If you are participating in telehealth, you will need to complete the paperwork prior to our scheduled appointment. 


When reaching out for help, many people want to know if I accept insurance.  I do not accept insurance, but am able to provide you a bill which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.  Please make sure if you wish to do this, you contact your company and inquire about their status of using "Out of Network Providers."


Cost of service is $125 for 60 minute session.

Payment Accepted Includes:

Cash, Check, and Credit/HSA/Debit Card, which is processed through IVY PAY, a HIPAA compliant service.  Receipt available upon request. 

 

Payment is due on the date of service. 

All Telehealth Sessions require a card on file prior to the session. 




In Home Services

Due to constraints such as a recent C-Section, lack of child care, or for other reasons,  leaving the house can not only be anxiety provoking, but can be physically impossible.  For reasons such as this and others, I offer in your home therapy.  The cost of in home treatment is $140 for 60 minutes.  Rates may be adjusted as needed due to distance of travel.
