Maternal Mental Health

Talk to someone who gets it.
Virtual therapy for the modern mom
Motherhood is hard. Talking about it shouldn't be.

Motherhood can be hard, but you are not alone! Attending counseling for Maternal Mental Health is a great place to feel seen, supported, and understood.

 

Feelings of being overwhelmed or uncertain are common in all stages of parenting, and women face both physical and emotional difficulties through the process. Even up to a year after having a child, you may be facing challenges such as postpartum difficulties and would benefit from attending counseling.

 

Maternal Mental Health counseling helps address a variety of parental challenges by promoting emotional support and regulation, stress management, and self-care practices.

 

My personalized and collaborative approach allows us to tailor your counseling experience to your specific needs. I am here to help you navigate life’s transitional hardships, develop positive coping skills, and improve overall well-being for both you and your family.

What if I am not a Mother?

Many of the challenges listed above can also be faced by individuals who are not mothers. Fathers and life-partners can also experience difficulties relating to parenthood including increased stress, anxiety, and feelings of being overwhelmed. My counseling services are open to anyone who identifies as a parent or pregnant person and is wanting to find support in navigating the frustrations and hardships of your current season of life. If you are wondering if my services would be a good fit for you, I encourage you to contact me at the bottom of this page and schedule a free 15-minute consultation.
