I have expertise in working with survivors of trauma and clients with medical conditions. Many clients with whom I work benefit from short-term therapy to resolve specific stressors. Others manage illnesses including Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety with longer-term treatment. I often collaborate with the other therapists at ThriveAgain to provide holistic care.
As a mother myself, I enjoy working with individuals transitioning to parenthood, and have received training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders from Postpartum Support International. Parenthood is arguably the most life-altering and all-consuming role you will ever have. Relationships, career paths, and priorities shift to make room for your growing family. Pregnancy or preparing for baby’s arrival, and the postpartum period up through your child’s first birthday can be particularly stressful (yet exciting!).
It is often helpful to work through some of the issues that arise during this time, especially if you are struggling with a postpartum anxiety or mood disorder. Through our work together, I will help you prepare for parenthood before your child arrives, assist you in the postpartum period, and engage you in the ongoing work it often takes to stay emotionally and physically healthy as you return to the office or adjust to staying at home full-time.
