Therapists Specializing in Pregnancy, Perinatal, Postpartum Mental Health in Denver

The perinatal period refers to the duration of a woman’s pregnancy as well as the weeks and months following birth. Although the time leading up to and following a baby’s birth is often joyful, the perinatal period can also come with mental health challenges for both mothers and fathers. Postpartum depression is perhaps the best-known perinatal mental health condition, but psychological and emotional reactions vary widely and can occur at any time before, during, or after pregnancy. Some amount of anxiety and stress is a normal part of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting, but when these conditions become especially frequent or intense, they can have an adverse effect on an individual’s wellbeing.

Many parents struggling with perinatal mental health challenges find it helpful to seek help from a trained therapist who can help them process their experiences and cope with the emotions of having a baby. Though therapists differ in their approaches to perinatal mental health challenges, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal psychotherapy are among the most effective and commonly used modalities. Therapists can help explore the challenges experienced by new parents, provide guidance to modify unhelpful thoughts, and help clients develop or foster social support and relationships.

I am so glad you're here! I want you to know that you are not crazy- you are sensitive in a traumatic world. So many of the experiences we have as women get downplayed by our culture and, therefore, are not supported in a way that facilitates mental health. Over time, these can accumulate and manifest as anxiety, rage, depression, and disconnection. This is why it is so important to rest into healing support and address life transitions and losses as they happen, so that you can show up wholeheartedly in your beautiful life!

Welcome.

In our work together,

1. We will start by learning about who and what matters most to you: You are unique and so should be your treatment.

2. We then explore what has gotten in the way of living the life you envision for yourself: Life gets complicated, I get it. Let's sort it out, together.

3. We practice being mindful and stepping into the present moment with openness and self-compassion: There is a lot of richness in the here and now, let me show you how to craft an inherently kind present-moment practice.

4. We chart your path forward. We will find out what steps (big and small) you need to take in order to live a life that is congruent with your deepest values: Deep breath, bold moves. We'll make changes in a planned and compassionate way. I'll work with you step-by-step until you're ready to sail on your own.

Just beginning your search shows you have the courage to take that next step towards meaningful change. You are wanting something better for yourself.

“I deserve this," “It’s my fault,” “I’ll never be good enough,” "I will never get through this".

These messages isolate us, and can make us feel hopeless about making changes. You may feel like you have to handle this alone. You don't.

No one is meant to do this work alone.

I believe that for most of us, it takes support from another person to work through, heal, grow, and accept challenges life has given us.

Everyone has a voice that deserves to be heard, understood, and the chance to lead a happy, healthy, fulfilling life. Together we will look at what has hindered you to find what you are looking for. This looks different for everyone.

We must begin by shifting stories you may have about yourself. I will walk with you every step of the way.

I am honored to be a part of your journey.

The therapeutic experience I strive to provide to all my clients includes warmth, openness, compassion, and confidentiality. The counseling session is your time to explore and discuss anything relevant to you which may include working through past challenges still lingering in your consciousness; stress that has compounded to anxiety, depression, and/or panic; relationship issues blocking joy; fears creating inability to be productive or make choices in your life, to name a few. Counseling might also be a time to explore and develop greater wellness strategies with focus on diet, exercise, sleep strategies, etc. My approach is to support you with positivity and emphasis on your strengths. I encourage gratitude and self-compassion as means to overcome obstacles you may be facing on the inside and/or outside. I utilize reflection, intuition, education/training, and desire to assist you as you work through what you want to transform.

I feel that finding the right therapist for you is key for your wellness journey. I strive to meet my clients where they at and help create the wellness journey that best fits their needs. As an eclectic therapist with strong roots in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) it is important to me that we create wellness goals for you to track your progress as well as leave you a safe space to process anything that might be on your mind.

Many new clients ask how they sessions are conducted and too often I hear clients say that they have been in therapy where the first four sessions were their "intake sessions". I spend the first session exploring more about yourself and your goals for therapy and then by the second session we hit the ground running. It is my goal that my clients learn new tools and are able to process their needs as soon as possible in order to find alleviation of some of the symptoms that prompted them to engage in therapy. Whether its a desire to sleep better, cope with anxiety symptoms, or finding new ways to set their intentions; these are all tools that can be explored while also working on larger goals you have set.

Remember that taking the first step is the hardest step. I'm looking forward to working with you and remember that there is no reason to walk on this journey alone.
