Therapists Specializing in Pregnancy, Perinatal, Postpartum Mental Health in Rhode Island

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.

Therapy is a mode of relational experience. Over the course of the initial sessions, I endeavor to build a trusting and open relationship with my clients so that we can address their major areas of concern in a high-functioning interaction where strengths and competencies are highlighted, resources are identified, and goals are discovered and evolve.

Note on sliding scale due to COVID-19: When I offer a sliding scale to my clients, we have a conversation through which we arrive at a reasonable fee based on their honest assessment of what is affordable to them.  We work it out together.  No one should be without access to good therapy, especially during these extremely difficult times.  That said, for those who are experiencing less financial hardship may elect to pay more, their generosity will offset the need of others and allow me to care for more individuals in greater need.  We are in this together.

Finding a therapist that you can open up to and feel comfortable with can be difficult. Sometimes it can be hard to share your inner most thoughts with a total stranger. I strive to build a unique relationship with each client and make every therapy session a warm, inviting and a safe space where clients will feel heard and understood. I engage with clients to make treatment goals that fit their needs. Life events and transitions can often feel overwhelming, I aim to provide a place where clients can sort through their thoughts and feelings.
