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

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.

Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help when things in your life go wrong. You may be influenced by your culture to think that you are crazy if you seek help for your mental health concerns. I want to let you know that I provide a safe place for you to be who you are, feel what you feel so that you can go through the healing process, and be motivated to set boundaries in your life and make better choices.

Getting therapy takes courage and I want to commend you for taking the first step in your healing journey. In the process of therapy, things may get worse before they get better, but if you stick with it, do the work in and out of session, then you will have what you need to chart your own course in life and for the future.

The first thing you will need to do is connect with me, complete the necessary documents online, and schedule your first session. It is that easy. Everything we discuss is confidential and protected by HIPAA law. One thing I must make sure you understand is that I am not a crisis counselor. It is best that you call 911 or go to your local emergency department if you are having a mental health emergency. I can work with you and your psychiatrist to assure that you are getting the best care possible.

I understand how busy and overwhelmed you may feel and how challenging it seems to schedule another appointment. As a mama of two little ones, I get it. I hope you will consider the value of investing in yourself, even for a short period of time, for your sake and your family's. I will do my best to create a warm, supportive space for you, and I will use well-researched approaches to help you set and meet goals that matter to you. If you're feeling down, anxious, overwhelmed, or swept up in the day-to-day hustle and bustle without a clear focus, I hope you'll reach out and learn more about how things could change.

In the therapeutic context, I help clients relate differently to pain and discomfort while they create the life they desire.

Finding a therapist you connect with is an important aspect of effective therapy.

Having worked in Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and traditional addiction treatment, our Founder and Director, Katherine Casey, saw firsthand the benefits of holistic care beyond traditional talk therapy including somatic and arts therapies, providing family support, collaborating with medical providers, and referrals to community resources. Perhaps most importantly, she recognized the value of using personal insight and experiences to help guide clients on their paths to wellness and self-discovery. Today, these lessons are the principles that guide our practice.

At The Root Therapy NYC clients have the opportunity to develop insight and gain new skills while feeling empowered in the therapeutic process. Clients play a key role in developing goals and evaluating progress in the therapeutic process – they decide what they want to get out of therapy and when they have achieved their goals.

The Root Therapy NYC is staffed with therapists with a range of clinical training and expertise to help guide clients through a change process using approaches that research has proven effective. Each therapist is an individual who reflects the group’s guiding principles through ongoing clinical supervision, continuing education, community engagement, and self-care.
