Therapists Specializing in Postpartum Depression in Connecticut

Postpartum depression is a common mental health condition among women who have recently given birth. It is characterized by persistent symptoms of depression that appear after the baby’s birth and do not go away on their own. These symptoms might also arise during pregnancy and are equally as important to treat. Some degree of feeling overwhelmed is a normal and expected part of having a new baby. However, when these feelings are intense, persistent, or interfere with day-to-day functioning, it can be helpful to seek support from a trained mental health professional.

Working with a therapist can help new mothers process their experiences and understand potential sources of their depressive thoughts. Therapy might focus on developing coping skills, implementing self-care practices, and working towards more helpful thinking patterns and behaviors that facilitate mood improvement. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal psychotherapy are commonly used and effective therapies, though approaches may differ between therapists.

I am a licensed clinical social worker practicing in New York and Connecticut for over 30 years. Having worked in private practice, family agencies, business and schools, I have had the opportunity to help many adults, families and children with different aspects of their lives.

It’s a given that life throws us curveballs at times and sometimes these challenges become overwhelming. When you feel stuck, not able to make progress in managing your problems, therapy can help. How you handle your problem can make all the difference. You learn new problem-solving strategies, focusing on what you can do rather than what you can’t do. You also learn how to take better care of yourself, building your resiliency as well as a sense of well being.

My hope is always that you feel safe to come as you are; whether you’re actively needing to process or explore, or looking for sanctuary. My space is physical and emotional, to hold your experiences along with you, and join you wherever you are in your journey and to meet you in your needs. Sometimes that looks like listening and validation, sometimes that looks like working on things we talk about in our time together outside of the session time as well. Most importantly, however you come, I will do my best to meet you there.

Therapy can be a powerful tool to address the challenges we all encounter, including those that arise in our relationships, our work, or as a result of life transitions or loss. I believe insights gained through the collaborative psychotherapy process can relieve symptoms, support meaningful connections to others, and promote the self-esteem and skills necessary to live a fulfilling life.

I have extensive training in how to effectively integrate evidence-based practices with the latest research regarding the biological, neurological, and hormonal changes unique to women.

As such, I'm able to provide clients with education on the neurobiological basis of their distress, as well tangible tools and techniques to help them feel relief. My approach is holistic, and when appropriate, I provide referrals to psychiatrists, acupuncture, yoga and mindfulness classes.

I believe psychological treatment, in combination with holistic modalities, may provide the best outcomes for women.

It can be tough to start counseling; telling your story to someone new. It's a brave thing to seek help when life feels out of control, and you should feel proud of your choice to make a change.
I have special expertise in treating many women's issues - everything from emotional pain stemming from reproductive health challenges to dealing with infidelity in a relationship. As a woman, I understand how life can affect us differently. Problems like unplanned pregnancies, chronic illnesses, overwhelming anxiety, eating issues, postpartum mood issues - it's stuff like this that can really have an impact on how you feel.
It can be difficult to talk about the problems that are keeping us up at night, but counseling is one place where it’s ok to say anything, and to truly be heard and helped. In goal oriented psychotherapy, we will use the power of your narrative to show the way to a more connected life. You will experience a safe, empathic environment to share, learn and grow through our work together. Healing through making changes in your life isn’t always easy, but therapy can be a supportive place to start! You are the expert of you, and I want to help you use your intuition to be the best badass 'you' you can be. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.

It is essential to feel listened to and understood from a place of compassion and humanness, a place in which the therapist simply holds space for you to be you, and guides you to a direction of self-reflection in order to tap into your true, authentic self.
