Therapists Specializing in Postpartum Depression in Maryland

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.

A special note to my prospective online clients: I feel privileged to help my clients through a variety of challenges as they embrace life transitions. Working together, I can help you move forward with confidence and strength.
Many of my clients come to me with mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. I am very mindful of the degree to which you appear to be impacted in your daily life by these symptoms when we are working together. Please understand that your safety and well-being is most important to me. I am not equipped in my current office setting to manage severe depression, active thoughts of harming yourself in any way, or thoughts and ideas that do not connect to existing reality. If we begin working together and symptoms like these become apparent, I will make additional referrals for you in order to assure that you receive the best possible care and support.
