Therapists Specializing in Postpartum Depression in New York

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 clinical social worker with over thirty years of experience working with adults, couples, and families. I see my role as your therapist is to compassionately support your personal growth through the use of empirically supported interventions and to promote practical coping strategies to handle life's many stressors. I provide culturally sensitive and trauma-informed care, and welcome clients of all ages, genders and sexual identities. The values of transparency, empathy, and the validation of your personal truth are essential components of my model of care and I treat my clients as partners in creating their own creative solutions to life's many challenges.

As a native New Yorker, I have worked with clients of all socio- economic and cultural groups residing throughout the mosaic of the New York Metropolitan Area.

I utilize evidence based approaches to provide practical solutions, strategies for managing life's challenges and symptom relief. I view all of us as part of systems, whether that be familial, professional, or social and we are all impacted by issues of racial, gender, and economic inequities. I emphasize the connections between our emotional and physical wellness, and provide holistic, person centered care. I enjoy working with children and their families to improve communication and assist them in weathering life transitions such as loss, divorce, and the creation of new or blended families.

Young children can be as exasperating as they are adorable, and -- as a mom myself -- I know that loving your kid deeply doesn’t mean that you love every single part of your kid, every minute of every day. The truth is, every child is different, as is every mom and every dad; “one size fits all” just doesn’t apply to parenting. Whether we meet once, once a month, or once a week, I can help you wade through the books, blogs, and unsolicited playground advice to figure out the parenting style and strategies that work best for you, your child, and your family.

You may feel like you are functioning in life, but struggling underneath. With so much uncertainty in the world, you may be experiencing more anxiety, sadness, or overwhelm. Perhaps you are struggling in your intimate relationship, with your family or friends or by yourself. No matter your situation, talking to someone can be helpful to feel more grounded, clear, and less stressed.

In allowing ourselves to feel, we create a space within to open and grow. In our busy lives, we often forget our true nature and end up feeling stuck, tired, anxious and unhappy.

As a holistic and depth oriented therapist, my role is to support my adults and couples in finding wholeness — mind, body, and spirit — creating more joy, ease, and healthy relationships. I help my clients remember their empowered authentic voice and “tap back in” to their true self.

In a safe and warm environment, my clients are able to explore their past and their present, to understand what’s missing in their life, what they truly yearn for, and what is keeping them apart from that. Through this exploration, I help clients express their inner most desires, bringing more peace, balance, and happiness to their lives.

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.

As humans, we have seasons where we feel lost or in pain. I offer compassionate, evidence-based therapy. As a psychologist, I see my clients as partners in the process of healing. I respect the wisdom that you bring into the room, your understanding of yourself and your history-- and make room for the pieces of yourself that you find difficult to understand. I aim to build on this insight and to utilize my expertise to help you live a vibrant life.

My approach is present-focused, active and tailored to your individual needs. I am anchored in the third wave CBT tradition and utilize exposure therapy when appropriate as well as mindfulness and values-based work to build meaning and reduce suffering. It has been humbling to be a part of my clients' journeys as they break out of crippling patterns and open up possibilities in their lives that before seemed impossible. Above all, I work to create an environment where you can feel connected to me and to the work we are doing together.
