Therapists Specializing in Postpartum Depression in Rhode Island

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.

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.
