Therapists Specializing in Postpartum Depression in Texas

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.

In my personal and professional experience, people walk around wearing invisible masks- we all put on a "brave face" so as not to be judged in our daily interactions. When asked, "How are your doing today?" The expected response is, "I'm fine." or "I'm doing great, how about you?" Question: Are we really fine everyday? Let's talk about what's underneath the "I'm fine." Working with me, we get to take off our masks and be our true selves. I welcome the opportunity to work with you to explore who you are, who you are becoming, and what your personal, professional, and relationship goals are. I also look forward to growing with you as we both exercise our mental muscle towards a better version of ourselves.

My main saying, which is plastered all over my website, is 'you deserve peace just as much as anyone else'. I remember what it felt like to have little to no peace/contentment, and it's miserable. When I was at my worst with my own mental health diagnoses, I would describe to others that I felt like a half-dead person, just kind of walking around in a perpetual state of being asleep. When I started getting better, it's like I woke up.

I named my practice 'The Wakeful State', because that's my hope for you: to be in a state of wakefulness, clarity, and a little closer to joy. If you're willing to talk and change, I believe I can help get you to your own wakeful state.

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.
