Perinatal mood & Anxiety Disorders
Our office specializes in supporting the well-being of growing families with a unique focus on Maternal Mental Health. Emotionally and mentally healthy moms are essential to the development of healthy children and families. Beginning in early pregnancy, a woman begins a profound, life-altering personal journey; an identity shift of major proportion that evokes questions around purpose, roles, values, relationships, and beliefs; "Who am I now"? Treatment focus becomes accepting, adapting, and redefining self and purpose and learn how to move forward with reflection, confidence, and grace. This adaptation process happens continually across the lifespan for moms.
