Many of the clients I see experience chronic, excessive worry, stress or obsessive thoughts, despite the outward appearance of having everything under control. An estimated 31.1% of U.S. adults experience any anxiety disorder at some time in their lives. My goals is to help clients identify anxiety triggers, manage symptoms, and empower them to make lifestyle changes.
Depression is defined by the persistent feeling of sadness that can lead to a range of behavioral and physical symptoms. These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, daily behavior, or self-esteem. Depression can also be associated with thoughts of suicide. If you are feeling depressed, you are not alone, there is help, and you will feel better.
Maternal Mental Health
Includes infertility, grief and adoption / foster care issues, mood disorders during pregnancy (such as depression and panic attacks) and postpartum mood disorders such as postpartum anxiety and postpartum depression. Postpartum depression is the most common complication of childbirth, impacting about 20% of mothers. Having a maternal mental health issue does not mean you are a bad parent! Maternal mental health is very treatable and with help you will feel better.
For more information on maternal mental health I invite you to listen to my interview on this podcast.
