Have you been feeling depressed or anxious since the birth of your child?
Maybe you can’t sleep, or perhaps you’ve been fighting more with your partner. You may be having a hard time keeping up with everything you have to do, or you find yourself constantly worrying.
Whatever it is that you’re experiencing, you’re beginning to notice the impact of this in every facet of your life:
- You feel like you can’t enjoy parenthood, or at least you’re not enjoying it as much as everyone else seems to.
- Your relationship with your partner is suffering.
- You feel guilty for not ‘enjoying every moment’ with your child, and you’re super hard on yourself any time you feel like you’re not succeeding at parenting.
- It can be hard to drag yourself out of bed in the morning, and forget about getting everything done that’s on your never ending to do list.
Therapy for postpartum depression and anxiety can help.
It may feel impossible, but you can feel better. You can get to a place where parenthood feels easier and more joyful. And I can help you get there.
Therapy for postpartum depression and anxiety helps you do 3 things:
- Explore the root of the problems you’re experiencing.
- Identify how to improve your current situation, including your symptoms and your relationships with yourself and others.
- Learn to master the tools that will help you resolve your problems so that you can move forward.
I’ll help you through this process, tailoring each step to your unique needs and circumstances. My approach to therapy comes from a place of hope: I believe people are capable of learning to handle their problems on their own, they just need some additional support sometimes.
You don’t have to continue to feel hopeless and overwhelmed.
I can help you change that.
You May Have Questions About Therapy For Postpartum Depression or Anxiety
What are therapy sessions like?
In general, during therapy sessions we will talk about the issues that you are struggling with and focus on understanding both where these issues come from and ways that you can cope with your situation. We will discuss what you can do to decrease your symptoms and how you can improve your relationships. I take an active role in therapy sessions, meaning that I talk frequently and often provide feedback.
How common is postpartum depression or anxiety?
It’s common for people who are experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety to feel isolated and alone in their experience and to believe that no other parents are feeling this way. However, it’s much more common than you might think. Believe it or not, one in seven women and one in ten men experience postpartum depression. Also, one in ten women experience postpartum anxiety. You are not alone in what you are experiencing, and there are effective treatments available to help you feel better.
My child is almost one year old. Are my symptoms still classified as postpartum depression?
Yes, you can still be experiencing postpartum depression even if your child is almost one year old. If you do not receive treatment for your symptoms of postpartum depression or anxiety it is possible that these symptoms will continue throughout your child’s first year of life. This is why early detection of your symptoms and being able to receive effective treatment are so important.
Is therapy worth the cost?
Therapy is an investment, not only of money, but also of time and energy. My guess is that you’ve tried other things to improve your life, but that these things haven’t helped. Often people have been struggling for a long time, and have lost months or years of their life to their symptoms. It is worth it to meet with a professional who has been helping people for many years to see how much you may be able to improve with treatment.
