Expert Support for Your Mental Health During Pregnancy

Our Approach

We believe in guiding our clients with compassion and without judgment. Our therapists come alongside you to help you understand yourself better.

We uncover patterns in thinking and behavior that may contribute to your challenges, always prioritizing compassion for both yourself and others.

Our goal is to help you challenge the notion of perfection and to reassure you that experiencing mental health struggles does not diminish your worth or capability.

A Typical Session

During a 55-60 minute session, your therapist will listen closely without judgment or agenda. You are encouraged to share updates about your well-being, what has been working, and what hasn’t. The therapist will ask questions and provide insights or feedback.

Sessions are an open dialogue and may include:

  • Guided imagery
  • Body scanning to tune into emotions
  • Practicing skills to shift thinking patterns
  • Learning techniques to regulate emotions and calm anxiety
  • Working on concrete plans such as birth plans or postpartum support plans

Our compassionate counselors are here to support you through your pregnancy journey, helping you to feel empowered and prepared for the changes ahead.
