Reproductive Mental Health

In my volunteer work with Postpartum Support International and as an intern at Luna Perinatal Therapy here in Madison, I have worked with countless individuals and families touched by reproductive mental health issues. In each and every person, I found a story of people who longed to be whole and healthy. Often I found people struggling to be the parents they wanted to be, and to have the bond with their babies they so richly deserved. My work focuses on supporting healthy attachment, increasing healthy coping, and offering compassionate care to parents.

As a survivor of postpartum depression, a particular passion of mine is supporting clients working on reproductive mental health issues. These include but aren't limited to: 

 

  • Birth trauma

  • Pregnancy and birth loss

  • Fertility issues

  • Abortion

  • Postpartum depression and anxiety

  • Postpartum OCD

  • Depression/anxiety in pregnancy

  • Early parenting challenges

In Home Therapy

As part of this work, I am pleased to  offer in-home therapy to clients who may find it difficult to come to an office, whether because of a bedrest order or recovery from a difficult birth. Please contact me to discuss the possibility of in-home therapy.
