Therapy for Pregnancy
This pregnancy isn’t quite what you expected…
Everyone tells you how wonderful it is and offers their (unsolicited) advice. You smile and nod politely, because what else can you do? You couldn’t possibly tell them you are struggling so you keep your secret hidden.
You’ve already started to question whether you can even be a good mom and are worried about what will happen when the baby arrives, counting down the weeks with a knot in your stomach that doesn’t quite feel like the anticipation you’d anticipated.
Perhaps you find yourself frequently worried about you, the baby, and whether you are capable of being a good mom, or you feel so irritated, gloomy, and frustrated that you don’t feel like yourself anymore. Either way, know that you are not alone.
As a licensed therapist based in Southlake, Texas and offering online therapy for expecting moms throughout Texas and Florida, I am especially trained to treat anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges that occur during pregnancy, as well as postpartum. I can work with you to figure out the root of your issue and help you learn the skills to cope with pregnancy while setting you up with the tools you’ll need as a new mom.
Pregnancy is hard, but motherhood doesn’t necessarily get easier unless we work at it and find support. This is where I come in. By empowering you with the tools you need, you can be set up for success to enjoy life and motherhood, not just survive it.
What can you expect to get from therapy for pregnant & expecting moms?
When you decide to invest in yourself (because yes, you are worth it), you not only get a trained professional who will help you develop the strategies to create meaningful changes, but you’ll also get someone who is a fellow mom and understands what it is like to struggle and feel like you have to hide it from the world.
You can count on me to be there alongside you as you navigate challenging times, give you the support, empathy, and validation you need, and provide you with insights to help you begin to experience life through a different lens.
Right now, everything feels hard. It’s ok, I can help. Things don’t have to be this way. My online therapy practice for moms and moms-to-be based in Southlake, Texas is designed with moms like you in mind.
You may find yourself constantly overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious, or depressed. The baby isn’t here yet and you wonder whether you can handle this. Maybe you thought you’d be glowing as you painted the baby’s nursery yet instead you find yourself guilty because you don’t feel like you’re bonding with the baby in the way you’d expected. Wherever you are, I get it and I’m here for you.
