“……I can honestly say that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as believing that I am standing on the outside of my life looking in and wondering what it would be like if I had the courage to show up and let myself be seen.”
–Researcher, Brene Brown, Ph.D, LMSW from Daring Greatly
While men can and do certainly experience “standing on the outside” of their life, it seems women do so differently and more frequently. While Integrative Psychotherapy can help women with any number of issues , it can be tremendously helpful in the following specialized areas for women:

Also known as Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs), PPD is not just the Baby Blues. It is a serious, sometimes life-threatening, and treatable medical condition.
It is not the woman’s fault, and if left untreated, can have devastating long-term consequences for the pregnant or new mother, her baby (in-utero or post-partum), spouse, and other children. If you think you might have or be at risk for PPD, get assessed! PPD can start anytime during pregnancy or up to one year post-partum.
Do not suffer alone. It is not your fault. And InPsych can help.
Contact us for a post-partum assessment!

Women were not meant to have children alone. Back in the day, women lived with or very close to their own mother, grandmother, aunts, and an entire community of sisters. Today this is not the case.
