Healing begins with a safe place to speak your truth without being judged. I believe that talking about things, especially troubling things, beats just thinking about them hands-down. You've got to have a nonjudgmental, private space to do that - and I provide it. Together we go through the process of healing the places you are wounded or stuck. I have many tools at my disposal, including a doctoral degree, intensive training, and years of experience, but the most important one is my sense that when I am in the therapy room, I am fulfilling my life's purpose. For me there is a great joy in participating in your relief and your growth.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is designed to provide quality maternal mental health care. New mothers have a special place in my heart. I have advanced training and experience in perinatal mental health (pregnancy and postpartum) and with mothers of small children. Other places in my heart are reserved for helping professionals (healthcare providers, therapists, and teachers), women in other life phases who find themselves in transition, and children who are anxious or depressed.

In addition to more traditional talk therapy, I offer both adult and child clients Jungian sandplay therapy, a well-established nonverbal depth psychotherapy that is distinct from what others are doing in my area. I often see clients express the inexpressible as they work in the sand.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Believe it or not, I experienced postpartum depression three times. I know how it feels. Unfortunately, I did not have a name for it and therefore did not seek treatment. I'm not sure that way back then there was anybody that focused on treating pregnant and postpartum women. (My children are now adults). Good for you, for realizing that there is help for how you are feeling (whether or not it is depression, and whether or not you are postpartum).

I have been "married to medicine" for over 30 years now. My husband was in his training as an ob-gyn when we were having babies, and even he didn't realize how depressed I was each time. So, depressed moms can put an excellent face on it! However, I do think that such a close personal alliance with an ob-gyn has given me a lot of insight into the pregnancy and postpartum periods of life - even more than I had from my own experiences. As a colleague of mine once said, "Perinatal mothers are the Thompson family business."

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

You will not have to be in therapy forever! That is not the kind of therapy that I do. However, lasting change does not happen overnight, so I do ask clients to commit themselves to 8 to 12 sessions. You may need less than that, or you may need more, but you will always be consulted about it. Most women struggling with anxiety, depression, or adjustment to their situation (like new motherhood) find that 8 to 12 sessions meet their needs very well. At first, sessions will be scheduled weekly - it is very rare for me to schedule someone more than once a week. As you feel better and better, your sessions will be "stretched" to every two weeks, and then we wrap up with a few monthly sessions to make sure your recovery is solid.

Each therapy session lasts for an hour. I find that a full hour is required to fully process what is going on in your life and to thoughtfully respond to it.
