Bright, accomplished women are often taken by surprise by the intense emotional and personal challenges posed by pregnancy, postpartum, and new motherhood. You can become moody, irritable, anxious, or stressed when you're faced with new motherhood or when you add another child to your family. Relationships with your baby, your older children, your spouse, or your co-workers can become strained. It's easy to become overwhelmed and to feel a bit lost. I am well-equipped to help you navigate these challenges because my practice is all about providing mothers with gold-standard care. Space, skill and support are the three founding principles of my therapy work - a safe space to talk, skill in getting to your truth and generating solutions, and support as you heal. These three principles allow us together to build something new and wonderful in your life.

More Info About My Practice

Mothers, whether new or experienced, need to be heard, affirmed and supported. Women's lives are fast-paced and complex, and without the proper supports in place, motherhood can quickly become overwhelming. Therapy during the perinatal period (e.g., pregnancy and postpartum) can enhance your motherhood experience for many years to come - that's why it's the heart and soul of what I do! But if your children aren't babies anymore, it's not too late. It's never too late to make a change.

If you are a helping professional, such as a physician, nurse, therapist, or teacher, you take care of others all day and then come home to take care of your family. Therapy is a good way to replenish yourself. My husband of over 30 years is an ob-gyn physician, and my father was a public school educator, so I have a good idea of the burdens you bear.

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).

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 - over and above what I have from my own experiences and years of graduate education. 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 will ask you to commit yourself to 8 to 12 sessions. Most women struggling with anxiety, depression, or adjustment to a new situation 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. You will need time to marinate, so to speak, in the things that we discuss each session. As you feel better and better, your sessions will be stretched out 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.
