counseling for pregnant women & new moms

Services

Venturing out for appointments with a newborn or young baby can be intimidating. And when you’re on bed rest? Impossible! I aim to take some of the stress away from pregnant women and new parents by offering services in their homes or with video teletherapy. My focus is to work with women and families to get them back to feeling better as soon as possible- to start feeling more confident and grounded, and able to face daily challenges. For longer-term therapy, I am happy to provide referrals!

I offer in-home services for Catonsville, Ellicott City, Columbia, Baltimore, and surrounding areas. For other locations in Maryland, you might be a candidate for video teletherapy! Here are some of the services I offer:

  • Friendly Visitor Chats: In the very beginning of the profession, social workers were referred to as “friendly visitors”. Though these dynamics might be quite different, a friendly visitor sounds just like what new parents need! Join me for a 30-minute or 60-minute session via video to discuss adjustment to your new life, planning, and resources. Includes screening parents for postpartum depression and also a copy of Birth Story Brave: A Guide for Reflecting on Your Childbirth Experience. If a longer-term therapeutic relationship is needed, I can either provide referrals, or we can discuss availability if you would like to work directly with me.

  • Birth Story Brave Package: Two one-hour sessions of birth story reflection, exploration, and processing. In person or using a secure video teletherapy platform. Includes a copy of Birth Story Brave: A Guide for Reflecting on Your Childbirth Experience!

  • Psychotherapy/Counseling: In clients’ homes or using teletherapy (in cases when we’re unable to meet in person, or if you are outside of my travel area), aimed at treating perinatal anxiety and depression or simply helping parents adjust to their new lifestyle

  • Communication: with midwives, OB/GYNs, and other healthcare providers (with the client’s consent)

  • Referrals: to community-based providers as needed

Please contact me for information about my fees. I have the ability to offer a sliding scale payment for psychotherapy.
