New Mothers

Many New Mothers have a difficult time dealing with post-partum issues. Combination of rapidly changing hormone levels, lack of sleep, and frequently social support issues may create a very challenging environment for a woman.

My treatment approach includes:

  • Interview
  • Testing including Beck’s Depression and Anxiety Inventory
  • Resources and family structure evaluation

Together, we will develop a personalized treatment plan which may include:

  • Anxiety and Depression therapy
  • Assistance with application for short term disability (if necessary)
  • Facilitate improvements in the social support structure
  • Family sessions (if necessary)
  • Stress management techniques
