I am a clinical social worker and I specialize in perinatal mental health. The transition to motherhood can be challenging. I can help!
Clinical Social Worker in Franklin, MA
I specialize in treating women during the perinatal period. I have worked with families for over 20 years and for the past 12 years I have been counseling and supporting women during their transition to motherhood and beyond. The perinatal period can be anxiety-producing and otherwise challenging for many women. Whether you suffer from a perinatal mood disorder or are adjusting to your new role as mother I can help.
Parenting toddlers and preschoolers can be anxiety-producing for many moms. Do you struggle with feelings of worry, fear or dread? Do you feel guilty in your role as mother? Are you concerned that you’re not able to give your young child the attention they crave? Do you anger easily or feel sad much of the day? Are you and your partner arguing and having trouble "getting on the same page" with regard to parenting? I can help!
May women struggle with anxiety and depression during the perinatal period. I provide a supportive and compassionate environment where we work together to improve your mood, manage your worries, and learn strategies to cope with the stress you are experiencing. I use a range of therapeutic techniques such as CBT, solution-focused treatment, and mindfulness to help clients feel better and enjoy new motherhood.
I help women during the perinatal period to learn skills and use their internal resources to solve problems and reach their goals.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, simply put, helps people change their thoughts and behaviors which in turn improves their mood.
I help women in the perinatal period to use mindfulness techniques to manage their thoughts and feelings and ultimately to improve their mood.
