A friendly face with a comfy couch and a quiet space to just be still and breathe. No expectations. No judgement. No hidden agenda.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in West Bloomfield, MI
No single method of psychotherapy works for everyone. I use an eclectic approach based on an individual's unique concerns informed by past experiences and current therapy goals.
Life is stressful. We can work together to manage and reduce your stressors AND find appropriate coping strategies for your toolbox.
I LOVE working with pregnant and new mamas to set healthy expectations, identify postive coping strategies, and celebrate their accomplishments while creating a safe space to work out the rest. Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders is an umbrella term which includes Anxiety, Depression, Psychosis, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder during pregnancy or up to 1 year postpartum. Statistically, 1 in 5 women are diagnosed and less than half are treated.
It is not easy to take care of yourself when you've got kids. As moms, we have a tendency to put their needs (and wants) above our own. We forget to take time out and reaffirm our identities as individuals. Instead, we become solely know as, "Aria's Mom." Going to therapy gives you 55 minutes of uninterrupted YOU time - to remember your name and figure out who you are. We can also process this whole "parenting" thing and figure out how you can be the best mom you can be!
