Women's Mental Health
Women face unique emotional and psychological challenges throughout their lives. If you are struggling with infertility, postpartum depression or anxiety, or mood issues related to hormonal shifts or menopause, you are not alone.
The impacts of infertility on your body and physical health are often discussed. The emotional impacts of infertility on an individual, couple, or family are just as significant, yet they tend to go unaddressed. Infertility can be stressful and overwhelming, sometimes leading to depression, feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, or difficulties in relationships or work. Women who have undergone infertility treatment are also at a higher risk of postpartum depression and anxiety.
Our clinicians have extensive experience and understanding of both the physical and emotional impacts of infertility, and are here to help.
Postpartum Depression & Anxiety
And if you are suffering from postpartum depression or anxiety, it may be difficult for you to share your feelings with others out of shame or guilt for not experiencing motherhood as a joyous occasion.
Our experienced and caring team of therapists can help you overcome these issues. We provide you with a safe, supportive, and validating environment where you can share your feelings, frustrations, and stresses without fear of judgment. We can help you identify some healthy coping strategies and self-care techniques as you navigate this challenging phase in your life. Depending on your needs, we also offer couples counseling to help you and your partner find effective communication and coping styles as you overcome the emotional challenges associated with the adjustment to life with a child.
Perimenopause and related mood disorders
In addition to the physiological changes it induces, many women experience psychological changes during the transition to menopause (perimenopause). Some women breeze through this transition, and experience it as a time of growth and transformation. Others suffer terribly, experiencing symptoms such as depression, anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, memory problems, and sexual dysfunction. Talk therapy is beneficial to address the specific issues that arise, and our trained therapists are here to help you navigate the transition.
