LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF
I am the owner and sole counselor at Talk Remedy Therapy. Counseling and therapy are a very personal experience and you should feel accepted and supported throughout. I want you to feel positively about counseling because you should live your life to the fullest.
New mommas and moms-to-be should know that there is no shame in seeking out therapy for struggles during pregnancy and postpartum. Anxiety, depression, and OCD during the perinatal period are so much more commonly experienced than we realize. There is so much excitement and anticipation during this time that many moms start asking themselves “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I just be happy?” It is normal to feel a wide range of emotions, but if you are feeling distressed I want you to have hope that things can get better.
In marriage counseling I never want spouses to feel judged or ganged up on. Rather, I suggest you think of me as you would a team coach. You and your spouse are the only members of the team called “Us” and I am here to guide you so that you draw each other closer instead of push each other farther away. Sometimes I will correct you if it’s helpful, but I focus most on encouraging and teaching helpful behaviors that we know strengthen the bonds between partners.
