Behavior Therapy

For moms, it can be upsetting and frightening to have feelings about motherhood that don’t seem “right.”

For some women, a morning run, a healthy diet, and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving, and enlightening.

Therapists who have extensive education and training in post-partum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.

Common postpartum symptoms include:

  • Feeling overwhelmed and wondering if you should have become a mother in the first place

  • Feeling guilty due to high self-expectations

  • Not feeling “bonded” with the baby

  • Your thoughts are racing and you can’t quiet your mind

  • Feeling empty and numb as if you’re just going through the motions

  • Lack of focus and concentration

  • Being afraid that if you reach out for help, others will judge your inabilities

  • Thoughts of running away or leaving your baby behind

  • Being constantly in a state of worry

If one or more of the above symptoms resonates with you, we invite you to contact us today for a free consultation. Together, we’ll find the underlying issues that make you feel disconnected from your child and create a strategy for moving forward.
