Seattle Postpartum Support was founded to provide women's reproductive and maternal mental health counseling services to those experiencing the transitions, hardships, and struggles associated with conceiving, pregnancy, and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders.
Infertility, pregnancy complications, a negative birth experience, and difficulties postpartum can all impact the mental and emotional well being of parents. Postpartum mood and anxiety disorders are very real and very serious complications for women and families after the birth of a baby. Whether your first child, or your second, third, or beyond, postpartum mood disorders steal the joy from parenting in an already vulnerable and difficult transition and can happen to anyone. Nearly 20% of women suffer from some form of postpartum mood or anxiety disorder, making it the most common post birth complication. You are not alone, and Seattle Postpartum Support can help.
I work with women and families to provide support and care during the challenges of conceiving and child rearing. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Child Mental Health Specialist, and Maternal Mental Health Specialist I've spent more than a decade working with families. After experiencing the powerful transition into parenthood myself, I found that I was disappointed with the lack of services available to support families during these transitions. Seattle Postpartum Support came to be out of a desire to help families meet their wellness goals and for people to live the best versions of themselves so they can be the parents they want to be.
No individual or family should have to struggle alone, and barriers to services should be as minimal as possible. To make it easier for you and your family and to help you be more comfortable, babies are welcome in session. Please see Services for more details.
