Meet with us in our Jersey City office or via telehealth for online therapy. 

In therapy, our perinatal specialists will ask all about your pregnancy and birth story, get to know you, and walk you through an assessment to identify postpartum depression or anxiety and its severity level.  We’ll make the right recommendations from there and will work with your doctor or nurse if that’s part of your care plan.   

Therapy is a commitment to carving out time for yourself as a new parent–a space to discuss your thoughts, feelings, and concerns about this new season of life.  


We utilize evidence-based approaches like cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques to help you process your emotions, challenge negative thought patterns, and develop effective coping strategies. Our goal is to support you in your journey toward healing, recovery, and finding joy in motherhood and fatherhood.
