Perinatal Program - Addiction & Mental Health

Perinatal Program - Addiction & Mental Health is a brief therapy program for people between 24 weeks gestation and 12 months postpartum.

Our clients come to us seeking support to cope with symptoms of anxiety or depression, grief, loss, difficulties related to their birth experience, among other challenges that are affecting their sense of wellbeing and journey into parenthood. Our goal is to support parents and young families from pregnancy through the early years of childhood. We offer short term intensive therapy in the home, at our offices or virtually for perinatal and postpartum anxiety and depression. We also offer group therapy including Perinatal Support Group, Skills for Life Group, among others.
