You are not alone. I can help.
Welcome! I’m Susan Marchioni. I am a Massachusetts Licensed and Certified Perinatal Mental Health Counselor.
I proudly support women experiencing symptoms of a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD), have faced a pregnancy or infant loss, experienced pregnancy and/or childbirth as traumatic, and who are adjusting to Motherhood.
I offer private, online counseling services using HIPAA-compliant telehealth technology.
Having a new baby is an exciting time. It is supposed to be filled with great joy and happiness. However, not all women feel this way.
Has your pregnancy, childbirth and the adjustment to motherhood been more challenging? Are you feeling more fear, anxiety and sadness instead? Does it seem as if the baby blues just won’t go away?
If so, you are not alone. It is estimated that 1 in 5 women will experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD) as a complication of pregnancy and childbirth.
"You helped me claim my life. Not reclaim, no. Claim. Anyone who has birthed a child knows once you bring new life into the world, the life you once knew is over. Unmoored in new motherhood, you helped me to see that letting go of some of my previous life was not a loss, but a benefit. You helped me learn to look forward instead of grasping at what was behind me. I've been able to integrate the important parts of my old life into this new expansive world of family."
"Susan was so incredibly helpful as I adjusted to having my baby home after a traumatic birth and lengthy hospital stay. I am so grateful that I could bring my infant with me to the appointments, or use Telehealth, to get the help I needed conveniently without having to find a babysitter.
Thank you again for everything!"
"Sue really helped me process my unexpected birth experience. She also provides a safe and comfortable space to discuss the very real challenges of being a mother and life in general. Thanks!"
"I can't believe how much I've learned about myself since seeking help with you, and how far I've come since having my son!
Thank you so much!"
"After working with Susan virtually for only a short period of time, I was able to make great gains during my grief process. Susan was gentle and tender while still attending to all of my concerns. By the end of each session, Susan had helped me realize so much about myself and connect so many dots; I felt like I was discovering new things about myself each time.
Thanks so much!"
