Treatment for PPAD can involve:

~processing a mom's labor and childbirth experience;

~affirming her fears and worries while giving her the space to be heard and validated;

~identifying and/or building a positive support system;

~supporting the mother/baby relationship;

~identifying and changing negative patterns of thoughts and behaviors;

~discovering a mom's values and beliefs around Motherhood and parenting;

~making a referrals for medication.


Treatment for anxiety, depression, stress and grief can include:

~identifying and changing negative patterns of thoughts;

~identifying and confronting fears that keep us stuck in unhealthy patterns of behaviors;

~processing unresolved loss and grief;

~finding and building upon a client's self esteem and self worth;

~the role our mothers play in our own mothering;

~learning ways to manage and reduce the often overwhelming stress of daily living.


Treatment is rooted in psychodynamic and grief principles. Treatment modalities can include psycho-education, CBT, psychotherapy, mindfulness, parenting skill building, and grief work. Treatment focus becomes acceptance, adaptation, and integration of this new aspect of self (mother) while learning how to move forward with reflection, confidence, and grace. This adaptation process happens continually across the lifespan for moms.
