How We Can Help
Are you a community provider?
The entire process of becoming a mom can be really magical. It can be amazing, stressful, scary, you name it. But sometimes, it can feel like more than you can handle. It can feel overwhelming, can cause us to feel emotions we can't seem to "shut -off", and can leave our friends and family confused about how to help. One in five women experience feelings of sadness, anxiety, and sometimes even obsessive thoughts during pregnancy as early as the first trimester. We specialize in helping moms manage these feelings as they arise during pregnancy and continue helping even after your baby is born.
There is nothing like holding your new baby in your arms. But not all moms get to feel the joy that can come from being a new mom. Between one in three and one in five women experiences postpartum depression after the birth of their first child and these numbers increase with every child after. Out of those women, only 15 percent get help the help they need. At Her Hope Behavioral Health, we help moms find their way to enjoying their babies and their new journey of motherhood with the help of individual and group therapy. Being a mom is hard and it's important to know you don't have to do this alone!
Pregnancy Loss, Stillbirth, Infertility
So many of us desire to be mothers/parents to a little one created with our own bodies. We hope for the experience of watching ourselves grow as our bodies support a life. We desire the experience of bonding with our partner and little-one-to-be. But for some of us, there are challenges to meeting our babies. Whether you have experienced pregnancy loss, still birth, or the loss of an infant, we are here to support you through it all. Too many families suffer through this grief alone, in silence. You are not alone.
Being a teenage girl is hard. But, being the caregiver of a teenage girl can be hard too. Sometimes as a parent, you can feel powerless to help your teenage daughter work through the day-to-day struggles of navigating life as a teen in the digital/social media age. Counseling for your teen girl can give her an outlet and a safe place to be honest about what she is facing. And, can help you, as a parent, rest easy at night knowing you have someone to partner with you in helping your teen build the skills she needs to gain confidence, independence, and good decision making.
Reproductive Mental Health
People today are busier than ever before. We work hard and we move fast. Information, for any topic, is at our fingertips, anytime of the day or night. But, for many women, there are still so many missing pieces when it comes to our reproductive and mental health. There's PMDD, endometriosis, PCOS, and so many other diagnosis that women struggle with directly related to their reproductive health. What we often don't address is how our mood is affected by these struggles. Frustration, sadness, anger, depression, and even anxiety can all occur when managing reproductive health concerns.
Pre-menopause and Beyond
For women, life is full. Full of joy, full of hard work, sleepless nights, long days, fun, and lots of change. But, we don't always know how to manage the many transitions in life we face. One of the most difficult transitions for women later in life is transitioning through hormonal changes brought on by the beginning stages of pre-menopause, or perimenopause. Changes in hormone production during this sensitive time cause more than hot flashes here and there. This stage can cause shifts in our mood, can change our ability to care for ourselves and our loved ones, can cause some scary thoughts, and can cause damage to our relationships. But with the right help and guidance, it is possible to transition through the perimenopausal stage with your emotional wellness intact.
When dealing with changes in hormones due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or challenging stages of life, medication, with the combination of talk therapy, can help you achieve mental wellness. With the help of a therapist and a prescribing professional, you can get back to obtaining feelings of health, peace, and wellness. Click the button below to schedule your appointment.
Therapists, physicians, nurses, midwives, doulas, first responders. As people who help people, you have the toughest jobs there are. You hear, and see, individuals and families at their most vulnerable points in life. Sometimes, it can be hard not to take some of it home with you. Making it even harder to juggle responsibilities to your patients and the desire to be fully present with your loved ones. Sometimes, as people helpers, things are hard to "un-see" and unhear. Schedule a consultation with one of our therapists who focus solely on helping those who help people.
