Pre and post-natal therapy and counseling for mothers and expectant moms in Los Gatos, Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley
Motherhood isn’t easy. Feelings of guilt, anxiousness, anger or depression can take their toll. Depression can often go undiagnosed during and after pregnancy.
Feelings of sadness, low self-esteem, anger and/or emotional numbness that don’t get better within a few days could be signs of depression during pregnancy, and it’s important to seek support and treatment. Perinatal depression is debilitating sadness or low mood that affects someone during pregnancy (known as pregnancy depression), within the first 12 months of having a baby (known as postpartum depression) or both.
We have a team of dedicated therapists at TherapyWorks to support mothers seeking support for mental health concerns around pregnancy and motherhood.
While People of Color (POC) have similar rates of mental health disorders to caucasians, these disorders are more likely to last longer and result in more significant disability for POC. Most mental illness goes untreated, especially in communities of color. 52% percent of Whites with a mental illness received mental health services in 2020, compared to 37.1% of Blacks and 35% of Hispanics.
Mental health problems can be both the cause and result of difficulties in BIPOC-identifying individuals.
We specialize in helping with:
Anxiety + Worries
Stress + Overwhelm
Pregnancy Grief + Loss
