PERINATAL MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES
As a professional counselor who serves parents during pregnancy, postpartum and many other parenthood transitions, it is important to me to offer additional supplemental services that can assist in a healthier lifestyle. Holistic approaches are supportive of emotional, physical and mental wellness throughout parenthood.
