Becoming Mental Health counseling is team of licensed mental health counselors dedicated to providing mental health support to parents in their journey though family planning to new parenthood, with a special focus on perinatal mood disorders.
It was in my journey to parenthood that I learned how important having a "village" was. I also learned how limited access to mental healthcare and specially trained providers was. It was from there that I decided my way of contributing back to the village was going to be by creating a safe and accessible place to find mental health support.
Its hard enough to ask for help but making a commitment and getting yourself somewhere can feel too overwhelming. We want you to have the support you deserve so sessions are offered in home and via video, as well as in office.
We are also happy to be able to provide group options for postpartum as well as pregnancy and infant loss.
Supporting parents in this time is so important and I am grateful to have this team of dedicated practitioners holding space and supporting parents wherever they are. - Elise Derevjanik, Practice Owner
Initially we will work with parents to asses their goals for seeking therapy, symptoms and struggles. We will work to identify challenges and strengths and begin to work through the transitional experience of parenthood together.
