Dallas Postpartum Support

To provide hope and healing to women who are struggling with depression and anxiety during pregnancy or after childbirth. To my courageous moms,
Motherhood, whether you are a newbie or veteran, can be pure elation and joy.

It can also be a time of doubt, fear, vulnerability and exhaustion. There are a lot of unknowns and even more conflicting advice. Sometimes you can feel overwhelmed, grateful, joyous and despairing all at the same time. How can that be? Well-meaning friends and family may say, “Isn’t this the best time of your life?”, “Aren’t you just the happiest mommy?” You may feel like saying, “Yes, but…….. I

Interested in supporting someone through a tough time? Are you going through it?
Of course we avoid negative, insensitive comments to the best of our abilities.😇 Are you aware that you can have good intentions but still invalidate and hurt others? That is what we call Toxic Positivity! A good, all-around answer to hurt is- "I am so sorry, that is hard, how can I support you?" And then- stop ✋. Pause ⏸. And listen 👂.

To my beloved colleagues and MY therapist: I see you. I understand. I feel you in my heart. I am so proud of you.
Man, what a year. As a therapist, there were/are times I was/am unsure of how to process what I was/am experiencing, while holding space for my patients. The hits kept coming for everyone- an onslaught of global, communal and personal traumas...ON TOP of already existing issues.
And I am human. I have ugly cried. I have felt scared and uncertain. I have grieved innumerable losses.
And yet, as a therapist, I cannot stop. Nor do I want to. 2020 had a massive out-cry for mental health help.
We were built for this and signed up for this, but dang... this has been/is a lot. Therapists aren't considered front line workers... but we must be somewhere a few rows back. ✌🤟💪

To the incredible women I work with: I wish for you to experience moments of delight during this holiday season.
Delight can look like a favorite movie, a hot cup of tea or a moment of quiet hiding in the pantry eating chocolate in peace. A moment of delight can be a laugh or a deep breath of fresh air. Savor those moments. Be easy and kind to yourselves. We deserve it after this year.

Many moms express guilt over their boredom and annoyance, "Shouldn't I be loving every minute?" Ummm, who told you that? As a grown adult I have a limit for wiping butts, Legos and little army men (especially when I step on them.) You are meant to have age appropriate friends and engage in age appropriate activities. So I'm here to tell you- No, you do not have to love every minute. That doesn't mean you don't love your kid. ❤

You dont have to like what you are accepting. When you acknowledge what IS, you can diffuse suffering and take back some of your power.

5 Ways to Lovingly Support Someone With C-PTSD

Complex Trauma can be misdiagnosed as a personality disorder, bipolar symptoms, anxiety, depression, ADHD (to name a few!). Complex trauma simply means you have layers of trauma in your life that have piled up. If this is you, please seek professional help and an accurate diagnosis.
