Additional Resources for Postpartum Families
I am a certified Gottman Bringing Baby Home educator. I specialize in early childhood learning, and I graduated from the Napa Infant Parent Mental Health Fellowship. However, I am not a therapist. If you need support from a Gottman therapist, the Gottman Referral Network is a resource to find a certified Gottman therapist in your area. Click for more information.
Angela is a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in "postpartum mood disorders as well as relationship issues that come up during pregnancy and postpartum. If you’ve had a baby in the last 2 years, it’s important that you find a therapist that specializes in the unique circumstances of life, body, and mental health during this immensely transformative experience of parenthood."

"Asking for help is a big step. Are you struggling with feeling sad, anxious, having a hard time? Going thru some difficult times? Transitions? I am here to help you. I am a very goal oriented therapist, providing helpful skills, feedback, support and direction. I will work with you using a variety of treatment approaches based on what you need. I find Mindfulness CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) a very effective approach to help you feel better and take action. I also utilize EMDR, (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) as a tool to help with trauma and other issues.
I have specialized training and experience working with pregnant and postpartum women. I am a member of Postpartum Support International(PSI) and have completed their training. I have developed and led a variety of groups, including Pregnancy and Postpartum Support Groups, and numerous Mindfulness CBT groups." Reach her at email@example.com or at 408-207-2717.
