Individual counseling offers an opportunity for you to work one on one with a professional counselor in a safe, compassionate, and nonjudgmental setting. It allows you to focus on addressing individual concerns and struggles as you take that next step towards seeking help and setting goals for yourself. Individual counseling is an investment you choose to make for yourself as you seek to work towards positive, impactful change in your life.
Postpartum Depression & Anxiety Individual and Group Therapy
Counseling for postpartum depression and anxiety is offered through both individual and group therapy. The postpartum period is commonly known as the time following the birth of a baby; however, mothers may notice depressive and anxious symptoms within pregnancy and throughout the first year of their baby’s life. Individual counseling offers an opportunity to work one on one with a professional counselor addressing specific postpartum concerns and struggles while group therapy provides a safe space to come together, bond, learn and grow with other moms struggling with similar concerns. Both provide you an opportunity to journey through the struggles of postpartum depression and anxiety free of guilt and judgment.
Grief & Loss
Counseling for grief and loss might include loss of a family member, friend, infant, pregnancy, or grief over the inability to conceive. Grief counseling allows you to meet in a safe, nonjudgmental environment where you can openly process the difficult and overwhelming emotions and immense pain surrounding the loss you have experienced. Here you will find support, genuine compassion, and be met wherever you are on your journey towards hope and healing.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Discover Comfort and Relief
Counseling is an opportunity for you to invest in yourself individually, in a group, as a couple, or as a family through working on specific struggles and concerns in a safe, non-judgmental setting. Counseling can be one of the most rewarding investments you choose to make for yourself as you take the next step towards making positive, impactful change in your life.
At Brazos Valley Christian Counseling we offer a variety of services to help women find comfort and healing. We invite you to contact us if you or someone you know may be suffering from depression or anxiety.
Are worry and fear impacting your ability to function day to day? Are you battling constant thoughts of the “what ifs” that could occur leaving you feeling paralyzed and unable to take steps forward? Counseling offers a safe space to open up about the fears and worries affecting you and provides an opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge helpful in learning how to better manage your anxiety symptoms.
How would you rate your current emotional health? Some might consider how stressed they have been lately or how anxious they have felt and let that determine where they would place themselves in terms of emotional health. Being emotionally healthy does not mean that you will not feel sad, fearful, angry, or stressed.
It means that you are aware of your emotions and feelings and better able to handle both the positive and negative aspects of life that come your way. Seeking counseling can help you become more aware of your thoughts and emotions and help you notice the impact they are having on you as well as help you gain the skills to respond to them differently.
A recent study in the Maternal and Child Health Journal concluded that, “More than 1 in 5 women with postpartum mood disorders don’t discuss depression or other symptoms with their doctors. Between 10% to 20% of new mothers suffer from postpartum mood disorders. More needs to be done to create social networks for new mothers.”
American Psychological Association (APA)
According to the American Psychological Association (APA), “Some women, up to 1 in 7, experience a serious mood disorder—postpartum depression (PPD). Unlike the baby blues, PPD doesn’t go away on its own. It can appear days or even months after delivering a baby; it can last for many weeks or months if left untreated. PPD can make it hard for you to get through the day, and it can affect your ability to take care of your baby, or yourself.”
National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), “Without treatment, postpartum depression can last for months or years. In addition to affecting the mother’s health, it can interfere with her ability to connect with and care for her baby and may cause the baby to have problems with sleeping, eating, and behavior as he or she grows.”
