In addition to providing comprehensive and personalized services for my clients, I also post helpful links for site visitors to enjoy and benefit from. Although nothing beats a custom-tailored program, I hope you’ll find these resources helpful.

Perinatal Support Washington (PS-WA)
Support for Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Loss
The death of a baby is a life-changing experience. Most parents are not able to satisfactorily grieve the loss of a newborn, or a baby who died during pregnancy. They are expected to put their lives back together and continue with life as if the loss did not occur. This is what society expects us to do. Parents need to grieve their loss. Although, this may seem difficult it is a necessary and natural process. Often the pain we have isn’t known or understood by the people we love and others. P.S. can help.
Swedish Center for Perinatal Bonding and Support
The Day Program is an intensive program expressly designed to address perinatal mood and anxiety disorders that are significantly impacting daily life or attachment with baby.

Matthew McKay, PhD, Jeffrey C. Wood, PsyD, and Jeffrey Brantley, MD
First developed by Marsha M. Linehan for treating borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has proven effective as treatment for a range of other mental health problems, and can greatly improve your ability to handle distress without losing control and acting destructively. However, to make use of these techniques, you need to build skills in four key areas: distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
