Do I have to be in “bad shape” to make an appointment with a counselor?
No, definitely not. In fact, it is often better to address issues sooner rather than later. If you are suffering from postpartum depression, anxiety, PTSD, or any other mental health concern, it is strongly recommended to seek help from a licensed professional as soon as possible.
Will my counselor be nosy?
Your counselor will be there to listen to the issues that are bothering you and to discuss strategies for dealing with problems that come your way. These topics probably feel personal, but your licensed professional counselor is highly trained and devoted to helping you!
Will my information be private?
Yes. We adhere to best practice standards for patient privacy. You can opt out of appointment alerts.
Is it normal to have thoughts of hurting my child or myself?
No. Please call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or 911 immediately.
What if I don’t want to make an appointment but I need to talk to someone?
If there is not a crisis, but you need support you can call the PSI (postpartum support international) HelpLine at 1-800-944-4773 . You may call at any time and leave a confidential message and a support member will return your call as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can text the HelpLIne at 503-894-9453.
