Here at Mindful Soul, we offer counseling for moms suffering from postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, and other issues related to pregnancy and the adjustment to motherhood.
We offer assessment and treatment of prenatal and postpartum depression, anxiety, and related disorders including postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, traumatic birth experience and/or NICU experience, miscarriage, loss, and postpartum psychosis.
Several of our staff, including founder and director, Michelle Richardson, as well as Janel Morey-Sassano and Jessica Houghton, have completed post-graduate training on postpartum depression and anxiety with Karen Kleiman, MSW, LCSW, author and pioneer in the treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Michelle was hired as one of the first clinicians to work in Kleiman’s Postpartum Stress & Family Wellness Center in New Jersey in 2009.
“This is an illness that takes away a woman’s ability to access joy. . . right at the time she needs it the most.”
-Dr. Katherine Wisner
Our staff is passionate about helping women navigate the challenges of motherhood and parenting. We recognize the struggle in juggling the many emotions that come with motherhood in addition to meeting the expectations placed on ourselves by society, our own inner circle of family and peers, and the pressure we place on ourselves.
Please check out Mommy Matters, our therapy group for pregnant and postpartum mamas offered by Janel Morey-Sassano and hosted by The Village: South Jersey Breastfeeding & Wellness in Haddonfield.
