Jodie Hnatkovich / Forward Wellness Counseling LLC, LPC, CRC, MS, Licensed Professional Counselor in Pittsburgh
Welcome to the journey of finding the perfect counselors for you! Therapy is the best gift you can possibly give to yourself. As we move through our life, the unchanging factor is: Life Happens. Joyous occasions or traumatic losses - all change has the ability to bring high levels of stress which has us feeling out of control (and then add ALL the other contributing factors and we could have a manipulative thought spiral). Together in therapy, we will sort through the overwhelming emotions that come with each transition to bring you calm.
I have organically found a specialty focusing on women's issues, including Maternal Mental Health. I enjoy working with new parents (both mom AND dad) navigating the parenting journey and "unpacking" their pre-child era baggage . I also work with families through pregnancy loss and traumatic/ challenging child birth.
Finding the perfect therapist for you can be a large task. I encourage you to call or email to ask more about therapeutic process and orientation - no two therapists are the same! Check out Forward Wellness's website for more information: or send an email:
