Pamela S Allon, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Westport
I specialize in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of perinatal stress & mood disorders. My practice focus also includes attachment, infertility, pregnancy loss, trauma, parenting and role adjustment/transition issues. Postpartum mood disorders affects 1 in 7 women who become pregnant. Symptoms that persist such as chronic anxiety, sadness, sleep and appetite changes, scary thoughts, and feeling numb are all symptoms of PPD. Early intervention is critical for symptom relief. Nutrition, exercise, marital & family support, & possible use of medication are incorporated into the treatment plan. Partners are encouraged to participate to the extent the couple finds it beneficial.
Major life changes are stressful and I am here to support you. We may need to think about: "What fears/hopes do you have about recreating the kind of family you grew up in?" Is there conflict in the family?" "Are you having thoughts that scare you?"
I am a mother and find working with families very rewarding. Having a baby is one of the most profound life changes we experience, and when we encounter unanticipated stress, depression and anxiety, it can be overwhelming. Visit www.centerforpostpartumsupport.com for more information.
