Will you be the 1 in 5?
Depression and anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum is a big problem, not just for 1 in 5 women, but for their partners and children as well. Left untreated, PPD can lead to lasting consequences for the family, and even death. If you think you might be at risk, please know we can prevent postpartum depression!
Will you be the 4 in 5?
I did not have full-blown clinical depression after my first baby was born. But, like the other 3 or 4, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Our society does everything wrong to support new parents. Do you worry your baby will stop breathing? Do have trouble sleeping, even when the baby finally sleeps, or have intrusive fears of something happening to you or to the baby?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE! The transition to becoming a parent is hard. I’ve found how to make the fourth trimester transition better. In this course you will learn specific skills and strategies to prevent perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. You can enjoy yourself, your life and your family.

We can prevent perinatal depression?
Yes!! The United States Preventative Services Task Force is an independent group of national experts in prevention medicine that works to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services such as screenings and interventions.
They systematically looked at all of the possible interventions – not just to treat perinatal depression – but to actually PREVENT it.
Because, how great could it be if those 1 in 5 parents didn’t get depressed in the first place?
The task force considered several known ways to treat and prevent perinatal depression. They looked at exercise, medication, education, breastfeeding support, sleep coaches, yoga, expressive writing, birth story debriefing… But the only two interventions proven to have a sizable effect in preventing the likelihood that a woman would develop postpartum depression were two types of counseling: Interpersonal Psychotherapy (or IPT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This course is based on these evidenced-based approaches and my clinical experience helping women do this one on one.
But counseling is expensive, far away,
more than I need…
I often hear barriers to counseling.
- Do you have trouble finding someone that takes your insurance?
- Are you so busy with prenatal appointments, you can’t take more time off work to see a therapist?
- Are you not sure you need psychotherapy, but want to learn strategies to prevent postpartum mood and anxiety disorders?
What if you could learn how to prevent postpartum depression and anxiety…
- From your own home – anywhere in the world?
- With a combination of videos, reading and journaling?
- At any time that works for you?
- On your own schedule, at your own pace?
- From your own computer, tablet or phone?

About the Instructor
Hi! I’m so glad you are interested in learning how to be in the best of mental health! Pregnancy and postpartum can be one of the most amazing times in our lives, or one of the worst.
Why I care about the transition to parenthood
I have been a mental health professional for over 20 years, but it wasn’t until I had my own children that I became passionate about supporting new parents. Personally, the time after my first baby was born did hit me like a ton of bricks. No one had prepared me at all for the mood changes, the pressures, or the anxiety of being a new parent.
My good fortune has become a problem
Over the last five years, I have been fortunate to have a full private practice in San Diego supporting perinatal mental health. But I don’t have enough hours in the day! OB/GYNs and other therapists keep referring clients to me and I simply do not have enough time to help everyone 1:1. I have been humbled and honored to witness the difference support and education can make to new families.
Education is not a replacement for therapy. In therapy you are fully seen and heard. But I have found over the years successful ways to help manage anxiety and depression. When I keep repeating myself and find it works for almost everyone, then I know I am on to something… What is even better is that we can PREVENT PPD! I have helped so many of my clients develop personalized plans to prevent postpartum depression and anxiety.
