Joanna has advanced and comprehensive clinical training in working with perinatal patients, their partners, and families. She utilizes an eclectic therapeutic approach, recognizing that each person is unique and utilizes techniques that will allow patients to feel better quickly.
Therapy can help to alleviate fear and suffering so that mothers can feel confident in their new roles, navigate changes within their relationships, and are able to attend to their own individual needs.
In addition to individual therapy, Joanna provides perinatal stress support groups through partnerships with The Breastfeeding Center of Greater Washington and The QuarterLife Center. She also provides psychoeducation workshops to professional clinicians to increase awareness around perinatal and maternal mental health issues.
